ESA Education develops several different activities to support the integration of the space topic in the classroom, at primary and secondary levels.
For teachers, ESA provides regular teacher training workshops at their facilities in ESTEC, the Netherlands, and in the e-Technology Lab, ESEC - Galaxia, in Belgium. The workshops are open to teachers from all ESA Member and Associate States.

ESA also provides support for teachers at national level through the ESERO network. A key objective of ESA's ESERO project is to provide teacher training courses based on space-related resources adapted to the national curricula. This is achieved either by introducing ESA material to existing courses or by developing and delivering original courses including hands-on experiments. Such endeavours are performed in collaboration with appropriate national partners. When possible, the courses are officially accredited Continual Professional Development (CPD) courses.
