Mobility project for VET learners and staff

Organisations may apply for a VET learners and staff mobility projects in two ways:

  • Any eligible organisation may apply for funding for Mobility projects for VET learners and staff without the Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter
  • Organisation with a proven track record holding a valid Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter may use a fast-track procedure to apply for funding for Mobility projects for VET learners and staff Any eligible organisation may apply for funding for Mobility projects for VET learners and staff without the Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter Organisation with a proven track record holding a valid Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter may use a fast-track procedure to apply for funding for Mobility projects for VET learners and staff with the Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter the Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter

The eligibility and award criteria for these two application modalities are described in the relevant sections of this Action.

ErasmusPro: support for Long-term Mobility of VET learners or recent graduates

In December 2016, the Communication "Investing in Europe's Youth" launched "ErasmusPro", a policy initiative aimed at increasing long-term mobility abroad, for Vocational Education and Training learners, including apprentices or recent graduates. ErasmusPro responds to calls by the European Parliament, as well as companies, and other VET stakeholders, to increase the quality, the attractiveness, and the employability of VET learners through long-term work placements abroad.

VET mobility has a clear value in helping young people open up their minds, widen their social, professional and transversal skills, develop a taste for innovation and initiative and a sense of European citizenship. It is a means to improve the overall performance of the organisations (both VET providers and companies) involved in such practices, by developing sustained internationalisation strategies, while also helping business find the right skills they need to increase their competitiveness. Long-term placements abroad have a higher added value for learners in terms of developing job specific skills and an even better acquaintance with the foreign language, culture and work environment, thus boosting their employability.

A VET mobility project can comprise one or more of the following activities:

Learners' mobility:

  • Mobility in VET providers and/or companies abroad, from 2 weeks to less than 3 months;
  • Long-term mobility in VET providers and/or companies abroad (ErasmusPro), from 3 to 12 months.

These activities are open to VET learners (including apprentices) in vocational training organisations (VET providers). To strengthen the employability of VET learners and to facilitate their transition to the labour market, recent graduates (less than 12 months after graduation), can also participate in these activities. Activities can take the form of full work placements with learners hosted in a company or other relevant organisation, or at a VET provider (a school, institute or other organisation providing vocational education and training) offering a combination of school based learning and a strong work-based component (work placements). In the case of long-term mobilities (ErasmusPro), while the host body can be a VET provider, the activity should have a clear work-based learning component – usually in the form of a work placement in a company.

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

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

In the framework of ErasmusPro activities, short "Advance Planning Visits" (APV) of staff from sending to hosting organisations (VET providers and/or companies) may be funded in order to facilitate interinstitutional cooperation, better prepare the mobilities and ensure their high quality.

 

Staff mobility:

  • Teaching/training assignments: this activity allows staff of VET providers to teach at a partner VET provider abroad. It also allows staff of companies to provide training at a VET provider 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 a company or any other VET provider.

Erasmus+ supports learning mobility of staff that:

  • is framed into a strategic approach of the participating organisations (aimed at modernising and internationalising 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 recognised and ensures that the learning outcomes are disseminated and widely used within the organisation.

These activities are also an opportunity for VET staff to gain competences in addressing the needs of learners with disadvantaged backgrounds. Given the current context concerning young migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, particular attention will be also given to support projects that train VET staff in such areas as training refugee children, intercultural classrooms, teaching youngsters in their second language, classroom tolerance and diversity.

What is the role of organisations participating in this project?

Participating organisations involved in the mobility project assume the following roles and tasks:

  • Applicant organisation: in charge of applying for the mobility project, signing and managing the grant agreement and reporting. The applicant can be a consortium coordinator: leading a national mobility consortium of partner organisations of the same country aimed at sending VET learners and staff to activities abroad. The national mobility consortium coordinator can also – but not necessarily – act as sending organisation.
  • Sending organisation: in charge of selecting VET learners/staff and sending them abroad.
  • Receiving organisation: in charge of receiving foreign VET learners/staff and offering them a programme of activities, or benefiting from a training activity provided by VET staff.
  • Intermediary organisation: this is an organisation active in the labour market or in the fields of education, training and youth which is not a sending organisation, but whose expertise allows it to assist the sending VET providers with administrative procedures, practical arrangements, matching apprentice/learner profiles with the needs of companies in case of traineeships, and preparing the participants. If the intermediary organisation is a partner in a national mobility consortium, its contribution must be clearly described as part of the project application. In case the intermediary organisation is not a part of a national mobility consortium, applicant organisations are strongly advised to formally define a set of rights and obligations when cooperating with such intermediary organisations.

The sending and receiving organisations, together with the learners/staff, must have agreed on the activities to be undertaken by the learners - in a 'Learning Agreement' - or by staff members - in a 'Mobility Agreement' - prior to the start of the mobility period. These agreements define the target learning outcomes for the learning period abroad, specify the formal recognition provisions and list the rights and obligations of each party.

VET learners going on mobility for 19 days or longer are eligible to receive a linguistic support. Online linguistic support is being gradually implemented in the course of the Programme. It is made available by the European Commission to eligible participants to assess their foreign language competences and to offer, where necessary, the most appropriate language learning before and/or during mobility (for more details, see Annex I of this Guide).

What accreditation do applicants need for this mobility project?

The Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter

The Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter aims to improve European internationalisation strategies in the field of VET and to make them more sustainable, thus enhancing the quality and quantity of transnational VET mobility. Calls for awarding the VET Mobility Charter are published annually on National Agencies' websites.

The acquirement of a VET Mobility Charter gives the VET Mobility Charter holders the possibility to apply in a simplified way under the Erasmus+ Key Action 1 mobility for VET learners and staff.
