Mobility project for VET learners and staff

                 

Learners' mobility:

·         a VET traineeship abroad for up to 12 months.

This activity is open to both apprentices and students in vocational training schools. These learners undertake a vocational training placement in another country. Learners are hosted either at a workplace (in an enterprise or other relevant organization) or at a VET school (with periods of work-based learning in an enterprise or other relevant organization).

Each mobility activity is set within a quality framework previously agreed upon by the sending and receiving organizations to ensure a high level of quality for the activity, including a "Learning Agreement".

The learning outcomes are formally recognized and validated at an institutional level, course contents are adapted as necessary to ensure that the mobility period abroad fits well with the course in which the apprentice/VET student is enrolled.

In order to strengthen the employability of young people and to facilitate their transition to the labour market, recent graduates from VET schools or companies providing VET to apprentices can participate in this activity as well.

 Staff mobility:

·         teaching/training assignments: this activity allows staff of VET schools to teach at a partner VET school abroad. It also allows staff of enterprises to provide training at a VET organization abroad.

·         staff training: this activity supports the professional development of VET staff in the form of a work placement or a job shadowing/observation period abroad in an enterprise or any other VET organization.

Erasmus+ supports learning mobility of staff that:

·         is framed into a strategic approach of the participating organizations (aimed at modernizing and internationalizing their mission);

·         responds to clearly identified staff development needs and is accompanied by appropriate selection, preparation and follow-up measures;

·         ensures that the learning outcomes of participating staff are properly recognized and ensures that the learning outcomes are disseminated and widely used within the organization.

These activities are also an opportunity for VET staff to gain competences in addressing the needs of learners with disadvantaged backgrounds.
