Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. It runs for seven years,
from 2014 to 2020, with organisations invited to apply for funding each year to undertake creative and worthwhile
activities, such as transnational study, training and volunteering. Funding is available to applicants from Programme
Countries - members of the European Union - and Partner Countries - countries outside the European Union - to
improve education, training, youth and sport practice and policy.

How Crisalus Partners in Erasmus +
Erasmus+ aims to modernise education, training and youth work across Europe. It is open to education, training,
youth and sport organisations across all sectors of lifelong learning, including school education, further and higher
education, adult education and the youth sector. It offers exciting opportunities for participants from Programme
Countries and Partner Countries to study, work, volunteer, teach and train across European borders.
Preconditioning is done online before realizing mobility through virtual classrooms. Coursework that combines
theoretical with practical exercises that take place once the group arrives to their destination. In most cases, the group's
destination is Barcelona, where Global Skills Network is headquartered, but can take place in other cities as well.
Pre-mobility and in-country training are complemented with professional visits to organizations, businesses or
government entities working in the field or to training centers, schools, universities or research centers.
A sample project can be found at www.ErasmusActions.org at Global Skills Network.

Since 2003, Global Skills Network has participated in the transnational mobility projects sponsored by the
European Commission, first under Leonardo da Vinci, Gruntdvig and Comenius and now under Erasmus Plus.
Their strength lies in being able to organize, monitor and evaluate training projects in vocational training and
teacher education. They apply those same responsibilities to internships and work experience projects where
students can gain skills in working environments that reflect real-world businesses, governments and organizations.
The hybrid learning projects sponsored by Global Skills Network consists of pre-mobility training, in-country training
and professional visits around subjects selected by their partners in the KA1 Actions. Examples of subject matters
for training include:
