Opportunities for school development through international exchange
How can Erasmus+ and the Nordplus programme support school development between countries in Europe? An increased budget for the school sector from the European Commission will make it possible for your organisation to work with continuous professional development and to cooperate on school development and innovation. The programmes enable exchanges between countries and different fields of education in Europe. There are several possibilities for exchanges such as job shadowing, course opportunities, co-operation and development of pedagogical ideas and methods, exchange of good practices and even the involvement of pupils and students in transnational activities.
