Description of call
"Jean Monnet Actions in other fields of Education and Training: Teacher Training"

Learning about the objectives and the functioning of the European Union is an important part of promoting active citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination. There is a widespread lack of knowledge of the European Union and a lot of disinformation, these in turn increase people disenchantment about the Union and its policies.

Teachers and trainers are keen to engage in opportunities for their own professional development; a significant number of teachers express the need to expand their competences for developing an inclusive classroom atmosphere using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and teaching in multilingual and multicultural classrooms. They also need opportunities for professional expansion regarding the European dimension of teaching at school, in particular on teaching about the European Union in engaging ways.

JEAN MONNET TEACHER TRAININGS

Higher Education Institutions or Teacher Training Institutes/Agencies will organise activities under this action enabling teachers in schools and Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers to develop new skills, to teach and engage on EU matters, thus empowering them through a better understanding of the EU and its functioning.

Teacher training bodies (both for initial teacher education and for continuous professional development for teachers) will strengthen their internal knowledge and skills on teaching about EU matters, and thus, leave teachers better equipped when introducing EU content in their activities.

Objectives of the action

The Jean Monnet Teacher Trainings aim to support schools and VET providers in planning, organising and delivering EU
content in their curricular and extra-curricular activities. The main objectives are to:

  • allow schools and VET providers to build knowledge about the EU among their teaching staff;
  • offer structured training proposals on EU subjects for schools and VET providers, provide content and methodologies for teachers teaching at various levels, from different backgrounds and experience;
  • deliver specific individual or group training courses (modular, residential, blended or online) for teachers interested in the EU and willing to integrate EU subjects in their daily work;
  • foster the confidence of teachers in integrating an EU angle in their daily work.

National Agencies

To bring Erasmus+ as close as possible to the participants and make sure it works well across different countries, the EU works with National Agencies to manage the programme.

The National Agencies are based in Programme Countries and their role involves

  • providing information on Erasmus+
  • selecting projects to be funded
  • monitoring and evaluating Erasmus+
  • supporting applicants and participants
  • working with other National Agencies and the EU
  • promoting Erasmus+
  • sharing success stories and best practices

The list of National Agencies can be found here. Countries not in the list of Programme countries may alternately have a National Erasmus+ Office.

National Erasmus+ Offices

National Erasmus+ Offices (NEOs) assist the European Commission and local authorities in the implementation of Erasmus+ in certain Partner Countries.

These countries are located in the Western Balkans, the Eastern and Southern Mediterranean and Central Asia. Russia also has a National Office.

Providing information on Erasmus+, monitoring and evaluating funded projects, assisting applicants and participants, supporting policy dialogue and maintaining contact with local authorities and EU Delegations are among the responsibilities of the NEOs.

The list of National Erasmus+ Offices is available on the website of the Education, Culture, and Audiovisual Executive Agency.
