What is the role of organisations participating in this project?

Participating organisations involved in the mobility project assume the following roles and tasks:

  • Applicant organisation (established in Serbia): in charge of applying for the mobility project, signing and managing the grant agreement and reporting.  If the applicant organisation is a school, it also acts as sending organisation.
  • Sending organisation (established in Serbia): in charge of selecting staff and sending them abroad.
  • Receiving organisation: in charge of receiving teachers and other school education staff and offering them a programme of activities, or benefiting from a teaching activity provided by them.

The specific role of the receiving organisation depends on the type of activity and the relationship with the sending organisation. The receiving organisation may be:

  • a course provider (in the case of participation in a structured course or training event);
  • a partner school or other relevant organisation (in the case of e.g. job shadowing or teaching assignments). In this case, the sending and receiving organisations, together with the participants, should establish an agreement before the start of the activity. This agreement should define the objectives and activities for the period abroad, and specify the rights and obligations of each party.
