EU Placements / Erasmus+

The Erasmus Plus Programme offers SligoCFE students the opportunity to apply to work abroad (usually for a three week period). Placements will be arranged with employers in the host country with support from SligoCFE. You can experience living in another culture, enjoy travelling, improve language skills, gain a Europass Qualification, add this experience to your CV and get that valuable job. Students will have the opportunity to complete placements in their vocational area in Kempten (Germany), Fougères (France), Barcelona (Spain) and Exeter, (UK).

Placements normally take place during the academic year September-May. If your application to work aboard is successful, you will qualify for a grant towards the cost of the mobility programme including travel, accommodation and living expenses. In addition you will receive language and cultural preparation prior to departure.
