The Erasmus Learning Academy (ELA), is a training centre that strongly supports and believes in the innovation, modernisation and internationalisation of education.
Our mission is to foster excellence and quality improvements in education and training. We design and deliver training courses and structured training events for teachers, trainers, headmaster and other education staff and we support them in participating in learning mobility experiences (e.g. jobshadowing, study visits, ...) to foster the improvement of their competences and the quality of education.
We work in the education sector since more than 10 years, thus we know the real context and the challenges which teachers are facing every day. Fueled by our genuine, motivated and passionate approach, we regularly participate in international training and European conference to keep our know-how up-to-date. We actively participate in the network of Erasmus organizations in a multitude of ways: hosting participants from other countries and sending our staff abroad through Erasmus+ KA1 mobility projects; taking part in conferences and contact activities organised by the National Agencies and the EU institutions; ideating or participating in Erasmus+ KA2 innovation projects and strategic partnerships; sharing our knowledge with other organisations that have less experience in the Programme by providing advice, mentorship or other support.
We’ve a strong know-how in organizing international training courses for teachers, headmasters and educational staff and in the last 5 years we’ve successfully received and trained over 3000 teachers and education staff coming from all over Europe as you can read from the reviews at on School Education Gateway and on our website.
We’ve extensive experience in delivering education staff training especially in the framework of European programmes. We’ve experience in providing linguistic, pedagogical and cultural preparation before the course as well as support and assistance during and after it. We know how to support and guide participants providing clear and comprehensive information before the courses and how to assess and recognize their learning outcomes through national and European instruments (i.e. Europass, ECVET, …). We put a strong effort on facilitating the share the process of sharing results and knowledge gained during the course.
Past participants appreciated especially the quality of instructions, our interactive and hands-on approach focused on practice and experiential training as well as our support in project implementation, practical arrangements, certification and dissemination. Most of our participants receive funding from the Erasmus+ programme. If you’re eligible to receive a grant from Erasmus+ you shall consider that we can support you by providing:
- advices and information during the application phase;
- support for the final report and the Mobility Tool filling;
- all the documents needed (certificates, invoices, invitation letters, …) in the format requested by Erasmus+ National

DIRECTOR'S 2023 FOREWORD
The last years have been rich of challenges and successes and it’s always nice to look back to the recent past to then look forward.
2022 was as well the year in which we finalized the project Social Inclusion through Gamification in Education and if you haven’t yet checked SIGE curriculum and handbook then you have to.
I would have loved to spend a word on each of the unique 114 training courses implemented in 2022 that empowered and inspired over 1300 teachers and education staff to improve the education for several thousands of students. This is our long-term goal and the true driver behind our passion and dedication.
ELA new catalogue is pushing forward our mission to improve the quality of education in Europe. We’ve further widened our training offer capitalizing on your feedback (feel welcome to write us proposing new ideas for innovative and practice based training). Grounding on the success and positive feedback of our course “The best for preschool teachers” we’ve added two brand new training courses tailored for preschool education staff one focused on innovative teaching methods and one on outdoor education. Moreover you will find 3 other new training courses about green skills, gender inclusiveness and group management.
The whole ELA team looks forward to welcoming you in Bologna, Palermo and Tenerife!
