As one of the leading partners for schools, colleges, universities and educational institutions looking for high-quality Erasmus+ and Turing Scheme placements abroad, we know what it takes to make sure you get the very best out of your mobilities. Find out about the four three to really think about for your own work and study experiences abroad by reading on.

  1. Protect Your Budget

In a post pandemic world there’s a lot you have to pay attention to when organising a successful Turing scheme or Erasmus+ project and one of the most important aspects is to protect your precious budget!

Firstly, you need to select a very reputable partner, such as us at TravelEdventures. We have decades of experience in organising Erasmus+ projects (and the new UK Turing Scheme) and we never let our partners down!

What we’ve seen over the past few years are lots of organisations in the same field as us suffer due to the pandemic. Many ceased to exist after COVID-19 which has resulted in lots of educational institutions, governments and NGOs seeking new partners. We’ve also seen lots of the latter finding it hard to work with their current partners – because of inflexibility. Rest assured, we are completely flexible and trustworthy. Make sure whoever you entrust your Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme experiences with is trustworthy too.

  1. Protect Your Payments

Make sure your payments are safe. The pandemic has put added financial stress on many organisations so make sure your payments are fully insured, for example through a government insurance scheme. If your partner goes bust – you will lose your money immediately unless you have good insurance in place.

  1. Don’t Accept Ridiculous Payment Terms!

Again, for many organisations the pandemic has been tough and to counter the effects of the pandemic we’ve heard of a lot requesting ridiculous payment terms! Our best advice to you is never to accept outrageous down payment requests, it’s just not necessary to send over large amounts in advance.

In fact, we’ve had many organisations come to us because their old partners have tried to overcharge them, or they’ve asked for payment early. So make sure to work with a partner who can work with your desired payment plan and who delivers with meticulous levels of care.

The chances are if you have to pay too much up front the organisation will use the money for their own operations instead of delivering service to you. Therefore it’s more important than ever to work with a reputable partner that you can trust we have been one of the lucky few organisations who stayed profitable during the pandemic so if you or your colleagues are struggling to find someone to work with and want to work with a trusted supplier then please get in touch with us!

Final Words

It is important to do your own research before settling on the right partner – look at their reviews, their past success rate and their partnership organisations too and speak to your preferred partner before agreeing to use them for your Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme projects.
