Education, training and youth activities play a key role in providing people of all ages with the necessary means to participate actively in the labor market and in society at large. Projects under this Action promote transnational mobility activities targeting learners (students, trainees, apprentices, young people and volunteers), and staff (professors, teachers, trainers, youth workers, and people working in organizations active in the education, training and youth fields) and aiming to:


  • support learners in the acquisition of competences (knowledge, skills and attitudes) with a view to improving their personal development and employability in the European labor market and beyond;
  • support the professional development of those who work in education, training and youth with a view to innovating and improving the quality of teaching, training and youth work across Europe;
  • enhance notably the participants' foreign languages competence;
  • raise participants' awareness and understanding of other cultures and countries, offering them the opportunity to build networks of international contacts, to actively participate in society and develop a sense of European citizenship and identity;
  • increase the capacities, attractiveness and international dimension of organisations active in the education, training and youth fields so that they are able to offer activities and programmes that better respond to the needs of individuals, within and outside Europe;
  • reinforce synergies and transitions between formal, non-formal education, vocational training, employment and entrepreneurship;
  • ensure a better recognition of competences gained through the learning periods abroad.
