Foundation for the Management of European Lifelong Learning Programmes

 

Foundation for the Management of European Lifelong Learning Programmes

The Foundation for the Management of European Lifelong Learning Programmes  was established by the decision 64.892 of the Council of Ministers dated 17 January 2007 and was registered with the Registrar of Societies and Institutions on 30 March 2007, with registration number 263. The Foundation for the Management of European Lifelong Learning Programmes is administered by a nine-member Governing Board, appointed by the Council of Ministers. The first Governing Board was appointed following the Council of Ministers decision 62.012 dated 7 February 2007. The operating expenses of the Foundation are funded both by the European Commission and the Republic of Cyprus through the Directorate General for European Programmes, Coordination and Development  which, following the Council of Ministers decision 64.597 dated 9 November 2006, was appointed as the National Authority for the Erasmus+ Programme.
The Foundation’s main activity is the management of funds allocated to Cyprus by the European Commission, for the participation of Cypriot beneficiaries in European Education/Training Programmes. The Foundation manages the Erasmus+ Programme, which was launched on 1 January 2014 and has succeeded and replaced the Lifelong Learning Program, the Youth in Action Programme and other International Programmes, such as Erasmus Mundus and Tempus. Following the Programmes of the funding period 2007-13, the Erasmus+ will be supporting Actions in all fields of Lifelong Learning (School Education, Higher Education, Vocational Education and Training, Adult Education), Sports and Youth. 

The objectives of the Foundation include not only the promotion of the targets and policies of the European Union in the fields of Education and Vocational Training, but also the promotion of targets and policies of the Republic of Cyprus in the same fields. The promotion of the afore-mentioned targets is achieved through:

  • Informing the public about the European Programmes on Education/Training and relevant policies
  • Funding schools/institutions/organisations for the mobility of their staff and learners for Education/Training purposes
  • Encouraging the participation of people of all ages in lifelong learning, including people that belong to disadvantaged groups or people with special needs 
  • Exchanging good practices in the fields of Education/Training between the countries participating in Erasmus+
  • Disseminating and exploiting the results of the Erasmus+ Programme activities
