The benefits of being involved in such a study visit help to:

  • Facilitate and enhance learning that cannot be acquired within the UK
  • Inspire participants to share their experience in a European context with others
  • Motivate individuals and to support follow up on their experiences with further learning and development opportunities
  • Create opportunities for ongoing learning with European partners
  • Facilitate the sharing of the learning gained to a wider audience

Importantly, travel and subsistence was fully funded.
