Your project has to be relevant to the objectives of the Erasmus+ programme. Description of your project will be relevant if it reflects the following objectives in the field of education and training:
Besides the objectives above always check the priorities of your national agency. National agencies have the right to set country specific priorities that might be important in your context.
Align your objectives of your mobility project with the objectives of the Erasmus+ programme and priorities of your national agency. State clearly where the alignment lies and do not let evaluators to look for alignment because they do not know the project as well as you do and also, they do not have the necessary time for that.
Aligning objectives of your mobility project with the objectives of the Erasmus+ programme includes arguments about the outcomes. Show in your application form how your mobility delivers the learning outcomes below.
Align your objectives of your mobility project with the objectives of the Erasmus+ programme and priorities of your national agency.
Outcomes of KA1 for students, trainees, apprentices and young people:
Outcomes of KA1 for staff, youth workers and professionals:
Outcomes on participating organisations:
Some of the Erasmus+ training providers will give you a list of competencies they deliver with every training, respectively. Their list of competencies might be useful to write in the section of the learning outcomes in the KA1 application form. At least the list can be a good starting point for writing. The good approach is to integrate Erasmus+ course provider competencies list with the list of outcomes stated in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.
Choosing your hosting partner have to reflect:
Therefore, do not write statements like “we chose the hosting partners because of their experience with KA1 courses.” This statement reflects neither Erasmus+ objectives neither your European Development Plan. Better example of the statement is the following: “By our project we want to see practices for reducing early school leaving in other countries. We chose the hosting partner because of their evidence-based results in tackling early school leaving and their proven record of facilitating international cooperation among participants.”
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.
