MOBILITY PROJECT FOR VET LEARNERS

 

Learners' mobility:

Find More: Erasmus+ VET Experiences (Students Reports)

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 organisation) or at a VET school (with periods of work-based learning in an enterprise or other relevant organisation).

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 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.

 

Online Linguistic Support

VET learners undertaking a mobility activity lasting one month or longer are eligible to receive linguistic support prior to departure or during the mobility activity. In this regard, the Commission makes available an online service for selected VET learners, with a view to assess their competence in the language they will use to carry out their traineeships abroad. This service also offers them, where necessary, the possibility to improve the knowledge of the language before and/or during the mobility period. Such an online service will be gradually implemented in the course of the Programme.

 

Accompanying Persons

VET learners with special needs or disadvantaged backgrounds may be accompanied by a person that will support them during the mobility period. The involvement of the accompanying person should be proportional to the number of learners involved (usually one accompanying person per group of learners carrying out a traineeship in the same receiving organisation).
