Erasmus Plus - Frequently Asked Questions
The European Union's Erasmus+ program is a funding scheme to support activities in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport. This program specifically aims to support mobility and lifelong learning in the field of adult education by funding educational organisations who want to enlist their members to attend international training courses in different EU countries.
Different types of educational organisations (universities, schools) are all eligible to submit applications for covering funding for training courses. However, it is advisable to always consult with your National Agency before starting the application process and to verify your organisation’s official status.
Each member of the organisation (teachers, head managers, marketing department, administrative staff, project managers,…) can attend our training course depending on their specialty and field of work in which they want to advance and making sure that the chosen course is aligned with the Erasmus+ Key Action 1 application requirements.
If more than 5 members of an organisation would like to attend one of our courses, it is possible to organise training specifically for them. Inform us in advance so we can meet your particular needs.

With the aim to involve active participation and achieve the best learning experience, the course methodology is based upon dynamic, innovative and creative methods of experiential learning.
It consists of:
Theoretical work - If you do not know what you are talking about, you will not be able to apply it. Nowadays, more and more emphasis is put on practical learning, yet theory is a necessity. You have to know the background of a subject to be able to pinpoint its challenges.
Practical work - Through practical workshops and interactive tasks you will gain personal experience that will help you understand and implement ideas in your own work.
Coaching - Each participant in the course will get the opportunity to receive direct feedback from our coaches. These individual consultations will result in being able to better position your skills in your respected organisation.
The course includes a structured 5-day program with 2 additional travel days. Each program starts on Monday morning and finishes on Friday evening. Throughout the course, besides training, we will promote professional networking through a variety of social and cultural activities.
All our courses take place in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. Our premises are located in the very heart of the city centre. Zagreb is both the capital and largest city of Croatia. Its unique history and culture is reflected in its medieval and baroque architecture, open air markets and cafe culture. Zagreb is known as being lively and vibrant, a city of parks with many tree-lined streets, and for offering a high quality of living. The city offers a variety of museums, cultural and entertainment events and hosts many sporting events throughout the year. In recent years, Zagreb has become world-famous for its beautiful Christmas market.
Come and see for yourself, Zagreb is waiting for you!
