As the 5th of February deadline to submit your 2020 Erasmus+ projects is getting closer EprojectConsult is inviting all the Partners around Europe to consider the following tips in order to maximise their chances for winning a grant.
Our offices in Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto and Catania could serve as a focal point and a reference to boost your chances to receive Erasmus+ funding.
As partner we undertake all necessary activities for implementing Erasmus+ projects: internship, training courses, accommodation, monitoring, dissemination, evaluation and organization of a cultural programme.
If you need any help keep in mind that we can offer an adequate support for writing the application: analysing the goal of the projects, the feasibility according to the country of destination. We are available before the deadline of your project, answering through skype and e-mails, providing any type of support document, such as Letter of Intention, draft program of the internship, dissemination plan, etc.
To get you closer we have a dedicated chat service to which you can write from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 6 pm.

EProjectConsult and A Rocca NGO are ready to provide their support and to establish a long-term cooperation in the frame of the KA1 and KA2 mobility programs.
Here are some tips that would enhance your Erasmus + application writing experience:
How to make a good mobility project?
A good KA1 mobility project should be based on the real educational needs of the school and staff and must be relevant to the action objectives and priorities of the school and the priorities of the Erasmus + Programme.
To build a quality project, it is useful to understand how the project can be assessed both on a formal and qualitative level.
The activities foreseen by a KA1 project are also an opportunity for teachers to acquire skills in managing the needs of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. As indicated in the 2020 Program Guide, the development of digital competences and the transformation towards digital classrooms is high among the priorities. Still, the situation of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, creates a need for projects focused on the updating of teachers in areas such as the training of refugee children, intercultural classes, teaching to pupils in their second language, tolerance and diversity in the classroom.
Search for similar projects and build on the experience and results already developed with Erasmus + funding. It is very useful to compare what has already been achieved under Key Action 1, to draw inspiration from the proposals implemented by other schools throughout Europe. For this you could use the online platforms developed by the European Commission.
- Before submitting your application, it may be useful to create a project team within the school to define the activities, the staff involved, the management modalities of the whole project in all its phases: preparation, mobility and follow-up during the project.
- It is important to include the project in a European School Development Plan. The mobility project will have a greater impact on the quality of teaching and learning if properly integrated into the institution’s strategic development.
- Indicate how staff mobility fits into a broader plan of the institution
- Project activities should be relevant to both individuals and the school as a whole
- Choose the type of training activity based on what is most functional to the school: course, job shadowing, teaching activities, training, internship for student
Pay attention to
- Thematic, objectives and priorities of the action
- Preparation for training activity
- European added value
- Expected results
- Expected impact on the Institute
- Evaluation method
- Dissemination of results
And in particular for Job-shadowing activities and for Teaching / Training Assignment
- the Daily activity program
- the Mobility Agreement
The selection of mobility participants is an important phase of the project. We suggest you:
- inform the staff of the Erasmus + opportunities
- invite staff to communicate any interest in time
- establish clear, simple and coherent criteria, integrated with the more general criteria of the mobility project
- document each phase of the selection process
- create an evaluation commission.
It is useful to prepare the staff to manage the project in all its phases:
- submission of the application
- management of the selection of candidates for mobility
- communications with the National Agency
- communications with the international Partner
- management of financial practices
