Erasmus+ 2021-2027: KA152 & KA153 application forms

Erasmus+ 2021-2027: KA152 & KA153 application forms 800 655 Active Youth

The New Erasmus+ program brought some changes not only in the 2021-2027 Erasmus guide but in the application forms as well. 

Briefly: this post addresses the main changes of application forms regarding KA152-YOU and KA153-YOU (former KA105). From now on, the mobility of youth workers and mobility of young people has different codes instead of a general one (KA105). The platform for applying for projects has changed as well. As the application forms differ, we will briefly go through both of them to better understand the changes that occurred. It is important to mention that it is a summary of the main changes & new questions. 
Est. reading time: 5 min

First of all, we would like to point out that the focus will be given on environmentally friendly practices & non-formal learning methods, specified preparation, support, and follow-up. Moreover, on the applications, there will be more questions on HOW you are going to do that instead of what you are going to do. Besides, the project rationale (aims, target group, impact, topic) will be used instead of the project description. Also, fewer questions regarding participants with fewer opportunities and the cooperation between groups of participants, partners & relevant stakeholders can be seen in the application. The exact new questions are listed below. 

Erasmus+ Mobility of youth workers KA153-YOU

The project description was changed with Project Rationale which includes more specific questions and more how-to questions:

Aims:
  • Please describe the idea of your project, including the needs and objectives (instead of just mentioning the objectives of a project).
  • How have the needs been identified and how does your project tackle them? (instead of what are the issues and needs) 
Target group:
  • What are the main target groups of your project?
Impact:
  • How will your project benefit the youth workers and their organizations in their daily work with young people, during and after the project lifetime?
  • In what ways your project will contribute to the development of youth work in general?
  • How will you ensure the impact of the project beyond the participants and participating organizations, at the local, regional, national, European levels?
Project description (more specific questions regarding the participants of a project):
  • Please describe the profile of the youth workers involved. Please also provide information on the age of the participants and how gender and country balance is ensured.
  • How will: 1) the participants be selected; 2) you ensure that the profile of participants matches the activities; 3) the needs of the specific participants be taken into account?
  • Please describe the role and involvement of the youth workers in all phases (planning, preparation, implementation of activities, and follow-up).
  • How will the youth workers cooperate and communicate between them to prepare and follow up on the activity?
  • How would you ensure that learning outcomes and competencies acquired do transform the participating organizations’ youth work, in relation to the quality, innovation, and recognition?
Environmental friendly practices
  • Will you include sustainable and environmental-friendly practices in your activities?
  • Please describe them and mention how will you raise the awareness of participants on these sustainable practices.
Preparation, support, and follow-up
  • What measures will you put in place to ensure the safety and protection of participants?
  • What activities are foreseen after the end of the Professional Development Activity? How will the participants follow- up on the activity?
Non-formal learning
  • What non-formal learning methods will you use in your project? What will you do to be sure that the methods allowing them to learn are of high quality?
  • Do you foresee including any virtual component, before, during, or after the activity?
Sustainability of the results:
  • What will you do to make sure that your project continues to have effects also after it ends?
  • Are you planning measures to make sure that the results produced are used and beneficial to others beyond the project’s lifetime? If yes, which ones?
Dissemination of project results
  • How will you involve participants in such activities? 

Questions regarding the partnership built up of the project, reasons behind carrying out different activities, cooperation & communication with partners and other relevant stakeholders are not addressed in the new form. Also, there are fewer questions about the participants with fewer opportunities, so you do not need to be very specific about that.

Mobility of young people (KA152-YOU)

The project description was also changed with Project Rationale which includes more specific questions and more how-to questions:

Impact:
  • How will your project benefit the young participants involved in the project, during and after the project lifetime?
  • How will your project benefit the organizations or the groups of young people implementing the project, during and after the project lifetime?
Project details:
  •  Do you foresee including any virtual component, before, during or after the activity?
Environmental friendly practices:
  • Will you include sustainable and environmental-friendly practices in your activities?
  • Please describe them and mention how will you raise the awareness of participants on these sustainable practices.
Preparation, support, and follow-up:
  • What measures will you put in place to ensure the safety and protection of participants?
  • What activities are foreseen after the end of the Youth Exchange? How will the participant follow up on the activity?
Sustainability of the results:
  • What will you do to make sure that your project continues to be impactful after it ends?
  • Are you planning measures to make sure that the results produced are used and beneficial to others beyond the project’s lifetime? if yes, which ones?

Questions regarding the partnership built up of the project, reasons behind carrying out different activities, cooperation & communication with partners and other relevant stakeholders are not addressed in the new form. Also, there are fewer questions about the participants with fewer opportunities.

It is worth mentioning that accredited Erasmus organizations will gain simplified access to Key Action 1 opportunities. It means that the application process for the mobility of young people and the mobility of youth workers will be easier. For more information, please visit the website of your National Agency.
