Call for proposals 2021 – Erasmus+ - Jean Monnet Actions in other fields of Education and Training: Teacher Training ERASMUS-JMO-2021-OFET-TT Closed!

Objectives

The Jean Monnet Teacher Trainings aim to support schools and VET providers in planning, organising and delivering EU content in their curricular and extra-curricular activities. The main objectives are to:

  • allow schools and VET providers to build knowledge about the EU among their teaching staff;
  • offer structured training proposals on EU subjects for schools and VET providers, provide content and methodologies for teachers teaching at various levels, from different backgrounds and experience;
  • deliver specific individual or group training courses (modular, residential, blended or online) for teachers interested in the EU and willing to integrate EU subjects in their daily work;
  • foster the confidence of teachers in integrating an EU angle in their daily work.

Actions

Jean Monnet actions in other fields of education and training
Learning about the objectives and the functioning of the European Union is an important part of promoting active citizenship and the common values of freedom, tolerance and non-discrimination. There is a widespread lack of knowledge of the European Union and a lot of disinformation, these in turn increase people disenchantment about the Union and its policies. Teachers and trainers are keen to engage in opportunities for their own professional development; a significant number of teachers express the need to expand their competences for developing an inclusive classroom atmosphere using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), and teaching in multilingual and multicultural classrooms. They also need opportunities for professional expansion regarding the European dimension of teaching at school, in particular on teaching about the European Union in engaging ways. The overall objective is to promote a better understanding, both in general education and vocational training (ISCED 1 – 4), of the European Union and the functioning of its Institutions.
 
Jean Monnet teacher trainings
 Higher Education Institutions or Teacher Training Institutes/Agencies will organise activities under this action enabling teachers in schools and Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers to develop new skills, to teach and engage on EU matters, thus empowering them through a better understanding of the EU and its functioning. Teacher training bodies (both for initial teacher education and for continuous professional development for teachers) will strengthen their internal knowledge and skills on teaching about EU matters, and thus, leave teachers better equipped when introducing EU content in their activities. Teacher Training activities will support educational staff in schools and VET providers (ISCED 1 – 4).
