When applying for an Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme experience abroad, you’ll want to get it right first time, and it can be a complicated document to go through. With a little help from TravelEdventures, you’ll soon find out how to complete your form giving you the best opportunity of getting your application approved and funding secured. In this piece, Markus Bichler (the founder of TravelEdventures) gives you his advice.

  • Access the help out there – because there’s already plenty available! Talk to the experts, talk to colleagues who’ve already been through the process, talk to professionals such as the team at TravelEdventures and talk to teachers who’ve completed application forms before – listen to their advice, it will prove invaluable! You can also search online for tips, there’s plenty of super advice ready and waiting for you to take advantage of.
  • There are webinars and seminars that are available to those looking to go abroad on an Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme and these are available through your country’s National Agency. Get in touch with your country’s representatives to find out when these are held, and make sure you attend, in person or online. The information is really important and super-useful!
  • You can also take a look at previous Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme applications to understand what a good one looks at (and to give you a little inspiration!). Ask our team for Blueprints and support materials, they’ll be happy to help you.
  • We’d also suggest sharing the load with someone else as it is a big task – and we believe that two heads are always better than one!
  • Get started as soon as possible – rather than rushing the process at the end, it’s always good to be ahead of the game, especially as you might want to tweak your application closer to the closing deadline.
  • Gather support material beforehand so you have everything to hand when you’re ready to start writing. It’s better to be equipped, rather than hunting down important information when you need it and running out of time!
  • Remember, there are lot of options out there if you don’t have the capacity to write your own application form. For example, you could jump on-board with an NGOs application in your country or area. We’d be happy to direct you to the right NGO and make sure that you’re aligned with their values so they’re ready to take you on-board.
  • Another good idea (and to make it easier) is to have an experienced teacher who knows how to write successful applications. When you have someone with the right knowledge, it really makes a difference. We already work with many retired teachers who’ve done just this and they’re here, waiting to help you with your application.

Whatever your situation, if you’re struggling to write an impactful Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme application, don’t go it alone - just make sure you get in touch with us and we’ll direct you to the right direction.
