EME – European Mobility for future Early Years Educators II

July 2017 to June 2019

A project in cooperation with the Fachakademie für Sozialpädagogik, Ahornberg

Going abroad for a while to become a foreigner is certainly not the worst idea. Apart from improving the language skills (and being in the English as a bridge language), you can think outside the box and experience things that are hard to achieve in one’s own country. During their time abroad, the participants can get to know suitable institutions in various fields of work and get familiar with the working conditions there. Participants have the opportunity to apply, deepen and extend the knowledge, skills and abilities acquired in the training.

Number of scholarships for pupils: 49

Number of scholarships for teachers: 4

Our partner organizations abroad support you in the organization and implementation of the stay abroad without you thereby dismissing from your own responsibility. The internships take place in institutions of the respective occupational areas in other European countries and are guided by experienced and well-trained specialists. The scholarships depend on the destination, the services and the duration of the stay abroad. They cover most of the costs of travel, accommodation on site, placement of an internship, transport on site, etc. The rest of the costs must be borne by the participants themselves. Here are the individual amounts for stays abroad from 4 to 26 weeks. For longer stays and technical seminars please contact us.

The following services are covered by the scholarship and the contribution:

  • Preparatory seminar (one-day) in Berlin (travel and subsistence expenses will be borne by the participants)
  • Online language course for more than 4 weeks abroad
  • Flat rate for travel expenses
  • Local public transport costs (if necessary)
  • Accommodation in shared apartment or host family
  • Help finding a suitable internship
  • Care and tutoring throughout the stay
  • 24/7 emergency phone number

What do you have to do to apply?

  1. Create a Europass CV in English or in the language of the country of destination. The form for the Europass CV can be found under “Downloads”
  2. Write a letter in English or the language of the country of destination stating why you want to participate in the program

The application is sent by mail to the contact persons listed below.

The criteria for the selection for a scholarship are the own motivation and above all the relevance of the stay abroad for your education. Language skills in the language of the destination country are desirable, but in Poland, Portugal and the Netherlands, the internship may partly be conducted in German or English.

How is this continuing?

If you are selected for a scholarship, we invite you to

  • attend a seminar to prepare for the stay abroad (mostly in Berlin) and
  • to conclude an Erasmus + Subsidy Contract

If you have any questions, please contact us:

Mrs. Marianna Kosmowska (France, Italy, Malta and Poland)
Mrs. Inna Nordheimer (UK – Derry, Austria, Spain, and Netherlands)
Mrs. Neide Pedro (UK – London and Llangollen, Sweden and Portugal)
