Grundtvig In Service Training Grant Announces 2009 Deadlines

The Grundtvig In Service Training action programme has just announced its 2009 deadlines for funding applications. The Grundtvig In Service Training action provides funding for those involved in the delivery of adult education in the formal and non-formal sectors to enhance their skills and broaden their awareness of lifelong learning within Europe. The training must take the form of a formal structured course of at least 5 days duration up to a maximum of 6 weeks. Job shadowing/placement and attendance at conferences now come under a new action called Grundtvig Visits and Exchanges for Adult Education Staff. Please contact us directly if you are interested in this action.

Courses can be found on the Comenius Grundtvig Training Database: http://ec.europa.eu/education/trainingdatabase/

Courses sourced outside of the database can also be considered.

Please ensure that if you are a language teacher who wishes to do language training that the training you select should provide teaching tools and methodologies rather than pure language skills.

Please also check out the link to the Grundtvig In Service Training page - where you will find all the information you need about the grant etc
