In the second of three posts, Elva Duggan from our Programme Support and Development Team offers advice for organisations writing an Erasmus Plan. This is based on guidance in “Go International: a practical guide on strategic internationalisation in Vocational Education and Training.”
To help organisations develop and write an Erasmus Plan, in the first part of this series we introduced a simplified model of strategic planning. In this post, we’ll look at the actions needed to embark on developing an Erasmus Plan, or strategy journey, as well as key areas that are essential for successful implementation of such a strategy.
The authors have based the eight steps below on years of work with internationalisation strategies among the Erasmus+ National Agencies involved in the production of the guide.
A visual reminder of the simplified model of strategic planning as developed by the authors:
The last part of this series gives some guiding questions for your Erasmus Plan.
Léargas would like to thank the Finnish National Agency for Education, for leading the development and co-ordination, and working alongside a team of representatives from the Danish, Dutch, Hungarian and German Erasmus+ National Agencies in VET in developing this comprehensive, practical and useful guide.
