Call detail

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 as explained below. 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.

Accredited projects for mobility of learners and staff 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.

To find out more about this opportunity, please read the chapter in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide on Erasmus accreditation in the fields of adult education, vocational education and training, and school education.

Activities to be funded under this topic:

Most types of available activities are outgoing mobility activities. This means that the applicant organisation will act as a sending organisation: it will select participants and send them to a hosting organisation abroad. In addition, there are special types of activities that allow applicant organisations to invite experts, teachers and educators in training to their organisation. The purpose of incoming activities is not to create two-way exchanges, but rather to bring in persons who can help develop and internationalise the applicant organisation.

For a detailed list of activities and rules, see section ’Activities’ on page 86 of the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.

Eligibility

Organisations holding a valid Erasmus accreditation in vocational education and training are eligible to apply.  

Budget

The quality of the applicant’s Erasmus Plan has been assessed at the accreditation application stage and therefore no qualitative assessment will take place at budget allocation stage. Any eligible grant application will receive funding.  

The awarded grant amount will depend on a number of elements:  

  • the total budget available for allocation to accredited applicants
  • the requested activities
  • the basic and maximum grant
  • the following allocation criteria: financial performance, qualitative performance, policy priorities, and geographical balance (if applied by the National Agency)  

Detailed rules on basic and maximum grant, scoring of the allocation criteria, weighting of each criterion, the allocation method and, the budget available for accredited projects will be published by the National Agency ahead of the call deadline.

Project duration

All accredited projects will have an initial duration of 15 months. After 12 months, all beneficiaries will have the possibility to prolong their project to a total duration of 24 months.
