Would you like to get an insight into teaching methods at schools abroad? Or does teaching for a certain period of time at a partner school in Europe yourself, exchanging ideas and experiences with other school heads appeal to you? How about developing an exchange project for school pupils together with schools in Europe?


Within the framework of the Swiss Programme for Erasmus+, Movetia supports projects that contribute to international networking and quality development in the Swiss education system. Swiss schools, from nursery through to secondary school, can be part of a network with partner schools across Europe, facilitate continuing education and training in Europe for their teachers and let their pupils participate in valuable exchange experiences with others of the same age in different European countries. In school education, various kinds of projects are supported financially within the framework of the Swiss Programme for Erasmus+:

  • Mobility projects facilitate continuing education and training, job-shadowing (observation periods) and teaching activities in other European countries for teachers and other school staff.
  • School partnerships enable several European school classes to work together on a project and to visit each other.
  • Strategic partnerships facilitate transnational collaboration of (educational) institutions to promote and further quality and innovation in school education in Europe.

In addition to the funding programme for European exchange projects, Movetia also supports international school exchange projects between Swiss schools and schools outside of Europe. As of late autumn 2019, schools can apply for the 2020 round of calls for proposals of the Swiss Programme for Erasmus+ and of the international school exchange programmes. The calls for projects and the submission deadlines are published on the Movetia website.
