For almost a decade Language Link has worked with European partners on a range of EU funded projects or ‘Key Actions’ under the Erasmus+ label. Eligible projects cover many areas, including co-operation and exchange programmes between EU institutions and individuals.
The available funding is substantial but applying for it can be an administrative challenge for already busy teaching staff. Language Link takes the stress out of the application process by providing quick and easy guidance for our Erasmus+ partners.

The ‘Experience Teaching’ project offers a wonderful opportunity to develop your newly acquired teaching skills through an all-expenses paid 5-week placement.This placement gives you a chance to experience life working and living in another European country. It is an opportunity to gain valuable work experience as well as cultural awareness. The aim of this project is to offer invaluable on the job experience and training to new teachers while also raising awareness of the opportunity of working in other European countries available to EU citizens in the UK. This experience should show that working in another EU country doesn’t require fluency in the local language and cultural differences are far smaller than might be imagined.
The placements offered through this project are varied and will depend on the country you are sent to.
