Grundtvig Actions - Mobility for Individuals

Who or what is Grundtvig?

Nikolaj Frederik Severin Grundtvig (1783-1872) was a Danish philosopher, theologian, teacher, historian and poet. He is regarded as the father of the Folk High School and as a staunch supporter of educating adults for active participation in society as opposed to the more abstract pursuits of scholars.

The Grundtvig programme focuses on all forms of non-vocational adult and continuing education. It is targeted at learners, teachers, trainers and other staff in adult education and the educational institutions, organisations and other bodies offering and facilitating such learning opportunities. 

Our Grundtvig training offers

The central activity in the BACKGROUND-project is the development of a training course for adult education staff in the area of violence against women in different institutional environments on a European level with the main purpose of supporting women survivors of violence.

Our course offers are included in the Grundtvig 3 database, therefore those who wish to participate can obtain a training grant to cover both the course fees and accommodation and subsistence costs. In order to do so, you should contact your Socrates National Agency in your country. We have prepared some material for you in order to make the handling of formalities easier.
