Teaching opportunities for staff

With Erasmus+, opportunities are available to spend time teaching at an education institution abroad.

These opportunities are available to both staff working in the education sector and to individuals in businesses invited to share their knowledge of a given sector, subject or issue to students.

Opportunities to teach abroad with Erasmus+ are available in education institutions operating at all levels.
