Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train and gain experience abroad. Erasmus+ supports training activities abroad for professionals involved in pre-primary, primary and secondary school education. Among others, there are opportunities of attending structured courses abroad, like the ones Olympus is offering.
Eligible countries for ERASMUS+ funding are the 28 EU member States, plus Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Turkey and FYROM. Please note that since the course is taking place in Greece, participants from Greece are not eligible to apply for an ERASMUS+ grant to attend it (you must travel to another country).
Teachers and school leaders who are interested in attending a course offered by Olympus can apply to their National Agencies for ERASMUS+ funding, under Key Action 1, "Individual mobility". Please, keep in mind that you can’t apply to your National Agency individually but the school or organization you work for needs to submit an application. So, your school needs to apply for you, as well as for any other of your colleagues. Your school will need to apply to your country’s National Agency, who is also the one who will evaluate the proposal. Therefore, your National Agency is also a very good point to start for more information. Below you can find the link to all National Agencies:
