Call details

This action supports providers of vocational education and training (VET) and other organisations active in the field of VET that want to organise learning mobility activities for VET learners and staff. A wide range of activities are supported, including job shadowing and professional development courses for staff, traineeships and long-term placements (ErasmusPro), invited experts, and other activities as explained below. The participating organisations should actively promote inclusion and diversity, environmental sustainability and digital education through their activities: by using the specific funding opportunities provided by the Programme for these purposes, by raising awareness among their participants, by sharing best practices, and by choosing appropriate design for their activities.  

Short-term projects for mobility of learners and staff provide applicant organisations with an opportunity to organise various mobility activities over a period of six to eighteen months. Short-term projects are the best choice for organisations trying Erasmus+ for the first time, or for those that wish to organise only a limited number of activities.

Activities to be funded under this topic

All types of activities for vocational education and training. For a detailed list of activities and rules, see section ’Activities’ on page 86 of the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.

Eligibility

The following organisations are eligible to apply:

  • Organisations providing initial or continuing vocational education and training  
  • Local and regional public authorities, coordination bodies and other organisations with a role in the field of vocational education and training  
  • Companies and other public or private organisations hosting, training or otherwise working with learners and apprentices in vocational education and training.  

However, organisations holding an Erasmus accreditation in vocational education and training cannot apply for short-term projects.

Eligible countries

Applicant organisations must be established in an EU Member State or in a third country associated to the Programme. See section on eligible countries in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide

An application for a short-term project can include a maximum of 30 participants in mobility activities.

Budget

The quality of the applicant’s Erasmus Plan has been assessed at the accreditation application stage and therefore no qualitative assessment will take place at budget allocation stage. Any eligible grant application will receive funding.  

The awarded grant amount will depend on a number of elements:  

  • the total budget available for allocation to accredited applicants
  • the requested activities
  • the basic and maximum grant
  • the following allocation criteria: financial performance, qualitative performance, policy priorities, and geographical balance (if applied by the National Agency)  

For funding allocation details, see page 95 of the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.

Project duration

From 6 to 18 months.
