• 2 Teacher and trainer mobility
Mobility project for adult education staff can comprise one or more of the following activities: (1) teaching/training assignments: this activity allows staff of adult education organisations to teach or provide training at a partner organisation abroad; (2) structured courses or training events abroad: support the professional development of adult education staff; (3) job shadowing: provides an opportunity for adult education staff to spend a period abroad in any relevant organisation active in the adult education field.
