Departure

The programme for each course is tailor-made and is finalised based on the composition of the group. Please also note that slight changes are possible depending on course location and season to let all the participants benefit most from what each course venue offers at a specific period of time. Feel free to contact us for more info.

Course Price

We offer a flexible approach to course fees to ensure that you are able to choose the most appropriate option for your needs. If a participant would like to bring their partner along, they are welcome to do so provided that he/she is ready to spend time with the group during social activities, thus benefiting to intercultural exchange. Please contact us for details.

OPTION 1. ERASMUS+ PACKAGE
(best option for partners receiving an Erasmus+ grant and planning long-term collaboration with TA Group)

  • Total price per package per participant – EUR 1400

The price includes 7 days tuition and seminar materials, 6 nights accommodation in a single room, all meals and coffee breaks during the course, social programme during the course, distant support of each participant during a year + organisation support during a year.

For you reference: when obtaining an Erasmus+ grant, the amount you will receive for each participant from your organisation will be in the range of EUR 1500-1800 + travel expenses, depending on the country you come from and where the course takes place. Thus, the amount of the grant will always be enough to cover all the costs associated with the course.

Feel free to contact us if something remains unclear.

 

OPTION 2. CUSTOMIZED PAYMENT
(The option is for partners interested in a particular course or one of the additional services we offer. You can select any of the services or their combination)

  • Course fee – EUR 1250

The price includes 7 days tuition and seminar materials, 6 nights accommodation in a single room, all meals and coffee breaks during the course, and the social programme during the course.

  • Distant support – EUR 250 per year per person (optional)

The price includes online support (answers to questions, comments on reflection, participation in webinars and other online events) during the year following the course.

  • Organisation support – EUR 250 per year per person (optional)

The price includes online support for the organisation at the stage of application and reporting, as well as the possibility to have consultation on administrative issues during the project implementation.

 

OPTION 3. COURSE ONLY

We recommend that all the participants stay in one place and spend most of their time with the group we believe in the idea of informal learning. We have been organising residential courses since 2009 and our experience shows that participants benefit more when they choose to be together with the group for a week of the course. However, if this option is not possible, it may be possible to stay elsewhere and not take part in social activities and joined group dinners.

  • Course fee - EUR 800

The price includes 7 days tuition and seminar materials, as well as lunch coffee breaks.
