About

A new world of opportunity

Taith is a new programme enabling people in Wales to study, train, volunteer and work all over the world, while allowing organisations in Wales to invite international partners and learners to do the same here in Wales.

It will create opportunities to broaden horizons, experience new ways of life, and bring back lessons to share with people at home.

It means that Wales and its international partners can continue to benefit from exchanges in a similar way to the opportunities that flowed from Erasmus+, both in Europe and further afield.

Creating 25,000 opportunities for learning

The programme will run from 2022 to 2026, supported by an investment of £65m from Welsh Government.

We aim to fund 15,000 people from Wales to go on exchanges over the first four years, with 10,000 people from all over the world coming to study, train, volunteer or work in Wales.

We’re inviting the world to Wales

Hosting people in Wales will be a fundamental principle of the programme, with funding available to welcome learners, volunteers and staff from partner organisations around the world.

As our visitors, you will enrich our education and youth sectors with new approaches and ideas, bringing even greater diversity and culture to our communities, classrooms and campuses.

These two-way flows will allow us to grow partnerships built up under Erasmus+ and help us develop new ones.
