The Department for Education oversees Erasmus+ in the UK. The programme is managed by the UK National Agency which is a partnership between the British Council and Ecorys UK. We work to deliver the programme for the benefit of participating UK organisations, and the individuals who are able to study, train, volunteer or gain work experience abroad through the programme.
