TCA Description

Themes and goals:

Have you heard about Erasmus+, about international learning experiences and exchange of best practices, but never had the courage to enter this world?

No worries, we've all been there!

This training course is for you if you represent a small organisation in the field of school, VET (vocational education) or adult education, and are addressing inclusive activities or working with vulnerable target groups. 

Topics to be covered:

Information on the Erasmus+ programme in general, and Small-Scale Partnerships (SSP)*, in particular; 

The relevance of an Erasmus+ project in your organization and community; 

How and where to find partners;

Structure of a project;

Elements of project management;

Specific activities within an Erasmus+ project;

Budget- this "scary" topic

Results and impact

Elements of follow-up;

Work on the application form.

Here you can see a brief description of the programme, including short info about SSP.

Expected results:

The aim of the training course is to provide a safe space for inexperienced organizations to find out more about Erasmus+ Programme, to create a suitable framework for interaction with peer professionals, but mostly to give participants the opportunity to receive adapted support in writing a Small-scale partnership project proposal. 

The design of the event includes conceptual clarifications, group work sessions, theoretical presentations, individual work, and also group discussions and/or clarification of specific questions. In this process, all the participants will be accompanied by well-trained trainers with extensive experience in implementing Erasmus+ projects.

!Even more, each participant will receive online one-to-one coaching and feedback sessions after the training course, before the deadlines of submitting projects.

Rationale and background:

In 2021, EC launched the cross-sectoral Strategy for Inclusion and Diversity, based on the Implementation guidelines Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps Inclusion and Diversity Strategy.
In this context, each NA created its own national strategy or action plan, adapted to its own national realities. 

Starting from this, RO NA proposes the LTA addressing inclusion for newcomers from E&T sectors (SE, VET, AE).
The very first series of events will focus on preparing the participants to be able to develop qualitative small-scale partnerships (KA2) projects, addressing newcomers and small and less experienced organizations addressing inclusion and/or working with vulnerable target groups.
In this line, for each event we expect to have on board participants with none or minimum developed project management skills  in order to go  through the process of project cycle management and as well to understand and internalize the inclusiveness of their future Erasmus+ project.
In most cases, each of NA could use TCA - both regular activities and LTAs- as main tool to foster inclusion at national level, in an international context.

The next phases will also tackle Short-term projects for mobilities.


Different national realities within LTA partners.

Planned Activities:

May - August 

National mapping of newcomers or less experienced organizations
Promotion of general aspects about Erasmus+ and the 2 KAs managed by NAs
Promotion of international event to be hosted by RO NA
September 2022
International TC with contact seminar elements on writing small-scale partnerships
3 online support coach and mentoring sessions prior October's deadline. June 2023 

International TC with contact seminar elements on writing small-scale partnerships in Greece

2023 and 2024 similar TCs for Short-term projects for mobilities and small-scale partnerships.

Expected results:

Promotion of Erasmus+ programme as a tool for inclusion among E&T organizations;
Increased quality of future projects coming from small organization with no experience in Erasmus+;
Providing the space and context for networking between participants to share ideas and inclusive approaches, to find answers and solutions to the same needs, to find partners for future initiatives and projects.
