Sociale inclusie (denk aan participatie, diversiteit,
Professionalisering van leraren, docenten, vrijwilligers en managers.
Deze nationale prioriteiten zijn vooralsnog aandachtspunten en wegen niet mee bij de beoordeling van aanvragen die het Nederlandse Nationaal Agentschap Onderwijs & Training behandelt.
In the Dutch national context, the NA and the Ministry of
Education, Culture and Science agreed upon two priorities in relation to the
Erasmus+ horizontal priorities that are of specific interest:
Social inclusion (key words: participation, diversity,
(world) citizenship); Inclusion is not only an important element in education as
such, but even more so in international mobility. Generally speaking, people
with a higher socio-economic status (SES) tend to find their way to Erasmus+
more easily than people with a lower SES. The NA wishes to stimulate the
inclusiveness of the Erasmus+ programme itself. This is in line with the
Education Council’s view that the Netherlands should aspire to ensure that all
young people leave the education system ‘internationally competent’ in order to
enable them to function effectively in a globalising society and in
international contexts. Erasmus+ is one of the instruments to stimulate the
inclusiveness of internationalisation in the education sector. Prioritizing
social inclusion will also address the issue of migration/refugees, which was
identified as a priority last year.
Achievement of relevant and high quality skills and competences
for professionals and teachers. Strengthening and guaranteeing the professionalism of
teachers, volunteers and management is a crucial element in increasing the
quality of education and training. Being internationally mobile and
internationally competent are important aspects of professionalism in a global
world. Furthermore, international mobility and partnership will contribute to
creating a truly positive environment for the internationalisation of education
(from building an international classroom to international mobility) which in
turn has a flywheel effect on students.
