Sweden:Glossary

The Swedish Council for Higher Education (Universitets- och högskolerådet) manages the European and most of the nationally initiated mobility and scholarship programmes, many of which are open to both pupils/students and teachers/academic staff or educational institutions.

Learner Mobility

Erasmus+  provides opportunities for adult education institutions and organisations across Europe to work together to exchange new practices in areas of common interest, develop new approaches, and improve quality. Learners in adult education can take part in mobilities through these strategic partnerships. Institutional cooperation activity can include the following:

  • The exchange of experiences and best practices between adult education organisations. Partner institutions can work together to improve the quality of teaching and learning opportunities. This may include long-term teaching assignments or joint staff training events;
  • The development and testing of new curricula, teaching methods and educational approaches using technologies and guidance tools;

The Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe offers an online and interactive space to exchange, showcase, and promote best practices in adult education.

NORDPLUS Adult aims at developing adult education through cooperation between institutions working in the area of adult education. The programme is administered by The Swedish Council for Higher Education. 

Teacher Mobility

Atlas Conference allows participants to attend conferences outside the EU.  The programme is administered by The Swedish Council for Higher Education (Universitets- och högskolerådet). 

Erasmus+ aims to improve the quality of adult learning across Europe. It provides opportunities for adult learning professionals to learn from each other and develop strategic partnerships. It will focus on common challenges, such as the recognition of skills learnt outside the formal education system. Individuals working in adult education may be able to undertake a work and study period abroad. Such experiences and exchanges can help improve language skills and cultural knowledge, as well as providing a new perspective on teaching practices and approaches. Erasmus+ includes the following options for staff in adult education: 

  • Exchange of staff within adult education organisations, including structured course or training, job shadowing or observations.
  • Cooperation between institutions and organisations to: Exchange experiences and best practice; Develop regional strategies; Develop, test, and validate new curricula; Implement EU policy on adult education.
  • Cooperation with business: Job shadowing; Collaboration on curricula; Training courses and seminars.
  • Platform for Adult Learning in Europe (EPALE): Professionals in adult learning can learn from each other and exchange good practices online.
