On 23 November, the European Commission has introduced its proposal for the new programme "Erasmus for All". This programme will integrate all the current EU and international schemes for education, training, youth and sport, replacing seven existing programmes with one. The Commission has already announced an increased budget of 19 billion EUR for the programme period 2014-2020. The new programme will be grouped into three horizontal key actions: 1. Learning mobility of individuals, 2. Cooperation, 3. Policy reform.
For the purpose of communication, the brand name will be associated with the main education sectors as follows: ‘Erasmus Higher Education’, associated with all types of higher education in Europe and internationally; ‘Erasmus Training’, associated with vocational education and training as well as adult learning; ‘Erasmus Schools’, associated with school education; and ‘Erasmus Youth Participation’, associated with non-formal learning among young people.
