Goals of STA (Staff Mobility for Teaching)
To encourage the exchange of expertise on pedagogical methods; to enable students who are unable to participate in mobility to benefit from the knowledge and experience of academic staff from other higher education institutions and staff invited from companies in other European countries; to create a link between higher education institutions and companies.
Staff training week offers are available at: http://*staffmobility.eu/staff-week-search.
Conditions for exchange
A candidate for teaching can participate in the Erasmus programme if:
- is a national of one of the participating countries in the Lifelong Learning Programme or a national of another country employed in a participating country;
- is in an employment or contractual relationship with the faculty when applying;
- has not yet exceeded the maximum duration of the mobility for the same type of mobility
If the institution which hosts the teaching staff is a higher education institution, it must have an Erasmus University Charter.
Application and selection process
All selected candidates must submit a Teaching Programme to the faculty before going abroad. The obligatory annex to the Teaching Programme is a signed statement by which the candidate confirms that the mobility is financed only from one Erasmus source. The Teaching Programme is in fact the application form of the eligible participant for this activity. It must include a work programme to be agreed with the host institution. On the basis of the programme, the selection of eligible individuals for participation in mobility for the purpose of teaching has been made. The teaching programme must contain the purpose and explanation of the mobility (added value) and, in addition to the content of the pedagogical work, the expected results. The host institution must agree in advance with the pedagogical programme to be performed by the candidate.
Selection and pre-exchange procedure
A grant agreement has been concluded with the selected candidates in accordance with the funds allocated by the National Agency (CMEPIUS). Erasmus funds can cover part of the eligible mobility costs. Eligible costs are the actual costs and subsistence costs, up to the amount set by the European Commission on an annual basis for the host country and the length of stay and incurred during the eligible period of the agreement between the faculty and the National Agency (CMEPIUS). The maximum allowable share of eligible costs that can be covered by Erasmus funds is set out in an agreement between the faculty and the national agency.
Within 30 days after the end of the exchange, the recipient is obliged to submit to the Faculty a Report on the performed mobility of the employee for the purpose of teaching, a Certificate on the performed mobility of the employee for the purpose of teaching and invoices showing the incurred costs. The final contract amount will be determined after approval of all supporting documents submitted.
