Edinburgh School of English Courses for Teachers

 For teachers of English

Teachers choose Edinburgh School of English to be exposed to new ideas and techniques, to meet colleagues from around the world and share practice, and to develop professionally in a supportive and inspiring learning environment.

The courses are aimed at overseas teachers whose first language is not English, and who are engaged in planning and/or delivering programmes.

Our PIC number for Erasmus+ is 944933164.

Erasmus+ started on 1 January 2014 and will run from 2014-2020. It replaces current funding programmes run by the European Commission in the area of education, training, youth and sport, including the Lifelong Learning Programme.

Our courses in 2021 are eligible for funding that was granted for 2019/20 projects. If your school has received funding for courses that you were unable to attend in 2020, you can still attend these courses in 2021.

Who can apply for the funding?

  • Erasmus+ will be open to a wide range organisations across all sectors of education and training in EU member and EFTA states (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland). As an individual, you will need to apply through your university, college or organisation.

How to apply

  • As a first step your organisation will need to register on the European Commission Authentication Service and submit a plan to request a grant. If funding is awarded, your institute can then choose which courses they would like their staff to participate in. As there is no database you will then be able to nominate our courses and we can provide an information you require. For more details about how to apply, please go to:
