1 Erasmus+ The EU programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport

2 Erasmus+: Why a new approach? Education, training and youth: a changing landscape  Deep economic crisis and high youth unemployment  Vacancies exist, but skills gaps mean low employability of graduates  Growing requirement for high skilled jobs  Global competition for talent: internationalisation of education  Extraordinary broadening of learning supply and potential of ICT  Complementarity between formal, informal and non-formal learning  Need for closer links with world of work => New approach necessary

3 Erasmus+: a new approach We need:  Closer links between programme and policy objectives  More synergies and interaction between formal, informal and non-formal learning  More cross-sectoral partnerships with world of work  Stronger focus on EU added value

4 What's new? (1) A single integrated programme  Main areas:  School education  Higher Education  Vocational education and training (VET)  Adult Education  Youth  Bringing 7 existing programmes into a single coherent framework: KA1, KA2 o KA3, Jean Monnet  Seeking to achieve greater systemic impact

5 What's new? (2) Substantial simplifications  Fewer calls and large reduction in number of actions  More user-friendly programme, easier to navigate  Simplified financial management. Substantial budget increase  40% increase, benefiting all sectors  Additional funding from external action instruments to support  International dimension of higher education

6 Erasmus+

7 3 main types of Key Action Learning mobility of individuals (KA1) Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practices (KA2) Support for policy reform (KA3) Mobility: staff, students, vocational education and training students Student loan guarantee Joint Master’s degrees Mobility for higher education for EU and non-EU beneficiaries Volunteering and youth exchanges Strategic partnerships Knowledge Alliances & Sector Skills Alliances IT-Platforms including e- Twinning Cooperation with third countries and focus on neighbouring countries Open method of coordination Prospective initiatives EU recognition tools Dissemination & exploitation Policy dialogue with stakeholders, third countries and international organisations
