What is Erasmus+ funding?
|IMPACT OF THE CORONAVIRUS ON ERASMUS+ FUNDED MOBILITY PROGRAMMES|
Due to the uncertainty affecting transport, accommodation, social distancing measures and possible quarantine restrictions, most Erasmus+ funded mobility programmes are not running this summer.
The European Commission has announced that some physical mobility programmes can be replaced by "virtual mobility" programmes in justified cases. In other cases, some funding might be granted as "organisational support" for online courses, even though course fees might not be covered. Each case will be assessed individually by their National Agency.
NILE has learnt that eligible online programmes must be fully accredited and that the teachers’ learning should be recognised by such course providers. At this stage we are therefore confident NILE Online courses, accredited by AQUEDUTO, are eligible for Erasmus+ funding this year in cases where traditional mobility programmes are not possible, and we strongly encourage you to contact your National Agency for more information.
We are of course very happy to pre-register you for a face-to-face programme in Norwich in 2021 should your funding be deferred to include physical mobility.

Brexit update February 2020: The UK left the European Union on January 31st 2020. The Withdrawal Agreement between the EU and the UK foresees that the UK will continue to participate in the current 2014-2020 EU programmes, including Erasmus+, as if the UK was an EU Member State until the closure of the programmes. The possible participation of the UK in future programmes after 2020 will depend on the outcome of the overall negotiations on the future relationship between the two parties.
On this basis, we continue to pre-register applicants for our 2020 courses, as in previous years. As with all advice on Erasmus+, please check with your National Agency, as some have issued separate policies with regard to Brexit. More infomation from our industry association English UK can be found here.
We will update this page as soon as we get further advice from the industry association, English UK, and the government.

Erasmus+ is the new EU funding programme for education, training, youth and sport. It replaces the previous programmes such as Comenius, Grundtvig and Erasmus.
The programme is open to teachers, trainers and students from all EU Member States as well as Iceland, Turkey, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Liechtenstein, Norway.
You must apply under ‘Key Action 1 – Learning Mobility of Individuals’.
Under Erasmus+ only organisations can apply. Your school/college/institution is an organisation, so you can apply through your school. The training you apply for has to fit into your School/European Development Plan.
Each school should have a development plan (sometimes called a ‘school development plan,’ sometimes a ‘European development plan’).
This is a document which outlines the training and professional development taking place in your school, and how it fits with European objectives. Your school can have a development plan for one or two years.
The final funding application should be for the total amount necessary for all staff training. If the funding is awarded, you and your school/organisation can then choose which NILE course(s) you would like to participate in.
Your school counts as an organisation, and you can apply through your school. Before your school/organisation can apply for funding, a nominated person will need to register the school/organisation and get an Organisation ID.
In previous years, organisations have registered for a PIC number. If your school/organisation already has a PIC number, they will automatically have been assigned an Organisation ID. You can search for your ID through the above link.
For more information, the National Agency in the UK has provided a guide to completing this process.
All NILE's teachers' courses in Norwich, including MA modules, are eligible for funding under the Erasmus+ programme.
Go to the Face-to-face Courses page for detailed information, including full descriptions, for all 2020 courses.
It will probably be the head of the school, or whoever is responsible for training and development.
Your school must apply for the total amount needed to cover all training as identified in the European Development plan. The money will cover course fees, travel costs and living and accommodation expenses while abroad.
The deadline for 2020 is February 5th. However, some countries have more than one call per year. Please check with your National Agency.
