Impact of Erasmus+ Traineeships on Higher Education

Summary of TCA outcomes

The Training and Cooperation Activity (TCA) focused on the "Impact of Erasmus+ Traineeships on Higher Education" within the 2021/2027 program period. It convened experienced Erasmus+ coordinators to explore the essence of high-quality traineeships, delving into perspectives from students, sending institutions, and host organizations. With 54 participants from 19 countries, moderated by Ms. Eliza Popper, the event spanned 3 days and 2 nights.

The agenda included a mix of activities—starting with ice-breaking sessions and a cocktail dinner, followed by keynote speeches and presentations. These sessions covered the significance of Erasmus+ Traineeships in Higher Education within the European Year of skills, emphasizing enriching student mobility experiences.

Interactive sessions comprised nine workshops across three focal areas:

  1. Ιmproving the quality of Erasmus+ traineeships
  2. Addressing Recognition, KA171, and Inclusion in Erasmus+ traineeships
  3. Exploring the nexus between Erasmus+ traineeships and employability
