The Comenius programme is a programme established by the European Union aimed at bringing students and teachers in different European countries together. The target group is young people aged 14-19 as well as teachers with extensive experience in their teaching subject. It is named after the educationist Comenius.
Funding is given one-year projects aimed at bringing European students, from different countries, together and to help European students have a better understanding of their own country as well as the other countries involved in the project.
Students aged between 14 and 19 are welcome to join the project. In England, the project is more commonly available to sixth formers. Every year, a new project begins, and every year there are two meetings.
