Evaluation of applications

Applicants for a particular TCA training event are selected by all National Agencies involved in the event (an important stage is the final selection made by the National Agency organising the specific training) based on the information provided in the application form. Applicants are notified of the selection results by e-mail. The HRDC, as a sending National Agency, receives information on the ranking of the applicants. Each approved applicant is required to contact the HRDC by e-mail at and forward the confirmation e-mail received from the event organiser specifying the financial conditions for participation in the event.

Obtaining financial support

Conditions for obtaining financial support for participation in a TCA training event/seminar

ЦThe Human Resource Development Centre, in its capacity as an Erasmus+ National Agency, only supports TCA training events and seminars which are published on the Centre’s official website. All training events supported by the HRDC are organised between Erasmus+ National Agencies.

The HRDC does not support activities organised by NGOs, education institutions or other organisations.

In order to receive financial support for the specific training you are applying for, you need to make sure that it is published on the official website of the HRDC, in the Current Training Events section. A link from which an application form can be downloaded is available in the information published about each event.

NB! You can participate in TCA activities once a year. According to the rules of the activity, you can apply for any training event or seminar you are interested in, but you will be approved within TCA only once per year. This requirement is intended to enable more people to participate in the Programme. We recommend that your choice of a specific training event be well-founded, motivated and consistent with your professional orientation.

What costs are covered?

All TCA activities supported by the HRDC are funded entirely by the participating Erasmus+ National Agencies.

Accommodation and subsistence costs are covered by the host agency, and travel costs are covered by the sending agency.

No fees are due for participation in the training events organised between the Erasmus+ National Agencies.

We recommend:

1. Get familiar with the proposed training, note who its organiser is.

2. What is your motivation to participate? Remember that you are eligible for a single training event per year.

3. Contact the HRDC as soon as you are notified that you have approved or before that, if you have any questions.

4. If you are approved but unforeseen circumstances arise during the preparatory phase and you are unable to travel, you must promptly inform HRDC in writing, indicating specific and legitimate reasons. If travel tickets have been purchased and you are unable to travel, you will have to reimburse the amount paid except in cases of force majeure beyond your control such as illness, which you must evidence by medical records.

5. Do not forget that you have to report back on your participation: you must keep all your boarding passes or the whole air ticket, these are the essential financial documents that you need to support your expenses upon your return. If an electronic ticket has been purchased and checked by a mobile phone, you must attach a printout.
