Erasmus+ grant for mobility and partnerships in secondary vocational education

ORANJESTAD - The European Union and Kingdom Relations Office (BEUK) informs that the European Union's Erasmus+ Program offers various opportunities for students and education professionals at different levels - through grant funding - to connect with other European institutions, exchange knowledge and ideas, and collaborate with international organizations and policymakers.

The opportunities for Secondary Vocational Education are divided into several Key Actions.

Erasmus +The first (KA1), the Mobility Projects, offers educational professionals and students the opportunity to gain new knowledge and skills abroad. The second (KA2), Partnerships, serves to strengthen secondary vocational education through small- and large-scale collaborations between institutions and organizations in other countries. The themes of inclusion, future-oriented, digital and green are central to this.  The program is particularly aimed at:

  • Students (who are enrolled in an MBO school and have graduated from high school at least 12 months ago);
  • staff of mbo-schools;
  • teachers;
  • trainers at mbo-schools;
  • participating organizations.

However, the application for an Erasmus+ grant can only be made by a legal person (legal entity).

In support, the EU has published an Erasmus+ Programme Guide, which provides the essential information about the program and a manageable list of opportunities that support it.  It is important before you apply to check the grant application roadmap:
