Getting work experience abroad is a significant factor in professional and personal development. Especially in the context of a European labour market that requires flexibility and intercultural knowledge, participation in mobility projects offers a unique chance for young people.
In recent years the European Commission has supported mobility in many ways, by introducing the free movement of workers and systems that allow greater transparency in qualifications between countries (ECVET). Funding possibilities like "Leonardo da Vinci Mobility" or, from 2014 onwards, "Erasmus+" allow people in initial vocational training in the labour market as well as teachers and trainers to get further qualifications abroad. But nevertheless there are still obstacles that hinder people in going abroad or problems occur during the placement.
The main objective of this project, funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme (2012-2014) & Erasmus+ programme (2015-2018), is to transfer an innovative approach concerning quality in mobility in order to foster and facilitate the participation of trainees and persons in the labor market in European Mobility projects and to set common standards for end users.
