Staff

 

Mobility can be undertaken by staff at a Higher Education or HE/FE Institution which holds an Erasmus+ University Charter (EUC) to another HEI which holds an EUC and with which their institution has an Inter-institutional Agreement.

Erasmus+ offers a great opportunity for academic and administrative staff to teach or work elsewhere in one of the 32 other participating countries in Europe. You can get to know first-hand the workings of another European educational system, learn new ideas and discover best practices to take back to UK. So don’t let the students be the only ones to benefit! Develop your international network and enhance your language skills too. To be eligible you must work at a Higher Education Institution that holds an Erasmus+ University Charter.

​Non Teaching Staff

Staff training is an option for non-teaching staff who want to take part in the Erasmus+ programme. This is an option if you are going to another HEI which holds an EUC. Within the broad objectives of staff training, it encompasses things such as short secondments, job-shadowing and study visits. 

The duration of non teaching staff mobility must be for a period of two working days.  Before the mobility commences staff must complete British Council Mobility and Grant Agreement forms and a Cardiff Met overseas travel form.  Prior to departure a full training programme must be agreed formally by the home and host HEI.

There must be documentary evidence of the duration of the mobility period.  At the end of each training period abroad the host must confirm the duration of stay.

All travel and hotel bookings will be made by the International Office.
