How to apply for Erasmus plus funding

EU Erasmus+ Funding for Teachers of English

All the teachers' courses at ELC are eligible for EU Erasmus+ funding under the Erasmus+ Programme (Key Action 1 - Mobility of Individuals). Our PIC code is 943968790 and OID number is E10150503. 

In recent years, ELC has trained around 300 overseas teachers a year, many of whom received funding from the EU through the Lifelong Learning Programme. In the past teachers applied individually for financial support under Grundtvig or Comenius. The system then changed and under Erasmus+, schools or organisations must apply for funding on behalf of their staff.

Teachers from the following countries are eligible for EU Erasmus+ funding:

  • any EU country
  • Liechtenstein
  • Norway
  • Turkey
  • Macedonia
  • Swizterland
  • Iceland

You need to be working for a school, college or educational institution (or private school in some countries)
