Staff Training Mobility is the subactivity field that allows staff of higher education institutions to train and study in higher education institutions or enterprises.

When going abroad in scope of Training Mobility, there is no need for a Bilateral Agreement between the higher education institution and enterprise.

Period of time for education in Training Mobility is determined minimum 2 (two) days. When this period of time is less than 2 days with no reason, Erasmus grant would not be given. Payment is made for 3 days of education + 2 days of travel allowance.

Grant Payments: Calculating the grant for the staff of higher education institution who will benefit from Training Mobility is done by the staff’s own institution according to the grant calculating rules determined by the Center. The grant given to the staff during Training Mobility is a contribution; it is not aimed to cover up all the expenses during the education period abroad. There is no other payment such as accommodation, food, communication and local travel expense except the grant given.

For the days except training duration, there is no grant payment made.

Staff can benefit from the programme without grant.

In order to pay the daily grant to the staff benefitting from the training mobility except of the travel days, it must be seen on the work plan that this staff was engaged in activity for a full day or nearly a full day or he/she must be certified with a certificate of attendance.

Erasmus Training Mobility activities must be completed until 30 September 2019.
