THE RESULTS FOR THE FIRST YEAR OF THE NEW EU EDUCATION programme Erasmus+, which includes the former Leonardo da Vinci funding for vocational education and training (VET), are now in. Although 2014 got off to a slow start due to delays in adopting its legal principles and in its I.T. system, over 99% of the money allocated was spent. 377 VET projects involving nearly 2,500 groups received funding of more than €96 million, the system having been changed so that organisations rather than individuals must now apply. Most projects run for 18 months to two years so the assessment of their impact is provisional but overall about 500,000 students and young people and 150,000 lecturers, teachers and youth leaders studied, trained and taught abroad in 2014.
