MOBILITY FOR LEARNERS AND STAFF IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING
This action supports providers of vocational education and training (VET) and other organisations active in the field of VET that want to organise learning mobility activities for VET learners and staff.
A wide range of activities are supported, including job shadowing and professional development courses for staff, traineeships and long-term placements (ErasmusPro), invited experts, and other activities.
The participating organisations should actively promote inclusion and diversity, environmental sustainability and digital education through their activities: by using the specific funding opportunities provided by the Programme for these purposes, by raising awareness among their participants, by sharing best practices, and by choosing appropriate design for their activities.
HOW TO ACCESS ERASMUS+ MOBILITY OPPORTUNITIES?
VET providers and other organisations active in vocational education and training can apply for funding in two ways:
• Short–term projects for mobility of learners and staff – these projects provide applicants with an opportunity to organise various mobility activities over a period of six to eighteen months. Short–term projects are the best choice for organisations applying for Erasmus+ for the first time, or for those that wish to organise only a limited number of activities.
• Accredited projects for mobility of learners and staff – these projects are open only to organisations holding an Erasmus accreditation in the field of vocational education and training. This special funding strand allows accredited organisations to regularly receive funding for mobility activities that contribute to the gradual implementation of their Erasmus Plan. Erasmus accreditations are open to all organisations that want to organise mobility activities on a regular basis. Previous experience in the Programme is not required to apply.
