How to apply for Erasmus+ Funding for your course



EU funding for your course is available through Erasmus+ and you now need to apply via your school / college / institution rather than as an individual. 



Pilgrims Teacher Training courses this summer will be delivered in our school in Segovia, in Spain. You can apply through your school / college / institution to get Erasmus+ funding for your course. You can find out more about Erasmus+ through your national agency.


All the national agency websites are listed here -  Erasmus+ National Agencies



What is Erasmus+?

Erasmus+ replaces all previous actions by the EU such as Comenius, Grundtvig , Leonardo and many more.

There is now much more funding available for training teachers, and it is vital you make your head of school aware of this opportunity as you will have to apply through your school.

You should apply through Erasmus + Action 1

We have already heard of schools that have received extra funding for applying for Erasmus+  grants for their teachers - so it is good for your school – as well as you!

Who can apply?

Erasmus+ is available to a wide range of organisations across all sectors of education and training in the EU member and EFTA states (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland).

Any public or private organisation actively involved in these areas can now apply for funding. That means if you are a teacher in a private school - as long as your school applies, so can you!

When is the deadline?

We recommend you start the process of application with your school and apply for your Pilgrims course as soon as you have spoken to your school - contact after you are sure your school is prepared to support your application.

You can apply for your course now, and we will hold your place on the course until you have confirmed your funding application has been successful. 

What to do next

  1. Read the Erasmus+ information through the links we have given you below and arrange a meeting with the person responsible in your school, university, college or organisation - we recommend you arrange this now!
