Erasmus + offers teachers, school staff and adult education staff the chance to participate in a mobility for training programme. It is a summer training opportunity abroad to exchange ideas with European colleagues by attending courses or sharing experiences and didactic practices.

In the field of school education, the Agency received 662 applications, after formal and qualitative selection.

The most active regions are Campania, Sicily and Puglia.
