In this blog you will find a procedure how to find out learning needs of your school using bottom-up approach. It will help you justifying your arguments in the Erasmus Accreditation application.
Firstly, I will tell what NOT TO DO. Do not try to show your school’s learning needs in a different light because you want to get the Erasmus+ grant or accreditation. It seems to be a good strategy on a short run but on a long-run you will face difficulties with teachers’ motivation because they will not see the project as relevant to their needs. Bottom-up approach on the other hand, in which you give the voice to all teachers at your school to express their learning needs, is a good starting point for drafting your Internationalization Strategy and Erasmus Plan. Both documents are essential part of the Erasmus Accreditation application.
Throughout the years of working as Erasmus+ KA1 course provider we gained a clear picture of how does a high quality KA1 application form looks like. We are happy to share our insights in order to increase the quality of international mobility projects in the field of teacher training.
