The action aims at the support of transnational mobility of workers, selfemployed or people available for employment (including graduates) undergoing a training period abroad in a vocational training context.
The general objectives of this mobility action within Leonardo da Vinci sectoral programme are:
A transnational mobility for People in the Labour Market consists in a training placement for a period of vocational training and/or work experience undertaken by an individual participant in an enterprise or a training institution in another participating country. In case the training placement is done in a training institution, the link to the practical experience and to the training needs of the participant shall be clearly defined.
Individual participants will receive their grants within a mobility project organised by a coordinating organisation. They cannot directly apply for a grant to National Agencies.
Within the project, co-operation will exists between the sending institution and the host organisations, such as training institutions, VET schools or enterprises. Their respective roles and involvement in the different steps for implementation of the mobility activities have to be clearly defined, especially in case intermediary organisations are participating. Their quality can be assessed on the basis of past performance and the satisfaction of the beneficiary and participants in previous projects.
Applications are submitted to the National Agency of the sending country (country of the applicant organisation) and can only cover outgoing mobility, i.e. individual participants residing and/or enrolled and/or employed in the country of application moving to another participating country.
The beneficiary of the project grant, generally the coordinating institution, will have to ensure that the partners of this co-operation, including the intermediaries, meet the principles contained in the Quality Commitment :
