This page provides a brief overview of the EU Lifelong Learning Programme. The European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme enables people at all stages of their lives to take part in stimulating learning experiences, as well as helping to develop the education and training sector across Europe.

This programme funds a range of actions including exchanges, study visits and networking activities. Projects are intended not only for individual students and learners, but also for teachers, trainers and all others involved in education and training.  

There are four sub-programmes which fund projects in different aspects of education and training:

Other projects in areas that are relevant to all levels of education, such as language learning, information and communication technologies, policy co-operation and dissemination and exploitation of project results are funded through the "transversal" part of the programme.”

In addition, the programme includes Jean Monnet actions which stimulate teaching, reflection and debate on European integration, involving higher education institutions worldwide.

The UK National Agencies for the Lifelong Learning Programmes are British Council and Ecorys. Links to these sites can be accessed on the right hand side of the screen.
