Participants should gain a better understanding of the adult learning sector in Europe; as well as enhance their knowledge of foreign languages, other European countries and their adult education systems and improve their work-related and intercultural skills.

The tasks to which an Assistant may contribute include:

  • facilitating learning or managing adult education;
  • providing support for adults with special educational needs;
  • providing information on their country of origin and helping with the teaching of its language;
  • introducing or reinforcing the European outlook at host institution;
  • initiating, developing and assisting in the implementation of projects.

Assistants should be fully integrated into the host organisation's life. As the Assistantships are open to all adult education staff, the level of experience and seniority of the participants varies considerably. Depending on their specific profile, the assistant may either:

  • play a supporting role at the host organisation, assisting in various teaching or management activities;
  • take full responsibility for one or more courses or a particular aspect of management at the host organisation ("expert assistantships").


How to participate

Adult education staff wishing to apply for an assistantship must find an organisation willing to host them before applying for funding – they must include confirmation from their host in their application.

Assistants must be affiliated with one specific host organisation during their assistantship. They may, however, carry out activities at several organisations, either to give variety to their work or to meet particular needs of neighbouring adult learning organisations in the area.

 

Assistants are selected by the national agencies in their home country. Grundtvig Assistantship grants are not normally awarded more than once to the same person within a period of 3 years.
