about Erasmus +

The Erasmus+ programme today is designed to foster a skilled and dynamic work force within the European Union.

It allows students in vocational education and training to undertake temporary transnational training/work placements over a 3 week period, gaining an understanding of different cultures, languages and work practices.

It allows organisations to work with European partners, in order to exchange practices and increase expertise of students whilst abroad. Essentially it is a European Funded programme that allows students in further education to travel to and work in a European country in order to improve and develop individual's personal, social and professional skills.

The demand for Erasmus+ projects has increased in Moate Business College over the last few years with students benefiting from placements in Spain, Italy and Portugal. This year new projects will also be starting in Romania.

Further details regarding Erasmus+ projects can be found on the official Erasmus+ website
