Erasmus+ programme aims to modernise and develope the Education, Training, Youth work, and Sport, to boost skills and employability. The programme will significantly increase investments to the human development.

Erasmus+ brings together a number of 2007-2013 EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth (the Lifelong Learning Programme, The Youth in Action Programme, The Erasmus Mundus Programme, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink, Programmes of cooperation with industrialized countries in the field of higher education). As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the Education, Training, Youth, and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules.

The international dimension of the programme (i.e. cooperation with Partner Countries) focuses on higher education, with some cooperation opportunities in the field of youth. In higher education, two actions (Joint Master Degrees and Jean Monnet) are financed from the EU internal budget, while two actions (“credit” mobility and capacity building) are funded from the external instruments (ENI, IPA, DCI and PI).

In Kazakhstan, the Erasmus+ programme (formerly Tempus) operates since 1995. The National Coordinator of the Program in Kazakhstan is Tasbulatova Shaizada Umurzakovna.
