Circus++ is a three-year project (2019-2022) in which universities and circus schools from five partner countries are developing a curriculum for the first Europe-wide training programme in youth and social circus pedagogy.

The project produces the very first research based European full-degree curriculum of 180 ECTS in EQF level 6 of Youth and Social Circus Pedagogy with five national implementation plans to respond both to the shortage of the professionals and qualitative needs. It is possible for the future students either to carry out the studies in one European country or construct the whole study programme by choosing the suitable modules from the European offer. The programme includes a model for validation of prior formal, non formal and informal learning and a model for a personal study plan that supports both employability and mobility in Europe. The programme is free of charge and available for all those universities and social circus schools who would like expand and deepen their work into  youth and social circus or take advantage of it in their social or educational activities. 

Circus+ is a partnership project between universities and circus schools from five partner countries, Tampere University, Sorin Sirkus, Stockholm University of Arts, Cirkus Cirkör, Le Plus Petit Cirque du Monde, National University of Ireland Galway, Galway Community Circus, CIRQUEON and Caravan.

Circus++ is funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union
