Staff Mobility

Funding is available to help teachers, lecturers and non-academic staff develop their skills in schools, universities, colleges and adult education environments around 33 countries in Europe – through job shadowing, teaching and training activities. Currently we have four staff mobility openings available for 2019-2020 academic year.

The Mobility should take place between the 1st of June of current year and the 30th of September of the following year. There are two mobility types for Staff members.      
 

Staff Mobility for Teaching (STA):  Open for Teaching Staff 

 
• For teaching mobility, host institutions should be holders of ERAMUS + Charter.
• CyI and the host institutions must have an inter-institutional agreement before the mobility takes place. If not, faculty member(s) or Program Directors should initiate the process by contacting interested parties in the host organization. 
• In case STA takes place in a Partner Country’s Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) recognized by their competent authorities, they should be an inter-institutional agreement with CyI.  
• The mobility should include a minimum of eight hours of teaching.
• All parties must have completed the Mobility Agreement for Teaching prior to the departure of the participant.
• The teaching assignment should be integrated into the curriculum of the receiving institution.
 

Staff Mobility for Training (STT): Open for Administrative / Academic / Non-academic Staff Members

 
For training, the receiving organisation can be a HEI awarded with an Erasmus Charter, any public or private organisation active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training and youth, such as:  
• a public or private, a small, medium or large enterprise (including social enterprises);
• a public body at local, regional or national level;
• a social partner or other representative of working life, including chambers of commerce, craft/professional associations and trade unions;
• a research institute;
• a foundation;
• a school/institute/educational centre (at any level, from pre-school to upper secondary education, and including vocational education and adult education);
• a non-profit organisation, association, NGO;
• a body providing career guidance, professional counselling and information services
 
  •  The Mobility Agreement should be agreed and signed prior to the departure.
  •  The host organization should be in the EU.
  •  For CyI, the maximum duration for the training is five days. 
 
Conference participation does not qualify for ERAMUS+ funding. 
 
The 'Mobility Agreement’ should be prepared prior to the start of the mobility period. These agreements define the target learning outcomes for the learning period abroad, specify the formal recognition provisions and list the rights and obligations of each party. 
 

Procedure for Staff Mobility

 
The Office of Graduate Studies sends out a Call for applications normally at the beginning of June, after receiving funding confirmation for new academic year from the National Agency.
 
Applicants should indicate three mobility destinations by the order of priority and submit the application form to the Office of Graduate Studies within the deadline specified (typically around the end of June). 
 
The ERASMUS Committee will evaluate applications against the set selection criteria and in accordance with the allocated budget.  The Office of Graduate Studies communicates the outcome of selection to applicants in writing.
