Transnational Cooperation Activity "Recognition and Validation in Adult Education"

Toledo picture


Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCA) encompasses a range of events, seminars and workshops, which enable Erasmus+ National Agencies (NAs) to collaborate and share best practice across Europe. The overall aim of the activities is to improve the quality and impact of the Erasmus+ programme at a systemic level. When planning a TCA, National Agencies refer to the objectives set out in strategic documents such as Europe 2020 and the EU Youth Strategy.

Merseyside Expanding Horizons has attended a Transnational Cooperation Activity "Recognition and Validation in Adult Education" in Toledo, Spain (6-9/11/2016).

This activity has been organised by the Servicio Español para la Internacionalización de la Educación (SEPIE) and supported by the UK Erasmus+ National Agency.

We have been trained in Erasmus+ programme, Epale platforms and Europass certificates. We have also been trained in Adult education and Validation, we have received professional advice on how to work in partnership to develop a project idea for a strong Erasmus+ application. We have met more than 40 participants from across Europe and shared inspiring experience and ideas. Merseyside Expanding Horizons is already working closely with partners met during the training activity in Toledo.

Thanks to the SEPIE and the UK Erasmus+ National Agency  for this great opportunity!
