The ERASMUS PLUS PROGRAMME co-finances this project approved in 2017 through the Spanish National Agency - INJUVE.This is the EU's programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sports for the 2014-2020 timeframe. Work in the fields of education, training, youth and sports can be an important help in tackling socio-economic changes, the main challenges Europe will face until the end of this decade, and in supporting the implementation of the European Policy Agenda for growth, employment, equity and inclusion.
The programme is a very useful tool at the European level, helping to fight the educational inequalities generated by barriers and obstacles that students with SEN face in schools.
The efficiency of education and training systems and youth policies provide people with the skills demanded by the labor market and the economy, while at the same time enable them to play an active role in society and achieve full personal development. Reforms in the fields of education, training, and youth can reinforce the process towards these objectives, based on a shared vision between policy makers and stakeholders, sound evidence, and cooperation across different fields and levels.
The Erasmus+ Programme is designed to support the efforts of the participating countries to make efficient use of the potential of European human and social talent, in line with the principle of lifelong learning, using the support of formal, non-formal, and informal learning in the fields of education, training, and youth. Moreover, the Programme enhances opportunities for cooperation and mobility with partner countries, in particular in the fields of higher education and youth.
The Programme supports actions, cooperation, and tools consistent with the objectives of the Europe 2020 Strategy and its flagship initiatives, such as Youth on the Move and the New Skills and Jobs Agenda. It also contributes to achieving the objectives of the Strategic Framework for Education and Training for European Cooperation in Education and Training and the European Youth Strategy, building on open methods of coordination.This investment in knowledge, skills, and competences will benefit individuals, institutions, organizations, and society as a whole by contributing to growth and ensuring equality, prosperity, and social inclusion in Europe and beyond.
