The majority of the funded projects for education and further training are realised by the GEB in the frame of the EU program, Leonardo da Vinci. This program supports the transnational collaboration between the actors in this area by promoting stays abroad for professional training and by developing innovative learning and training materials or additional qualification between European partnerships.
The most important instruments of the program are innovation projects, innovation transfer and mobility promotion.
In the frame of the Leonardo da Vinci projects there are several offers which are meant for those who are still in their initial training or have finished it and want to acquire additional skills abroad.
EfA-Soz - Europe-wide specialised training at national advanced vocational schools for social education
Work placement for 13 up to 24 weeks for persons undergoing a traineeship as state-approved educator.
Applications can be made from all over Germany. The stays abroad can be adjusted according to the different training regulations of each federal state!
