The Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI) has granted Erasmus+ accreditations for all Finn-Net colleges (Gradia, Salpaus, Tredu and Varia). The recognition granted by EDUFI is an indication of the high-quality of the network’s international activities.
Erasmus+ accreditation ensures funding for both student and staff mobility for the current seven-year financial framework of the European Union. It enables the colleges and the network to continue systematic and strategic development and implementation of mobility activities. Awarded accreditations also demonstrate the organisation’s commitment to the quality standards of the programme. Applications for accreditation were assessed based on transparent criteria which were the same in all programme countries.
Accreditation is based on Erasmus Plan and its implementation and monitoring will be developed in the Finn-Net network and, more broadly, in the Network of networks.
In 2019 Finn-Net Colleges sent 646 students abroad and received 543 students to Finland. Finn-Net staff members made 482 exchanges abroad and Finn-Net received 1083 staff mobilities to Finland.
