Embrace Erasmus

Let’s get Staffordshire back into Erasmus+

Erasmus+ gave young people in Staffordshire the chance to study, work and travel across Europe creating countless opportunities for young people, as well as bringing talent from other countries into our universities and workplaces.

Being outside Erasmus+ puts our country, and our young people, at a disadvantage. Sign our petition calling on the Government to open negotiations to re-enter the Erasmus+ programme. #bringbackerasmus
