TELLConsult's 2016 summer courses

on Tue, 07/05/2016 - 22:17

Regrettably we cannot run most of our Erasmusplus courses planned for 2016, partly due to the number of schools' unsuccessful Grant applications but also because some of this year's course dates appeared not to be convenient for some schools.

Besides we noticed that some National Agencies were rather late in publishing the evaluation results of school grant applications and/or making the money involved available.

Yet we are happy to share with you that -at the moment- there are already enough pre-registrations for a break-even run of both the 2017 editions of course #2
