How to apply
School Heads and Teachers participation in the OSOS Summer Academy courses can be funded by the ERASMUS+ Programme.
School Heads and Teachers who are interested in the OSOS Summer School 2018 can apply to their National Agencies for ERASMUS+ funding, under Key Action 1, "Individual mobility". Although the type of action is entitled "Individual mobility", the applications are submitted by the participants' schools- no individual applications can be submitted.
Eligible countries for ERASMUS+ funding are the 28 EU member States, plus Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, Turkey and FYROM. Since the course is taking place in Greece, participants from Greece are not eligible to apply for an ERASMUS+ grant to attend it.
However, if you are a Greek teacher and you are interested in attending our Summer school, you can take part in the OSOS Greek National Educational Scenario con, the prize for which is a scholarship for the summer school. More info will be announced soon.
Taking part in this course can be included in the school’s application to ERASMUS+ as a training activity. Please consult the description of the course (objectives, preparation, follow-up) in order to fill in the application and read carefully the information provided below on ERASMUS+.
What is ERASMUS+ ?
ERASMUS+, the new EU programme for Education, Training, Youth, and Sport (2014-2020) has a special focus on teachers’ professional development. Up to 2013 , the Comenius Training grants offered some good opportunities for individual teachers to attend training courses. Since January 2014 ERASMUS+, which replaced the old Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP), really multiplies these opportunities. Never before has there been so much EU support for teachers' professional development through mobility in Europe! There is a big difference, however: Applications are not submitted by individual teachers anymore. They are submitted by schools. Another new aspect is that you can re-apply this year even if you have applied and been funded in the past!
So, your school needs to apply for you, as well as for any other of your colleagues, including your interest in training on school development and innovation that you will include in the ‘European Development Plan’ section of the application. For up-to-date information about Erasmus+ please check the Programme's website. Your school will need to apply to your country’s National Agency, who is also the one who will evaluate the proposal. Therefore, your National Agency is also a very good point to start for more information.
In the New Programme Guide, for the part that we are discussing here (“KA1 - Learning Mobility of Individuals”, and in particular “School education staff mobility”) just go to pages 61-67 and 264-266, and you will have all you need to know.
We will be happy to guide you through the process.

The cost for your participation in the ISE Summer School includes
a) the course fees, and b) costs for subsistence and accommodation.
The Summer School fee for Erasmus+ applicants is 420€ (70€/per day). The summer school fee covers:
Subsistence & accommodation:
The ISE Summer Schools have managed to negotiate a special deal with the hotel for all participants! We are happy to offer to all participants a single room with all-inclusive services (i.e. breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks and free of charge services for outdoors sports and recreational activities - a farewell dinner is also included) within the Erasmus+ budget rules. The Erasmus+ KA1 budget for individual support per day for Greece will therefore cover all costs directly linked to the subsistence & accommodation of participants during the course. Based on the current Erasmus+ regulations, the individual support for Greece is currently (2018) up to 128 Euros / day.
Please note that according to the rules of the Erasmus+ program the individual support budget covers only the expenses of participants. Special rates may be arranged for accompanying persons.
