#ErasmusDays - the benefits of welcoming Erasmus+ groups

We’re currently in the middle of Erasmus Days – a three-day celebration of the power, joy & impact of Erasmus! We pride ourselves on being Erasmus+ experts and after 22 years of welcoming groups, our link with the programme remains strong.

Thousands of participants have come to Devon with TTPL on Erasmus funded programmes and made the most of the incredible life-changing opportunities Erasmus can provide. But it’s not just the participants that benefit, as they bring a wealth of knowledge, culture and energy to the area. Young people arrive and stay with a host family they’ve never met but leave as friends. We often see students return to catch-up with hosts and even heard stories of hosts visiting students, including one instance to attend their former student’s wedding.

Employers benefit from a young person who is looking to expand their experience and their mind - and in the process giving their time to the business. These Exceptionally motivated participants bring new ideas, cultural diversity and relevant, up-to-date skills.

That’s why we’re taking a moment to promote #ErasmusDays as it’s breathed life, energy and diversity on our area for many years!
