The Comenius Programme
Because educational exchanges are not just for adults, the Comenius programme was created. There is no age limit for travelling and discovering other cultures and even younger students can go abroad as part of their education!
Comenius: European school education
The development of exchanges in school education.
The four main types of partnerships are:
In-service training grants:
These allow different stakeholders in education (teachers, career counsellors etc.) to visit a school abroad to observe the educational model, the operation of the school and attend seminars and conferences for a period of 1 day to 6 weeks.
As their names suggest, these partnerships are formed between two schools from two European countries (bilateral partnerships) or three European countries (multilateral partnerships). They are concluded for a period of two years.
This allows newly-qualified and experienced teachers to go abroad for a period of between 3 months and a year to teach a subject.
Multilateral projects and networks:
In the first case, three countries discuss their teaching methods; in the second case, forums are created to allow those involved in the Comenius programme to share their experiences, methods and pedagogy.
Who is it for?
This programme is open to primary and secondary schools.
