We are proud to be coordinating an Erasmus+ project at Erdington Academy.

Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad.

Erasmus+ doesn’t just have opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.

What is Erasmus+? | Erasmus+ (europa.eu)

Our Project: "Career - Adaptability to the labouR markEts with local, national and Eu backgRound"

Why are we coordinating an Erasmus+ project?


Our partnership will assist students across several countries to evaluate their  own abilities and interests for the long run and to help them choose a safe, correct and suitable direction to a successful career, to help them make suitable career choices.

The project centres around the advancement of students’ entrepreneurial  aptitudes and offers them chances to interface with neighbourhood/
local/European foundations or privately owned businesses inside the general, public European labour force. Students will learn about their own marketability to potential employers or clients (marketability), improve their adaptability and adjust to the idea of continuous and consistent learning and adaptable vocation alternatives, build up their versatility to work markets not only at local, but also at national and European  level.

The partnership will give students a chance to improve their knowledge and to gain a more profound comprehension of the social and linguistic variety of the European people group. Subsequently, the project provides a significant setting for them to build up their interpersonal, relational and  communicational abilities in foreign languages, both amid up close and face to face meetings/visits and also by utilizing a wide range of media tools for online correspondence and for the creation of a site that will advertise the projects’ results.

How it works

The project will last two years, which will include five short term student exchanges and several online activities.

Each exchange and activity will support all students in training towards and assist them in choosing their future career, helping raise awareness of the different fields of labour,  skills and training they need to have in order to  secure their career path,

A total number of about 2500 of direct and  indirect participants will be influenced by the partnership.

A total of 112 students will take part in the exchanges, aged 15-18.

A wide range of teachers in all schools across the partnership will have the opportunity to teach students from different cultures  different educational systems across Europe.

Around 300 family members will help with hosting exchange students and raising the awareness of local and national culture. About 460 family members will indirectly be involved during the project.
