This training course complies with the Quality standards for courses which can be funded through Erasmus+ Key Action 1 (learning mobility of individuals). Institutions in possession of such Erasmus+ grants may use their funding to cover the participation fee for the training course. 

What is the training about?

Educational institutions should be challenged to improve certain skills necessary in the process of facilitating mobility of both learner and educators that would foster international cooperation in the academic system.

As the diversity of the world is represented within our classrooms, and in society at large, it is crucial to develop intercultural skills through various activities both inside and outside the institutions. This specific training aims to help teachers and educational staff reflect on their own intercultural awareness and be able to empower both pupils and institutions with intercultural mentality. Participants will also have a chance to learn how to ease the integration of an exchange pupil into a new environment.

What are the training objectives?
  • Improve intercultural awareness and competence;
  • Learn to embed intercultural competence within curricula and conduct activities in partnerships with non-profit organisations;
  • Discover more about possible mobility opportunities for schools;
  • Exchange good practices with teachers from all over Europe.
Who’s the training aimed at?
  • Teachers from secondary schools;
  • School counsellors/Career advisors;
  • Any educational staff working within intercultural learning and/or learning mobility.
