Staff trainings - STT - Outgoing
Staff mobility for training (STT) is intended primarily for administrative staff at all levels (faculty, rectorate, centrally funded units) of Comenius University. However, teachers can also apply for this type of mobility. When it comes to teaching staff, Erasmus+ department (OPE RUK) supports the types of training activity which are in accordance with the principles of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE), i.e., professionalisation of university staff and improvement of their language and digital competences.
- Training to develop pedagogical skills / curriculum design skills,
- Intensive language courses for staff members,
- Training to develop digital competences
The receiving organisation must be:
- a Programme Country HEI awarded with an ECHE, or Partner County HEI recognised by competent authorities that has signed inter-institutional agreements with their Programme Country partners before the mobility takes place, or
- any Programme or Partner Country public or private organisation active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training, youth, research and innovation.
In principle, training mobility can be undertaken during the whole academic year. The prerequisite for undertaking a teaching mobility is successful accomplishment of the selection procedure at the relevant faculty of CU.
CRITERIA – Staff mobility for training (STT)
- Overall objectives of the mobility
- Added value of the mobility (in the context of the modernisation and internationalisation strategies of the institutions involved)
- Expected outcomes and impact (e.g. on the professional development of the staff members at both institutions)
- Number of mobilities in the previous academic year
Duration of mobility:
From 2 days to 60 days excluding travel time. In case of mobility from Programme to Partner Countries, the duration must be from 5 days to 60 days. In both cases, the minimum days must be consecutive. To maintain fair redistribution of allocated EU funds from the National Agency for Erasmus+ programme (SAAIC) and fulfil the principle of equal opportunities for applicants from all participating faculties of CU, OPE RUK recommends applicants to plan staff mobility for training for the period of 5 to 6 days which corresponds to the duration of organised staff weeks.
You can find the current offer of organised staff weeks at the following link: http://staffmobility.eu/staff-week-search
OPE RUK will pay the participant an individual support together with the travel grant in one instalment to the bank account specified in the grant agreement before mobility takes place.

The possibility to apply for staff mobility for training (STT) is open for applicants for the entire duration of the relevant academic year.

The selection procedure for staff mobility for training (STT) takes place at the relevant faculty of CU. The selection committee takes into account the criteria set by OPE RUK The condition for successful selection is a profit of at least 70% of the total number of points i.e. 28 points. The responsible person at the relevant faculty will then confirm the selection of applications in the Mobility Online system.
