Erasmus+ for Staff

Erasmus+ for Staff

Receiving – The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland is happy to consider Erasmus+ teaching (STA) and training (STT) mobility requests from staff who work at any of our partner institutions. Whilst we may not be able to accommodate all requests, we will do our best to consider your proposal as quickly as possible. Please send a detailed staff teaching/training mobility programme and a CV to Sarah Ward, Assistant Registrar (International and Student Experience) by email at international@rcs.ac.uk

For Erasmus+ staff training mobility it is unlikely that we would be able to accommodate visits of more than three days in duration.

Sending – Royal Conservatoire staff who are interested in participating in Erasmus+ teaching mobility at one of our partner institutions should complete an Erasmus+ Staff Teaching Mobility Agreement at https://portal.rcs.ac.uk/hr/forms/ at the start of the academic year in which they wish to be mobile. The Director, in conjunction with the Assistant Registrar (International and Student Experience) will make a decision on whether the application can be approved based on the following factors:

  • Sufficient budget
  • First-time or previous participant in Erasmus+ (first-time participants are given priority)
  • The mobility’s contribution to the overall priorities of Erasmus+ and the EU Agenda for the Modernisation of HE
  • The mobility’s contribution to the Conservatoire’s international strategy

Mobile staff must deliver a minimum of 8 hours of teaching during their stay over the minimum duration of 2 working days. A travel grant (for flights and travel to and from the airport) is paid at a flat rate and is based on a distance calculator . Please note that the grant is meant as a contribution towards travel costs and may not cover your entire travel costs. Subsistence (food, accommodation and local travel around the host city) is also paid at a flat rate and ranges from €100 to €160 per day depending on the destination country. If your mobility is approved you will be guided through the accompanying paperwork by the Assistant Registrar (International and Student Experience). Upon return from mobility, all teachers are required to complete an on-line evaluation report issued by the British Council.

Support staff at the Conservatoire are also eligible to apply for an Erasmus+ staff training mobility (STT) at a partner institution or host enterprise. Erasmus+ training periods support the professional development of higher education institution staff. The training period may be in another higher education institution or any other appropriate organisation. Training events abroad may be in the form of job shadowing, observation, attendance at workshops or courses etc. This may be for transfer of knowledge and good practice, to learn from shared experience, acquire practical skills or to discover new ideas. Support staff who would like to apply should complete an Erasmus+ Staff Training Mobility Agreement at https://portal.rcs.ac.uk/hr/forms/ Staff should apply at the start of the academic year in which they wish to be mobile. Applications will be approved by the Academic Registrar, on a first-come-first-served basis, based on the following factors:

  • Sufficient budget
  • First-time or previous participant in Erasmus+ training (first-time participants are given priority)
  • The mobility’s contribution to the overall priorities of Erasmus+ and the EU Agenda for the Modernisation of HE
  • The mobility’s contribution to the Conservatoire’s international strategy
