Staff Teaching Mobility

Staff teaching mobility is the field of activity that allows a staff member who is obliged to teach at an ECHE holding higher education institution in Turkey to teach students at an ECHE holding higher education institution in one of the Program-related countries and to carry out academic/educational activities jointly with the other institution regarding teaching. Within the scope of staff teaching mobility, it is also possible to invite staff working in an establishment located in one of the Program-related countries to teach students at an ECHE holding higher education institution in Turkey. The personnel to be invited to give lectures from the enterprise must be employed in a foreign enterprise, training center, research center or another institution that fits the definition of enterprise. In this framework, what is meant by an eligible enterprise is any private or public institution/organization and any enterprise engaged in any economic activity, including social economy, regardless of their size, legal status and the economic sector in which they operate. The person to be invited, whose grant is paid from the Erasmus mobility budget of an ECHE holding higher education institution in Turkey, cannot be from an ECHE holding higher education institution in the countries associated with the Program. Staff tutoring is a day-based activity and grants are paid for the days taught. For this reason, in the Staff Mobility for Teaching , the teaching program must be specified on a day-to-day basis.

The duration of activity for staff teaching mobility is at least 2 consecutive days, excluding travel in mobility with Program-related countries; Minimum of 5 consecutive days in mobility with countries not associated with the program. In both cases, the maximum duration of the activity is 2 months. In order for the activity to be considered a valid activity, at least 8 lesson hours must be given. In cases where the activity takes place longer than 1 week, the required course hours should increase in proportion to the duration (for example, since 8 hours of lectures are obligatory in an activity that will last for 1 week, at least 16 hours of lectures must be given in an activity that will last 2 weeks). Where teaching and training are combined, the minimum teaching time is one week or 4 hours for short-term activities. The minimum mobility period for the staff who are invited to teach students in a higher education institution with an ECHE in Turkey, working in an establishment located in one of the countries associated with the program or in the institutions given above, is a minimum of 1 day, excluding travel days, and there is no minimum class hour application. In staff teaching mobility, if the participation certificate shows that the beneficiary has been operating for less than 2 days and/or teaching less than the required number of hours, except for force majeure 23, the activity is deemed invalid and no grant payment is made to the beneficiary. Provided that the force majeure can be documented, the activities for which the minimum period cannot be completed are accepted; Grant is given for the time spent and travel expenses are paid according to the distance calculator. Before an event or situation is considered force majeure, the Center should be contacted.

The grant given to the staff who will benefit from the teaching mobility is a contribution, and the grant is not intended to cover all the expenses related to the period spent abroad. Regarding the amount of grant to be given to the personnel, the alternatives offered to the higher education institution are included in the standard contract text that must be signed between the higher education institution and the personnel. The application to be made on the amount of the grant should be announced to the target audience and applied to all staff in the same way.

Travel Expense Calculations

The amount of travel expenses to be paid to the personnel benefiting from the staff mobility activity should be calculated using the "Distance Calculator". The distance calculator is available at the link below: 

Through the distance calculator, the km value between two points from the place where the personnel is settled to the place of activity should be determined and the travel grant should be calculated using the table below. The number of kilometers in the distance calculator is the round-trip figure in return for the grant in the table below, and the amount in question is not multiplied by two. The transfer of the staff does not affect the distance reached by the distance calculation mentioned above.
