An Accompanying Person is

A person who accompanies participants (learners, staff, young people or youth workers) in a mobility activity in order to ensure their safety, provide support and assistance, as well as assist with the participant’s effective learning during the mobility experience. In individual activities, an accompanying person may accompany participants with fewer opportunities or minors and youngsters with little experience outside their own country. In case of group activities in the field of education and training, qualified education staff must accompany the group to facilitate the learning process.

In Beneficiary projects, check the Accompanying Person flag to indicate that a participant in an activity (i.e. mobility activity, group activity, participations, events, etc.) is considered an accompanying person. 

A participant flagged as Accompanying person cannot be a participant with fewer opportunities at the same time.
