EU programme for education, training, youth and sport

Erasmus accreditation

Adult education, vocational education and training, and school education

Erasmus accreditation is a tool for education and training organisations in adult education, vocational education and training (VET), and school education that want to open up to cross-border exchange and cooperation.

Accreditations are open to all organisations that want to organise mobility activities on a regular basis. Award of the Erasmus accreditation confirms that the applicant has set up an Erasmus Plan to implement high quality mobility activities as part of a wider effort to develop their organisation.

Erasmus accreditation gives organisations simplified access to Key Action 1 funding every year to implement their planned mobility activities and achieve the Erasmus Plan objectives.

Interested organisations from Programme Countries can apply for one of the following:

  • an individual Erasmus accreditation only for their organisation
  • an Erasmus accreditation as a mobility consortium coordinator. Mobility consortiums are formed by at least two organisations based in the same Programme Country.

Previous experience in Erasmus+ is not required to apply.

When applying for Erasmus accreditation, organisations agree to follow a set of Erasmus quality standards that ensure good quality of implemented mobility activities.

How to apply

The application process is managed by the National Agency of the country where the applicant organisation is established. To check if your organisation can apply, visit the website of your National Agency.
