Four good reasons to use the platform

The School Education Gateway is free of charge for all users. Here, you can:

  • STAY INFORMED – with new content every week, including opinion pieces by experts, news articles, interviews, up-to-date publications, and examples of practices.
  • FIND RESOURCES – such as reports from recent research, teaching materials created in European projects and training courses, and the European Toolkit for Schools, with material on preventing early school leaving and a self-assessment tool to help you develop your own school actions.
  • DEVELOP YOURSELF – with the Teacher Academy, offering free online courses developed by our in-house experts, as well as webinars and teaching materials.
  • GET FAMILIAR WITH FUNDING – through the Erasmus+ Opportunities, consisting of three practical tools (course catalogue, mobility opportunities directory and strategic partnership search) for schools to prepare their Erasmus+ applications.
