What is Erasmus+ ?

Erasmus+ is a new EU funding programme for education, training, youth and sport between 2014-2020. It aims to boost skills and employability as well as modernise education, training, and youth work across Europe. It has a budget of approximately 14.7 billion euros across Europe and will, over the next seven years, provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad. It will also support transnational partnerships between education, training and youth organisations, as well as support grassroots sport projects.

In April 2014 Meadowhead applied to this new EU funding stream to take part in 3 exciting new International projects:

 

Key action 1 – STEM Staff work shadowing study in Germany/Spain.
 

Key action 2 – ‘Passport to your future’ employability skills project for students aged 14+.
 

Key action 2 – CEWE ‘Commuting across Europe for Work experience’ for A Level linguists.

 

In September we were delighted to hear that all 3 project bids had been successful!

We are delighted to be featured in the British Council's e-Twinning newsletter for October 2015 as a Schools Case Study!  You can read the article here:  https://www.erasmusplus.org.uk/casestudy/schools-case-study-meadowhead-school-academy-trust

We also featured as an exemplar school in one of the KA2 presentations at the Erasmus Conference in Edinburgh at the end of September 2015
