Education and Training
In view of the end of the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) on 31 December 2013, the Comenius-Grundtvig Training In-Service Training Database will cease to operate as will the individual grants for "In-Service Training" and "Visits and Exchanges" actions of the Programme. As the last application deadline for IST grants under the LLP is 17 September 2013, no new IST training events are added in the Database after this date. The database will be closed on 15 June 2014.
Until that date the database will display only the events starting on 30 April 2014 at the latest, which is the last possible start date for the Comenius and Grundtvig training activities under the LLP.

Welcome to the Comenius and Grundtvig Training Database.

This Training Database contains information about in-service training courses, seminars and conferences offered in Europe for teachers, teacher trainers and non-teaching staff involved in school education (from pre-primary up to upper secondary) or adult education.

All training events are for a European audience and their overall objective is to help participants upgrade their professional skills in the field of education. The events are organised by various training providers who submit their training offers to the National Agencies of the Lifelong Learning Programme, set up in all the participating countries.

Costs of participation in the training events can be supported with Comenius In-Service Training for Teachers and other Educational Staff grants, with Grundtvig In-Service Training for Adult Education Staff grants (for training courses) and Grundtvig Visits & Exchanges for Adult Education Staff grants (for seminars and conferences), for which interested people should apply to their respective National Agencies. Please refer to the website of your National Agency for further information.

Choosing a training event from this Training Database does not guarantee being awarded a Comenius or Grundtvig grant. Persons who wish to apply for a Comenius or Grundtvig grant for a training event which does not appear in this Database are free to do so.


The Comenius and Grundtvig Training Database is maintained by the Directorate General for Education and Culture of the European Commission with the collaboration of the National Agencies of the Lifelong Learning Programme. The European Commission accepts no responsibility or liability with regard to the content of the training events on offer.
