  • A teacher returning after a career break
  • A language trainer, inspector or adviser

You could get a grant which covers the cost of your course, accommodation and living expenses.

  • Course fees where appropriate

How and when to apply for a grant?

To obtain Grundtvig funding you need to download an application from the website of your National Agency.

Complete the form before the deadline date quoted. We find that the earlier the application, the more likely it is you will win a grant.

Grants are available to enable you to participate in courses lasting between one and four weeks, which take place in a country where the target language is spoken and taught. Contact your National Agency for full details.

The procedure to apply for a grant is as follows:

  1. Choose the course that you would like to attend. You should then obtain information about availability of places direct from International House Livorno and send in your registration form.
  2. Once you have registered provisionally with International House Livorno, apply to your National Agency for support to attend your chosen course. Details of how to contact your National Agency are on the Comenius web site.

    • how they will use the skills and knowledge gained on the in-service course to the benefit of their school or institution
    • how the experience could help them to set up school partnerships with other schools in Europe
    • how the course will give them a better understanding of school education in Europe and increase the European dimension of their work

  5. Submit your completed application forms by the appropriate closing date to the National Agency in your country
