Staff Mobility (Key Action 1)
Erasmus+ Key Action 1 is an exchange program for lecturers, administrative staff and students, initiated by the European Union, with the aim of improving the quality of higher education institutions (HEIs) in and outside Europe. Opportunities are provided for academic and administrative staff of higher education institutions to undertake a teaching (academic staff only), learning and/or professional experience in another country. This program encompasses between 5 days to 2 months and must include mandatory 8 teaching hours per week for teaching staff. Staff training mobility supports the professional development of higher education institution teaching and non-teaching staff in the form of training events abroad (excluding conferences) and job shadowing/observation periods/training at a partner HEI, or at another relevant organisation abroad.
This program aimed at contributing to staff professional development, their teaching methods and international ties. It also provides opportunities for staff to improve the quality of their teaching and increase their local and international visibility.
