For almost a decade Language Link has worked with European partners on a range of EU funded projects or ‘Key Actions’ under the Erasmus+ label.
Eligible projects cover many areas, including co-operation and exchange programmes between EU institutions and individuals.
Key Action 1 is divided into two main types of activity: Decentralised activities for the UK run by UK National Agency and centralised activities run by the European Commission’s Executive Agency based in Brussels.
ET – Experience teaching :

Key Action 2 is divided into two main types of activity: Decentralised activities for the UK run by UK National Agency and centralised activities run by the European Commission’s Executive Agency based in Brussels.
Key Action 2 covers the five fields of higher education, vocational education and training (VET), schools, adult education and youth. It is important to note that target groups and activities for Key Action 2 vary by field.
