WHAT ARE ERASMUS+ KEY ACTION 1 (KA1) LEARNING MOBILITIES?

Key Action 1 supports mobility in the education, training and youth sectors and aims to bring long lasting benefits to the participants and the organisations involved.

Students, teachers and all staff  in charge of school education in primary schools, secondary school and higher education (also vocational education and training, schools for adult education and youth) can apply for funding to run mobility projects to offer training and/or teaching opportunities to staff and learners.

The European Parliament has already announced that funds for the next Erasmus+ programme will be tripled to allow more people to participate. One of the next generation of the Erasmus+ programme is for more young people to participate in the various learning mobility programmes, with measures to remove all economic, social and cultural barriers. Promimpresa’s staff of professionals will be able to respond to the project needs of the 2021-27 programme thanks to decades of experience.

Who can participate? 

Students

High school and vocational training centre students may participate from the first year of the course until 12 months after obtaining the diploma or qualification.

There are two activities covered by the programme:

  • periods of study abroad in institutions comparable to the home institution
  • internship period abroad in companies operating in the field of the student’s study path

The activities can be carried out for periods of a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 12 months.

During periods of mobility the student acquires both technical-professional skills specific to the course of study and transversal skills.

Depending on the course of study, the student will improve the operation of the profession they intend to undertake, learning procedures and best practices to excel and make a difference both during the school period and at the end of their studies, thus facilitating their entry into the world of work. Experience abroad is a fundamental requirement to increase professional value and broaden job prospects. Students will learn to be autonomous and self-manage themselves abroad, improving their communication skills in the following languages English. The program fully funds the student’s mobility by covering travel,individual support (board, lodging and local transport during the mobility based on the cost of living in the destination country and the days of stay), special needs and accompanying persons (if adequately motivated), organisational support (expenses for insurance coverage, monitoring of participants, their selection and pedagogical, intercultural and linguistic preparation, validation of learning outcomes, dissemination activities), exceptional costs adequately motivated.
