Hungary:Glossary

Erasmus+ is the programme of the European Union for education, training, youth and sport for the period of 2014-2020. Education, training, youth affairs and sport may significantly contribute to tackling social and economic changes and the other major challenges Europe faces as well as to the implementation of the Europe 2020 Strategy focusing on growth, employment, social equity and inclusion. The aim of the Erasmus+ is to support the participating countries in the efficient use of European talent and social capital and reinforce the principle of lifelong learning in education, training and youth affairs by supporting formal, non-formal and informal learning.

The programme also supports vocational training and adult training mobility, the latter being very low in Hungary.

The aim of measure Erasmus+ KA1 is to support the development of learner competences (knowledge, skills and attitudes) in order to encourage personal development, improve employability and chances at the European labour market.

The staff mobility measure aims at supporting the professional development of staff working in education or training in order to improve and modernise teaching, training and youth work.

The programme supports the apprenticeship training as well as training at a vocational school of pupils of vocational education and training. In case of staff, it supports education/training activities undertaken by them as well as training, work experience or job shadowing.

Learner Mobility

The aim of the Erasmus+ mobility projects is to support participants in developing their (key) competences, personality and employability. As a result of mobility, foreign language competences and intercultural awareness improve and a more active social and European identity is formed. Learner mobility is only implemented in vocational education and training.

The mobility programme of vocational education (previously called Leonardo da Vinci) remains to be popular in vocational education and training: both the range of eligible applicants and the available funding have been increasing year by year. By 2014 the funding had been increased by 22%. Not only the number of grants awarded but also the average amount granted per person increased. Of all forms of grant, pupil mobility is the most popular. In 2014 107 vocational schools were supported to the amount of 6,060,621 Euros. This amount provides funding for 2826 participants, the majority of whom are pupils (2290).

Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, France and Austria continue to be the most popular destinations, while the most popular branches are catering, engineering and agriculture. 

Teacher and Trainer Mobility

The aim of the Erasmus+ mobility projects is to support the professional development of staff working in education and training and in this way promote the development and modernisation of the sector. At school level, mobility increases the capacity of the school, encourages formal and non-formal education and learning, supports the recognition of competences acquired abroad and provide opportunities for cooperation between vocational education and businesses.

The mobility programme of vocational education (previously called Leonardo da Vinci) remains to be popular in vocational education and training: both the range of eligible applicants and the available funding have been increasing year by year. Probably because of the simplification of application procedures, the number of teachers participating in the programme increased by 80% - in 2014 more than 500 teachers participated in various mobility programmes. In 2014 107 schools received a grant amounting to a total of 6 million Euros.

The (Leonardo) mobility certificate launched in 2009 continues to exist in the new programme period. It enables eligible schools to get EU funding in a simplified procedure and predictable way for the implementation of their internationalisation strategies. The new programme is expected to grant the majority of funding to applicants that plan the internationalisation of their schools consciously, as part of their strategy, and international contacts, mobility partnerships, joint projects and other international activities become an integral part of their functioning. Conscious planning ensures a competitive advantage for them: they will be able to make better use of international cooperation and synergies between projects, and they feed it into their curricula and operation.   

The Erasmus+ programme also supports the adult learning sector, including the significant share of expert mobility. This measure supports both education/training activities whereby the staff of adult training providers undertake training/teaching in a partner institution abroad and the professional development (training course, job shadowing, study visits, school visits) of staff working in adult education and training.

The funding available and the number of participants doubled in the past few years - in 2014 the programme had more than 100 participants.
