Vocational Education Training.

First, since 2017 we have been supporting learning mobilities of VET students in our region. In this context, we developed a support and integration programme that aids soft skill development of VET students. These programmes main methods are non-formal education, applicable learning situations, and a peer-to-peer approach reducing any hierarchical barriers to learning.

Erasmus+ supports the professional development of people working in vocational education and training (VET) through training periods abroad.

Training periods can be work placements or job shadowing or observation periods at a VET institution or another relevant organisation based in an Erasmus+ Programme country.

Examples of such organisations include businesses, public bodies, social partners, research institutes and non-governmental organisations.

Before beginning your training, you, your institution and the receiving institution or organisation make a Mobility Agreement. This document sets out your learning goals, rights and responsibilities and also how your training will be formally recognised.

  • Conditions

    To train abroad with Erasmus+, your institution must be part of a VET mobility project with another institution or organisation.

  • Duration

    A training assignment must last a minimum of two days and cannot last more than two months. This excludes travelling time.

  • Financial support

    EU grants are designed to cover your costs for travel and subsistence during your time abroad, as well as offering organisational support to participating institutions.

    Though EU-funded, grants are managed by the VET institutions involved and they are responsible for making payments to individuals.

  • How to apply

    You cannot apply for a grant as an individual. Applications must be made by VET institutions who in turn select candidates for training assignments abroad from their staff.
