MOBILITY PROJECT FOR VET STAFF

 

Staff mobility:

  • 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 organisation.

 

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.

 

The sending and receiving organisations, together with the staff, must have agreed on the activities to be undertaken 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.
