Erasmus+ is the EU programme for education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. Education, training, youth and sport can make a major contribution to help tackle socio-economic changes, the key challenges that Europe will be facing until the end of the decade and to support the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion. Many of the initiatives are based on opportunities to help teachers, lecturers and non-academic staff develop their skills in schools, universities and colleges around Europe – through job shadowing, teaching and training activities.
