Comenius is one of the most popular international education programmes for UK schools, colleges and local authorities.
Comenius is part of the Lifelong Learning Programme. Comenius provides opportunities for schools and colleges to introduce or strengthen the European dimension in their curriculum. The new Comenius Regio partnerships allow local authorities to participate directly.
- The Comenius Programme is named after Jan Amos Comenius, often considered the father of modern education
- Comenius is aimed at schools, colleges and local authorities across Europe
Comenius has two main objectives:
- to develop knowledge and understanding among young people and education staff of the diversity of European cultures and languages, and the value of this diversity
- to help young people to acquire basic life skills and competences for their personal development, for future employment and for active European citizenship
If you work in a school, college, a local authority or a teacher training institution you are likely to be eligible to take up opportunities offered through Comenius.
