Erasmus for all: the education Eu program

Erasmus for all is the new program proposed by the European Commission in the field of education, training, youth and sport. It will begin in 2014 and significantly increase the funding allocated for the development of knowledge and skills.
The program has as its premise that investing in education and training is the tool to unlock the potential of people, regardless of their age or their social context.
When the existing programs have been started on, european and world social-economic context was different. Since we are experiencing at this moment one of the most difficult economic periods of our time, the EU has responded by implementing a coordinated strategy for growth and jobs called Europe 2020. Education and training are integral parts of this strategy.
The labor market in Europe is changing. Increase the number of jobs requiring high skills and decrease that of low-skilled jobs. One of the main objectives of Europe 2020 is to increase the level of qualifications in higher education. Erasmus for all can contribute to enabling citizens to acquire more and better qualifications using the opportunity to study and train abroad.
The other major objective of Europe 2020 is to reduce school dropouts. To help achieve this goal Erasmus for all will support the modernization at all levels of education and training.
Erasmus for all will be used to replace with a single program seven existing programs: it will feed the current Lifelong Learning Programme (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig), Youth in Action and five international cooperation programs (Erasmus Mundus, Tempus Alfa, Edulink and Programme of cooperation with industrialized countries). The main interventions will be included in the Program in carried forward, but will strengthen the activities in which the systemic impact is strongest and where there is a more clear added value at EU level.

The three main actions that The Program will support are: learning opportunities for individuals, both the EU and outside it, including study and training, internships, teaching and professional development and youth activities such as volunteering; institutional cooperation between the institutions educational efforts to encourage the implementation of innovative practices, support for the reform of the Member States and cooperation with non-EU countries.
Erasmus for all will, of course, open to all learners and all educators in any public or private bodies operating in the field of education, training, youth and sport.
