Welcome to the Lifelong Learning Programme
The Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) provides opportunities for organisations, staff and learners involved in education and training across Europe to work together, learn from each others' expertise, and widen their experience of other cultures and languages.
The work undertaken through projects funded by the LLP is also helping to develop and shape the education and training landscape in the UK.
Funded by the European Commission, the LLP supports a wide range of education and training activities across Europe and provides opportunities for all stages of lifelong learning. In the UK thousands of projects are funded each year.
The LLP is made up of several programmes, each aimed at a specific target group:
- Schools - Comenius and eTwinning
- Higher Education - Erasmus
- Vocational Education and Training – Leonardo
- Adult Education (non vocational) – Grundtvig
- Learning professionals - Transversal
The Youth in Action programme, also funded by the European Commission, offers a range of international activities for young people aged 18 -30.
This site will guide you through the opportunities available through LLP and Youth in Action and help you decide which opportunity is right for you and your organisation.
Once you’ve decided, the next step will be to visit the dedicated programme website which provides more information about the activities supported by each of the programmes.
