[ERASMUS+] Erasmus+ Teacher Academies - Call for Proposals 2022

Erasmus+ is the European Union's programme for education, training, youth and sport in Europe. One of the new flagship actions of the 2021-2027 Erasmus+-programme concerns the Erasmus+ Teacher Academies. The overall objective of this action is to create European partnerships of teacher education and training providers to set up Erasmus+ Teacher Academies that will develop a European and international outlook in teacher education. These Academies will embrace multilingualism and cultural diversity, develop teacher education in line with the EU's priorities in education policy and contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the European Education Area. 

The Erasmus+ Teacher Academies will meet the following objectives:

  • Contribute to the improvement of teacher education policies and practices in Europe by creating networks and communities of practice on teacher education.
  • Enhance the European dimension and internationalisation of teacher education through innovative and practical collaboration with teacher educators and teachers in other European countries and by sharing experiences for the further development of teacher education in Europe.
  • Develop and test jointly different models of mobility (virtual, physical and blended) in initial teacher education and as part of teachers’ continuous professional development in order to enhance the quality and number of mobility as well as to make mobility an integral part of teacher education provision in Europe.
  • Develop sustainable collaboration between teacher education providers with an impact to the quality of teacher education in Europe and with a view to inform teacher education polices at European and national levels.

Applications should be submitted to the European Education Culture and Executive Agency (EACEA) via the Funding & Tender Opportunities Portal (F&TOP). The application forms are available via the F&TOP.
