The Erasmus+ Programme offers exciting opportunities for participants to study, work, volunteer, teach and train abroad in Europe.
Work placements are compatible with learners’ qualifications in Wales and offer life-changing experiences to young people who may never have considered employment opportunities beyond Wales. FE lecturers, leaders and support staff also take part in CPD opportunities where there is the chance to share ideas and good practice from abroad to support strategic-level improvements to Wales’ vocational education and training structures.
Wales' colleges recognise that good practice and new ideas exist elsewhere and continue to explore different approaches and ideas as well as establishing new partnerships with their counterparts in Europe.
ColegauCymru is proud to lead on providing development opportunities for learners and staff through Erasmus+ funding. We also work as a voice for colleges as we sit on the Erasmus+ Country Advisory Group and the Sector Consultative Group.
Here through our Expanding horizons: The benefits of the Erasmus+ Programme to further education institutions in Wales briefing, we take a look at the benefits this fantastic programme brings to both learners and staff alike. We also take a closer look at what the future holds for the programme in an uncertain post-Brexit world.
