SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES

The specific objectives pursued by the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of education and training are to:

- foster quality improvements, innovation excellence and internationalisation at the level of education and training institutions, in particular through enhanced transnational cooperation between education and training providers and other stakeholders;

-promote the emergence and raise awareness of a European lifelong learning area designed to complement policy reforms at national level and to support the modernisation of education and training systems, in particular through enhanced policy cooperation, better use of EU transparency and recognition tools and the dissemination of good practices;

- enhance the international dimension of education and training, in particular through cooperation between Programmeand Partner-Countryinstitutions in the field of VET and in higher education, by increasing the attractiveness of European higher education institutions and supporting the EU's external action, including its development objectives, through the promotion of mobility and cooperation between Programme and Partner-Country higher education institutions and targeted capacity building in Partner Countries;

- improve the teaching and learning of languages and promote the EU's broad linguistic diversity and intercultural awareness.

KEY ACTION 2 – COOPERATION FOR INNOVATION AND THE EXCHANGE OF GOOD PRACTICES

This Key Action supports:

1) Transnational Strategic Partnerships aim to support the development, transfer and/or implementation of innovative practices as well as the implementation of joint initiatives promoting  cooperation, peer learning and exchanges of experience at European level.

Priorities:
- developing basic and transversal skills (such as entrepreneurship, digital skills and language competences) using innovative and learner-centred pedagogical approaches and developing appropriate assessment and certification methods.
- developing new approaches to strengthen the education and training paths of prospective and practicing educators/youth workers; equipping them with all competences and skills needed to deliver high quality services and address increasingly diverse needs.
- enhancing digital integration in learning, teaching, training and youth work at various levels;
- contributing to the development of a European Area of Skills and Qualifications
- supporting innovative projects aimed to reduce disparities in learning outcomes affecting learners from disadvantaged backgrounds/with fewer opportunities–including learners with disabilities.
-  stimulating the development and use of innovative approaches and tools to assess and increase the efficiency of public expenditure and the investment in education, training and youth.

2) Knowledge Alliances  are transnational, structured and result-driven projects, notably between higher education and business. Knowledge Alliances are open to any discipline, sector and to cross-sectoral cooperation.

3) Sector Skills Alliances are transnational projects drawing on evidence of trends in a specific economic sector and skills needed in order to perform in one or more professional fields. Sector Skills Alliances will work to design and deliver joint vocational training programmes and teaching and training methodologies. A particular focus is to be put on work-based learning, providing learners with the skills required by the labour market. Sector Skills Alliances also put the EU wide recognition tools into practice.

4) Capacity Building Projects are transnational cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships primarily between higher education institutions (HEIs) from Programme and eligible Partner Countries financed through the above mentioned instruments. They can also involve non-academic partners to strengthen the links with society and business and to reinforce the systemic impact of the projects.
