Our OID is E10201112

The Erasmus Plus programme was developed by the European Union and provides teachers the opportunity to take training courses abroad and learn new teaching techniques.

The program is divided into 4 actions:

  • Key Action 1 
  • Key Action 2 
  • Key Action 3
  • Jean Monnet Actions

We provide courses related to Key Action 1: mobility of individuals abroad such as teachers, invited experts, VET trainers, etc.

You can find more information on our Erasmus+ KA1 page.

The Key Action 1 provides a fantastic opportunity for individuals, allowing you to take international training abroad, in many European countries.

It’s also the most funded Action in the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 program, revealing the importance of mobility in today’s EU.

You can find more information on our Erasmus+ KA1 page.

Regarding accommodation, Learning Together does not offer accommodation and meal services. The vast majority of previous participants prefer the freedom to choose their own accommodation, either for financial purposes, for company and socialization purposes, or, even, because of the sending Institution directives. Either way, we too believe it is best to allow our participants to choose their own accommodation. If you prefer a smaller room by the riverside, or a bigger apartment with a kitchenette closer to downtown go ahead, it’s all up to you. The same goes to meals! Although we offer coffee breaks during the training sessions and dinner on the first night, we incentivize you to go out and discover the traditional Portuguese cuisine world. In any case, we always offer accommodation and restaurants suggestions to our participants!

In fact, we have a whole page dedicated to Porto! You can find all the information you’ll need to fully enjoy Porto (sightseeing, restaurants, accommodation, entertainment, you name it!). Check out our Discover Porto page to find out more!

First of all, congratulations on your approval!

You should contact us to confirm your place. We’ll reply to you immediately and inform you if the chosen course already reached the minimum number of participants for it to be confirmed. As soon as it is, we’ll contact you so you can start researching for plane tickets and accommodation. For that,  we’ll provide all the information you need for accommodation, restaurants, sightseeing, public transportation and organizational support.

Basic steps:

In order to confirm your application, we ask you to fill in our final registration and to constitute a bank deposit of the first 100€ (per person) of the total amount, and the rest of the amount around one month before the course starts.

In the last two months before the course starts we enter into more frequent communication and answer all the questions, you might have.

Let’s start this adventure together!
