Lifelong Learning Programme
The Comenius programme allows exchanges and cooperation between European schools, from kindergarten to high school. The aim is to foster personal development and skills, including language, while developing concepts of European citizenship and multiculturalism. Every year in Europe, Comenius connects 11,000 schools, 100,000 teachers and 750,000 students.
As the first major European programme, Erasmus promotes mobility in Europe for students (periods of study or internship), teachers (teaching assignments), and higher education institutions' staff (vocational training).
Erasmus also facilitates cooperation between higher education institutions through the development of intensive programmes, networks and multilateral projects. In France today, all French universities participate in Erasmus, as well as most non-university higher education institutions (eg. technical schools).
Leonardo da Vinci
The Leonardo da Vinci programme is part of the Lifelong learning programme. It is designed as a tool giving impetus to education systems and vocational education in Europe in their diversity.
Leonardo allows the mobility of people wishing to gain work experience in Europe. The programme facilitates the exchange of good practices between training managers and is also a lever to implement new tools and training methods in order to extend their application at the European level.
Grundtvig aims to improve the quality of adult education and to strengthen its European dimension through various cooperation activities at the European level.
The programme allows the creation of educational partnerships that facilitates cooperation between organisations working in the fields of vocational training and adult education. Multilateral projects and networks also offer the opportunity to develop innovative teaching materials and methods.
The Erasmus Mundus programme aims to improve the quality of European higher education and to strengthen intercultural understanding. It encourages and supports student mobility and the cooperation between European and non-European educational institutions, particularly through the creation of joint degrees.
Tempus is a European cooperation programme which supports the modernization of higher education systems in partner countries (Western Balkans, Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Mediterranean).
This program especially promotes voluntary convergence with EU developments in the field of higher education and derives from the Lisbon agenda and the Bologna Process.

Euroguidance is a network initiated by the European Commission including 65 Euroguidance centres in 33 countries with the objective of developing the European dimension in educational and vocational guidance programmes.
