Education for Travelling Children


Working closely together with the European Network for Traveller Education (ENTE), the European Circus Association promotes an adequate education for the children of travelling circuses. This includes developing and supporting e-learning and distance learning projects as well as setting up mobile schools specializing in the education of children in traveling circuses.

Vocational training is offered by several circus schools in Europe. In addition to training of typical circus skills and the preparation of new acts, certain schools also offer professional trainings for circus staff such as riggers or other technical specialists. The European Circus Association collaborates with the European Federation of Circus Schools (FEDEC) in support of these schools.
