Adult Education


Erasmus+ supports teaching assignments at adult education organisations abroad.

If you work in adult education, you can spend time teaching or providing training at another organisation in an Erasmus+ Programme country.

Such experiences and exchanges can help improve language skills and cultural knowledge, as well as providing a new perspective on teaching practices and approaches.


A teaching assignment must last a minimum of 2 days and cannot last more than 2 months. This excludes travelling time.


To teach adult education abroad with Erasmus+, your organisation must apply to participate in a mobility project.

Financial support

EU grants are designed to cover your costs for travel and subsistence during your time abroad, as well as to offer organisational support to participating organisations.

Though EU-funded, grants are managed by the adult education organisations involved and they are responsible for making payments to individuals.

How to apply

You cannot apply for a grant as an individual. Applications must be made by adult education institutions who in turn select candidates for teaching assignments abroad from their staff.

The selection of staff to teach abroad should be fair, transparent and well documented.
