Use Bottom-Up Approach to Define Your Learning Needs under Erasmus+ Programme Objectives
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.
In this blog you will get some basic information about the Erasmus Accreditation 2021 - 2027. We will highlight the most important insights you have to be aware of in order to submit a high quality application.
