It was initated by the ESAA Policy Working Group with the idea to give 15 trainees a deeper understanding of Erasmus+, the new programme for Education, Training, Youth, and Sport.
Six representatives of the European Commission accompanied the event as well as an intercultural trainer from ICUnet.AG, the service provider. The aim of the event was to give information to active members about Erasmus+ and help them understand the best ways of how to pass this information to prospective students, universities, alumni, national agencies and potential employers.
In interactive sessions the trainees were provided with details about the credit and degree mobility with the focus on the main benefits and massages for the students. And they learned practically how to engage members, to show how mobility affects excellent degrees, employability and cultural competences.
The freshly graduated Erasmus+ experts will be trainers at pre-departure events, education fairs as well as at the ESAA kick-off event.
