Leonardo da Vinci programme
The Leonardo da Vinci programme is an EU funded Lifelong Learning Programme for young people aged 18 or above who want to improve both their working and language skills while experiencing life in another European country.
Leonardo is also an opportunity for the participant and receiving organisation to exchange knowledge and ideas and to gain understanding of others by comparing their different cultures.
A Leonardo mobility project usually involves a sending and a hosting organisation and one or a group of individuals, selected on a motivation/competence basis. It includes continuous tutoring, monitoring and a subsequent dissemination of ideas by both the sending and the hosting organisations.
Only permanent residents of the UK can apply for this programme.
The placements are funded by a grant from the EU but please note the following terms and conditions:
- a £100 administration fee applies, but ...
- you will receive a 'successful completion' payment of €200 (approx. £150) when you finish
