Update 13th January 2021: We are working with hosts to determine possible dates for NET courses in 2021 as soon as COVID conditions allow for travel. The decision of the UK government to leave the Erasmus+ programme will not affect those projects with a signed contract. We will update participants on any new travel insurance and visa regulations.
Participants from the postponed course in 2020 will be offered first choice on any rescheduled courses in 2021.
As soon as we have confirmed dates and details we will post them here and share through our consortium. The proposed course for 2020 is provided below for information. 2021 course content may change slightly due to COVID regulations.
