Exchange and mobility contribute to personal, professional and organisational development. Trainers, managers and counsellors from adult education institutions can take advantage of the funding programmes.
Under the Swiss Programme for Erasmus+, adult education is defined as non-formal, non-vocational training that is aimed at adults. Vocational training courses, further training courses that lead to a federally-recognised qualification and training for teachers in the field of formal education fall under the categories vocational education and training, school education and higher education.
Funding programmes in adult education aim to strengthen entire educational institutions and ultimately the Swiss education system by opening up new horizons, providing access to training courses abroad and promoting inspiration, exchange and expertise of individual employees.
Adult education teachers from all over Europe can benefit from the exchange of experience, work together to develop new educational tools, and learn about new teaching and training methods. The opportunity to undergo further training and the fresh impetus this generates inspire staff and improve their motivation and work quality in the long term.
Staff from schools or other organisations working in school education receive support to visit future partner organisations before submitting a project, establish contacts for joint projects and prepare projects with partners. More information is available here.
