Erasmus+ A practical guide for school leaders
How can Erasmus+ funding be used to improve teaching and learning in my school? What professional development opportunities can we offer our teachers through Erasmus+? How can Erasmus+ help my school to raise its profile and connect with stakeholders? The answers to these and many other questions can be found in the new Erasmus+ guide for school leaders.
The guide is designed for school leaders (head teachers, school principals, team leaders, coordinators, etc.) who want to know what the Erasmus+ programme has to offer in the fields of pre-primary, primary and secondary education.
The first section of the guide outlines the benefits schools can derive from applying for Erasmus+ and reviews the opportunities available within the programme, namely staff mobility and strategic partnerships. This section also explores the advantages of linking up with other schools online through eTwinning.
The second section provides step-by-step advice on developing a successful Erasmus+ application, finding the right European partners and building upon the experience of different schools. This section also offers real project examples to inspire school leaders, help generate ideas and showcase what can be accomplished through Erasmus+.
