The Grundtvig programme funds a variety of different projects and activities offering a range of opportunities for organisations and individuals in the UK to get involved in European learning. There are many ways you, your organisation and your learners can benefit.
Small Co-operation Projects
Small Co-operation Projects enable organisations to work together with European partners on a shared theme to benefit their staff, learners and volunteers.
Partnerships allow UK organisations to increase knowledge, skills and competences as well as sharing experiences on a specific theme or topic.
Senior Volunteering grants help UK organisations to build collaborative working relationships through the exchange of volunteers over 50.
Individual Mobility focuses on individuals and can help you to develop your skills and experience through a European opportunity.
In-Service Training courses can provide structured training for UK individuals to develop practical skills in another European country.
Visits and Exchanges offer adult educators the chance to improve their skills either through a European job shadow or through participating in a European conference.
Assistantships enable UK individuals to undertake a work placement in a European adult education organisation.
Hosting provides UK organisations the opportunity to invite adult education staff from across Europe to take part in an interactive training activity on literacy issues.
Workshops enable organisations to create and host an interactive training session for a group of European adult educators to develop and share knowledge on the topic of literacy.
Who can get involved?
Any UK organisation or individual involved in non-vocational adult education either formally or informally can participate.
This includes colleges, local authorities, community groups, charities, theatres, museums and prisons to name but a few.
