What is Erasmus+?

The Erasmus+ Program is the EU’s grant program in the fields of education, youth, and sports. The European Solidarity Corps (ESC) provides opportunities for volunteering, solidarity, and networking in projects that benefit the community. It supports education, teaching, internships, professional development, and youth activities based on non-formal learning, as well as collaborations between institutions abroad.

The 2024 Erasmus+ Call for Proposals and Program Guide has been published.

Accreditation of School Education Student and Staff Mobility


Erasmus+ Country Centered Application KA120-SCH

School Education Sector Erasmus Accreditation

Erasmus Accreditation is a tool for institutions/organizations in the field of school education that wish to engage in cross-border exchange and cooperation. The granting of Erasmus Accreditation confirms that the applicant institutions/organizations have prepared a plan to implement high-quality mobility activities for their development. When institutions/organizations apply for accreditation, they will be evaluated in terms of suitability, objectives, activities, and management capacity based on the detailed Erasmus Plan they provide. Once they have earned accreditation, their access to grants will be facilitated through a long-term and more straightforward application method.

Types of Accreditation During the 2021-2027 period, there are two different ways to apply for School Education Erasmus Accreditation:

  • Individual Erasmus Accreditation for Institutions/Organizations: This allows institutions/organizations to remain part of the Program to conduct mobility activities following their individual accreditation. During the period of validity of the accreditation, the accredited institution/organization will participate in the Program by only applying for grants to carry out mobility activities.
  • Erasmus Mobility Consortium Accreditation for Institutions/Organizations: A mobility consortium is formed by institutions/organizations from the same country to conduct mobility activities as part of a joint Erasmus Plan. Each mobility consortium is coordinated by a lead institution/organization (an accredited mobility consortium coordinator). This is intended for school education institutions/organizations aiming to bring together a certain number of institutions/organizations with common working areas and needs under the same mobility project.

Who can apply?

Applications for Erasmus Accreditation in the field of School Education can be made by legally recognized institutions/organizations providing formal education in the field of school education, as well as local and regional public authorities, institutions/organizations responsible for coordination, and other institutions/organizations working in the field of school education. The eligibility of institutions/organizations will be determined based on their educational programs and activities.

  • Preschool institutions, primary schools, middle schools,
  • Formal general secondary education institutions, formal vocational secondary education institutions that include a general education curriculum,
  • Provincial/District National Education Directorates, relevant General Directorates of the Ministry of National Education in the field of school education.

Here are some additional key points to consider when dealing with Erasmus+ Accreditation:

Small-Scale Partnerships in School Education

Erasmus+ Country-Specific Application KA210-SCH

Erasmus+ Small-Scale Partnerships in School Education

Under the Key Action 2 Cooperation for Partnerships activity, Small-Scale Partnerships offer institutions/organizations with little or no previous Erasmus+ experience the opportunity to participate in the program according to their institutional capacities and experience. These partnerships, which are shorter in duration and have smaller budgets compared to larger Cooperation Partnerships, provide easier access to the program, especially for first-time applicants.

Who is the target audience of the project?

The target audience for Small-Scale Partnerships projects in School Education includes teachers, school students, professionals, educators, and those working in the field of school education.

Legal entities, whether public or private, from education, teaching, youth, sports, and other socio-economic sectors based in a Program Country can apply.

Who can apply?

  • Applications are institutional.
  • Any public or private institution/organization with legal personality from education, teaching, youth, sport, and other socio-economic sectors based in a Program Country can apply.
  • The application must be submitted by the coordinator institution on behalf of all institutions/organizations within the partnership.
  • All partners must be from Program Countries.

What is the duration of the project and activities?

  • The project duration should be chosen based on the project’s objectives and planned activities and can range from 6 to 24 months.

What are the grant items?

  • The total project budget for small-scale partnerships is selected at the application stage as either 30,000 Euros or 60,000 Euros in a lump-sum model.
  • Click here for the handbook on the Lump Sum Funding Model applied in KA2 Cooperation Partnerships projects (KA210 and KA220), published by the European Commission.

What are the application dates?

Please review our Calls for Proposals and Guides page for the final application dates.

How are pre-application registrations handled?

Applicants wishing to apply for Country-Specific projects under the Erasmus+ Program must have an Organization ID (OID).

  • The Legal Entity Form, which shows the legal status of your institution, must also be uploaded to the system.
  • Those without an EU Login account should first obtain one and then log into the system.

How is the application form filled out?

  • The application form for Small-Scale Partnerships projects in School Education should be filled out using the KA210-SCH code.
  • Applications are made online via the e-forms published on the official website of the European Commission.
  • Simply filling out the application form is not sufficient; all supplementary documents specified in the application form must also be uploaded.
  • The application form can be filled out in any of the program languages allowed on the form.
  • Adherence to the final application date specified in the Program Guide is required.

What else needs to be known?

Adherence to the final application date specified in the Program Guide is necessary. When applying, it is important to consider relevant documents published by the European Commission, including the Handbook on the lump sum funding model.

Small-Scale Partnerships in School Education (KA210) projects are not a continuation of the previous period (2014-2020) Erasmus+ activity, School Education Sector of School Exchange Partnerships (KA229) projects.

It is essential to remember that Small-Scale Partnerships aim to facilitate access to the project for institutions and small-scale actors with little or no prior experience in the Erasmus+ Program.

These partnerships facilitate the sharing of experiences, the mutual transfer of innovative approaches and practices, and aim to improve the quality of education and learning at a European level. The project outputs and results are expected to enhance quality, be transferable, ideally have an interdisciplinary dimension, and be shared at local, regional, national, and international levels.

Who is the target audience of the project?

The target audience for the Collaboration Partnerships in School Education includes school students, professionals, educators, and those working in the field of school education.

All public or private legal entities, active in the fields of education, teaching, youth, and sport, can apply for Collaboration Partnerships projects or participate as partners in an application.

Who can apply?
