National Agencies

The E+ NA staff is supported to acquire the skills necessary to sustain quality youth work through capacity building and offer TCAs.

The Knowledge Management and Staff Training (KMST) of the National Agencies network is the main instrument to support staff at Erasmus+ National Agencies (NAs) in the implementation of the programme. Through competence building, the staff becomes familiar with understanding and developing quality youth work, taking a coherent European approach.

To implement E+ at the national level, the NAs moreover have an instrument called Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCA). TCAs are set up annually by the NAs in negotiation with their national ministries and the European Commission. Concrete results (training courses, seminars, events) are visible at SALTO's European Training Calendar; you can filter the database to find the TCA activity offers from NAs, often in cooperation with one or more SALTO Resource Centres.

  • E+:YiA NA’s Knowledge Management and Staff Training (KMST)

    The aim of the KMST strategy is to develop capacity of Erasmus+ National Agencies in the youth field, and through this to use strategically the E+:YiA and European Solidarity Corps programmes in reaching the European and national youth policy objectives. 

    Please find here further information and an overview of KMST staff events.

  • TCA Planning Board

    Planning Board for the Training and Cooperation Activities of Erasmus+ Youth National Agencies and SALTO Resource Centres, and NET activities under the European Solidarity Corps.


    Below you will find information and documents supporting TCA and NET officers in the development and implementation of the Training and Cooperation Activity strategy (prior: Transnational Cooperation Activity) in general as well as for single activities in particular


    Below you can find a list of Frequently Asked Questions of NA staff about use of TCA and NET. The FAQ was developed by the TCA NET WG and will be further developed over time. Please be aware that most of the FAQs below are answered either in the Guide for National Agencies or in the TCA NET ALMANAC developed by the TCA/NET WG.

    • Please note: The former TCA WG transformed into the TCA/NET WG. This approach was already discussed by Head of NAs as a practical solution – most of the NET related practise will be taken from TCA. The TCA Almanac is currently under revision and will be ready in June for the TCA/NET officers meeting. If you have further questions please contact the TCA/NET WG
  • TCA/NET Meetings for E+: YiA & ESC

    The main aim of the annual TCA/NET Meetings is to support NAs in the development of TCA and NET. The meeting aims at developing understanding of the TCA & NET world and its wider context and the understanding and application of the purpose of TCA and NET. And the meeting supports NAs and SALTO RCs in the development of the annual workplans, in partnerships between NAs and with the SALTOs.

  • TCA/NET WG supports the network of NAs in the development of their TCA/NET strategies

    The TCA/NET Working Group cares for quality and management development of the Transnational Cooperation Activities (TCA) in Erasmus+ Youth in Action and Networking Activities under the European Solidarity Corps (NET).
