Staff Mobility for Training (STT)

Staff Mobility for Staff Training is the activity field that provides an opportunity to a staff, who is employed in a higher education institution in Turkey having ECHE, to have training in one of the program countries.

Within the scope of this activity, it is possible for the person to take various training (on the job training, observation processes, etc.) to develop the skills he/she has in his/her current job.

Participation in conferences is not considered as an eligible activity within the scope of staff training.

Facilities to have training at can be; businesses, training centers, research centers, chambers of commerce and associations, schools, foundations, non-profit organizations, career guidance organizations, professional counseling and guidance organizations, higher education institutions, and other organizations specified in the Erasmus + Program Guide.

Calculation of Travel Expenses

The amount of travel expenses to be paid to the staff benefiting from Staff Mobility for Training should be calculated using “Distance Calculator”. The distance calculator can be accessed from the link down below:

http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/tools/distance_en.htm

Using the distance calculator, the km value of the two points, from the place where the personnel is located to the place of activity should be determined and the travel grant should be calculated using the table below.

The grant equivalent of the km, which is calculated in the distance calculator, in the following table is the round trip amount, and it is not multiplied by two.

Traveling with connected flights does not affect the distance that is found with the above-mentioned calculation.

Calculated "km" distance Grant amount
Between 10-99 km 20 €
Between 100-499 km 180 €
Between 500-1999 km 275 €
Between 2000-2999 km 360 €
Between 3000-3999 km 530 €
Between 4000-7999 km 820 €
8000 km and over 1.500 €

 

The starting point of the mobility is assumed to be the sending facility and the place where the activity takes place is the hosting facility.

If the travel starting point is a city other than the city where the sending institution is located or if the activity is taking place in a city other than the host city where the host institution is located -if this situation causes changes in the distance band- the travel invoices are requested and the staff is granted according to the actual distance band.

The beneficiaries who prove that the travel grant allocated according to the distance band in Table-4 does not cover at least 70% of the total travel costs may claim additional travel costs provided that they are certified.

The grant may not exceed 80% of the total travel costs. However, in this case, additional travel grants are not paid according to the distance band.
