Options of Euneos’ Redesign project:

  • Lead-in online training unit (16-24 hrs), 160 €
  • Completion to full online course (12-20 hrs), 190 €
  • Blended mobility (48 hrs) : lead-in unit + KA1 course on site 650 €
  • Full online training (36 hrs): lead-in unit + completion unit 350 €

If the on-site part of a blended mobility fails, the lead-in component can lead to full online course. There should be nothing that prevents schools to use part of their grant for online training during the pandemic. All online courses above can be funded by the organisational support (350€) of Erasmus+ grant, read what the commission says>>

The new Erasmus+ programme 2021-2027 tells it like it is: ”In addition to physical mobility, all staff mobility activities can be blended with virtual activities.” (Erasmus+ Guide 2021, p. 95)

Those who register for Euneos courses can inform that they are also willing to take an optional online component. Blended courses of Euneos can vary up to the course and trainer. Provided that there are the minimum number of registrants, the online component will be run in the framework of the whole Erasmus+ KA1 course. The course fee of a blended course will be equal to a full on-site course.

Euneos teams are experienced to handle big groups from the same school or from a consortium of schools. Euneos trainers can help both on site and online, and our experts can also be invited to travel to any venue. Mail to courses@euneos.eu to consult Euneos admin.

If uncertain consult your National Agency. Link to National agencies>>
Other funding is possible too. Courses are certified by Euneos FI, the Finnish Erasmus KA1 course provider.

Target Group:

  • Teachers and management of primary and secondary school

Main topics of the course

The course covers a wide range of innovative tools that help to drive and upskill teachers’ digital skills and strategy in order to create and distribute engaging curriculum content that can be delivered  purposely to students at home or in school.

The last 12 months have demonstrated the huge adaptability and resourcefulness of everyone in the education sector in reimagining the use of everyday technology to provide continuity of learning in very challenging and critical circumstances.

Slowly, as parts of life and society begin to move forward, the experiences and difficulties of teaching remotely have helped us as educators develop digital skills and approaches to learning that have enable us to present learning opportunities more effectively and in a way that the idea of “a classroom in my back pocket” becomes a distinct possibility. 

This course looks to further develop ideas of creating a platforms that can be used by an individual teacher or a school to host and present a content that can be accessed and responded to by students at any time, in any setting with any device

The lead-in, “A Classroom in My Back Pocket” course is conducted over two sessions with additional tasks to help reinforce and develop both practical skills and strategic vision for using mobile technology for creative curriculum content delivery.

COVID-19 Euneos Policy

Your health and safety, and keeping COVID-19 epidemic in control, are important to Euneos. In order to balance that commitment with the need for lifelong learning, we have taken the following precautions:


Courses

All Euneos courses between March 2020 and May 2020 were postponed due to the epidemic. Registered participants were supported by offering the client organizations an opportunity to move their registrations to latter sessions.

From August 2020 onwards, arrangements of each course are decided after careful consideration taking into account the situation in course location, and both national and EU recommendations.

In order to support learning also during these difficult times, Euneos has organized 13 free webinars during the lockdown. Information about the future webinars, when confirmed, will be found on Euneos website (https://www.euneoscourses.eu)


Safety arrangements in our courses

Each course will be  arranged if the location is considered safe by the authorities.
Euneos collaborates closely with the course venues, and chooses venues that are taking the new health requirements seriously. Special attention is paid to cleaning and hygiene of the venue.

Course venues are arranged so that the safe distance between all participants can always be kept.

The recommendations about the face mask use depend on the country and the general situation of the epidemic. The participants will be informed well in advance of how they should be prepared. Euneos recommends that the participants bring their own masks and hand sanitizer with them, as their availability in different locations cannot be guaranteed.


Recommendations for participants

Make flexible travel plans in case a course needs to be postponed due to an outbreak. Currently, many airlines give good flexible ticket options. Choose also accommodation on flexible terms.

In case a new outbreak prevents us from arranging a course, all participants are given options for rescheduling their registration to a latter session, but Euneos is not responsible for potential travel expenses of the participants.

Please postpone your participation in case you have any Covid-19 symptoms and inform the course administration (courses@euneos.eu) and the main trainer about it as soon as possible.
