EU programme for education, training, youth and sport

An economy that works for people

One of the European Commission's 2019-2024 priorities


Promoting inclusion through hands-on play and blended e-learning

An important strand of the European Commission’s priority of fostering an economy that works for people is to continue to improve the quality, as well as the number of jobs in the EU. In an effort to reconcile the social and market aspects of today’s economy, the Commission is determined to make sure that gender, age, ethnicity and religious affiliation are not obstacles to fair employment.

The Erasmus + programme plays an important role in implementing this priority, with its accent on youth, education, training and sport.

Several projects use vocational education and training (VET) as a tool to help young people enter the jobs market. Meanwhile, digital platforms and open-access online courses offer the potential to reach all sectors of the European public.

Gender Education Advancing Competences in Context of Changing Europe

A programme of blended learning modules combines online and face-to-face teaching to raise awareness of gender issues, especially in the workplace. The project’s open-access, online courses are available in several European languages, and can be accessed even after the funding has ended.

Marginalised Roma and other migrant communities can be especially vulnerable. An award-winning Erasmus+ supported project uses innovative Play Hubs to bring whole families from different backgrounds together and help young children transition to school.
