What's so special about our
20 years of experience in training adults
Our innovative methodologies and professional team
A UNESCO World Heritage
Cultural heritage, an amazing range of climates and terrains, including Mediterranean beaches and rolling vineyards. Porto charms every citizen and newcomer with beautiful scenery, an exciting architectural clash of Old and New, and affordable lifestyle. Porto is renowned for its wine production, including, not only its world-class and famous port wines, but also many international award winners red and white wines, from the breathtaking Douro Valley - a UNESCO World Heritage. These are just a short list of the advantages for learners in this city, but enough to make Porto part of the main European tourist itineraries (considered the best European destination).
Besides specific professional issues, our courses also contain the development and use of soft skills which intend to facilitate interdisciplinary learning and experimentation supported by contemporary technologies. They are tailored to adjust not only the teacher’s needs, but also the non-teaching staff (i.e. headmasters, project coordinators, HR managers…).
The overarching goal of our courses is the emphasis on transferable skills that can be used directly in teaching and learning situations.
Notice that teachers, trainers, headmasters and any other staff of education organizations are eligible to receive all-inclusive funding by the Erasmus+ (Erasmus Plus) programme - covering travel, board and lodging expenses and course fee - to attend our courses.
Why are our methods excellent?
Our methodology is based on group activities, brainstorming, cooperative learning, simulation and best practices’ exchange, which means sharing and seeking out new knowledge with a special emphasis on the social and cultural dimension of Europe.
Our courses provide cultural visits, practical group work, networking and the last one to the course roundup and review, validation of learning outcomes and certification. We offer full modules for preparation, monitoring and validation.
The trainings are delivered by skillful trainers with experience in the field or in the core knowledge category of the training topic.
Grants and organization. How it works?
The European Programme Erasmus+ Key Activity 1 is addressed for school teachers, headmasters, inspectors, trainers, training organizations and non-teaching staff across Europe.
The mobility grant’s request must be submitted by each group or individual participant’s school.
All information is available on the web site of your National Agency. (http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/contact_en)
Some advice to be considered:
Applications must be submitted by the organization where the participants work and not by each individual participant or group.
The grant application form can be downloaded from the website of your National Agency.
You can view a list of the national agencies here.
Course applicants cannot apply for a course in their own country.
You have the opportunity to apply for the grant once a year. Course fees, transportation, meals and accommodation can be covered by the Erasmus+ (Erasmus Plus) programme.
How do you apply for Erasmus+ funding?
If you would like to join us for our courses in your Erasmus+ KA1 application (one or several courses), the first thing to do is to fill out the interest form registration on our website after deciding which courses, dates and locations you would like to apply for. Project applications must be submitted by your organization directly to the national agency responsible for Erasmus+ in your country. Next deadline is February 2020.
After the national agency has approved your project, you can contact us to confirm your course places.
But if your school isn’t registered in the Education Participant Portal (PIC) yet, then it should follow this proceedment:
This process will give a PIC number, which your school will need for the application.
Once the school has done this, you can start completing the application form. Notice that applications must be made by an organization (individuals can no longer apply). Organizations can apply for several courses and dates in different locations for just one or two years. Each school can apply for a small amount of teachers or the whole teaching staff.
In your application you must apply for a grant for: Course Fees, Organizational Support (pedagogic support, learning outcomes validation and certification), Individual Support (accommodation,meals,local transport) and International Travel (to and from the course location) mobility grants. A draft application form to assist in the preparation of your application is available in the Erasmus+’s website. The application form for 2020 will be available soon in your National Agency. You will then complete the application form and submit it electronically to your national agency, before the deadline (February 2020).
Learning Together´s PIC code is 916487332
After your grant application has been successfully delivered, your national agency will contact you. Afterwards, you should contact us to confirm your place. We provide an all-inclusive package which includes accommodation, food and local transportation, as well as organizational support provided that your fees have been received before your arrival.
