Advice for those who are choosing an Erasmus+ KA1 course

What a school should check when choosing an Erasmus+ KA1 course?
1 When and how did the course provider start as an organizer of EU courses?
2 Are there nearly identical courses available from other course providers, i.e. whether the course may have been copied directly from others?
3 Are the trainers experts of the topic of the course, or so-called jacks-of-all-trades?
4 How much personal service does the course provider offer to schools?
5 Are there very few participants on the course? Or very many?
6 Is the advertisement of the course relevant, or is it more like hype?
7 Is the fee of the course significantly lower compared to the prices of the others?
8 How does the course provider respond when asked about previous implementations of the same course?
9 How does the course provider react if you intend to change the course elsewhere?
10 What can your National Office say about the course provider concerned?
There are already more than 6000 Erasmus + KA1 courses available, i.e. assumingly two courses for each Erasmus+ funded school. It has led to great dispersion. Since Erasmus + does not require any evidence of competence from the course providers, the courses are very different. To avoid disappointment, it is important to clarify things in advance.

I am biased when I write my advice. I represent Euneos, the Finnish course provider. We organise Comenius 2 courses since 2006 and Erasmus+ KA1 courses since 2014. We try to be honest, transparent and sincere. If it’s something Finnish, I can’t say.
