Offering your staff a continuing education and training opportunity abroad means contributing to their personal and professional development. It also creates an international network of contacts that adds a new dimension to your institution. Mobility projects involve completing job-shadowing periods, continuing education and training (lectures, seminars, conferences, etc.) or teaching assignments in Europe for the staff of adult education institutions.

Continuing education and training abroad for the staff of adult education institutions

At whom is the project aimed?

The programme is aimed at the staff of adult education institutions, i.e. at teachers, trainers, instructors, educationalists, heads of education institutions, advisers, extra-curricular activity organisers, etc.

At whom is the Programme aimed?

The programme is for the staff of adult education institutions: teachers, trainers, educators, those in charge of educational structures, advisers, organisers of socio-cultural activities, etc.

Who can submit projects?

Adult education institutions based in Switzerland, which have developed and planned a CET project for their staff, can submit a funding application for it up until the stipulated submission deadline.

Individuals cannot submit funding applications.

CET activities relevant to an occupation fall within the “Vocational Education and Training” category.
