Recognition

Europemobility Network aims to support the European Commission in implementing the Action Plan of the Bruges Communiqué. In this context, recognition plays a prevalent role, especially concerning European transparency tools such as Europass, the European Qualification Framework, the European Credit System for VET (ECVET) and the European Quality Assurance Reference Framework for VET (EQAVET). These are reflected in the strategic objectives 4 and 8: “Developing a strategic approach to the internationalisation of I-VET and C-VET and promoting international mobility” and “Coordinated governance of European and national instruments in the area of transparency, recognition, quality assurance and mobility” Another aspect of the Communiqué is the promotion of “equity, social cohesion and active citizenship” (p.15). Since Europemobility supports a transversal approach to learning, which includes the VET but also the higher and non-formal education sector, the link between formal and non-formal learning and especially the recognition of skills and competences acquired through non- and informa...

Funding Schemes

Thematic Commission on Funding Schemes aims at involving and influencing relevant stakeholders in the field of private and public funding for learning mobility. The workshops are an opportunity to get feedback from experts in this field, at the same time they are an opportunity to involve and influence important stakeholders, who play a role in cross sector partnerships among educational sectors, educational providers and business world. The stakeholders target groups are both from VET, higher education and the non formal training sector as well as those representing the private banking system. The aim is to set up a discussion with the relevant stakeholder in this field and derive information from their perspective. The workshop should contribute to observations and recommendations about how to organize better the funding on learning mobility, improving the cooperation between European, national and local fund, as well as between public and private sector. During the workshops, where relevant and possible, brief interviews with stakeholders will be carried out in order to clarify st...

Quality

In the first year the Thematic Commission on Quality made a desk research to collect good practices from different educational sectors in the field of quality assurance in learning mobility. For each case of good practice a fact sheet was compiled. Based on the results the “Quality Observatory & Toolbox” was created, which shows good practices related to specific quality criteria, methodologies as well as indicators for quality assurance. Additionally, the information is clustered and assigned to the four phases of the EQAVET framework: Plan, Implement, Evaluate, and Review. The “Quality Observatory & Toolbox” with its related information of the fact sheets enables users to identify existing initiatives and choose those elements that are relevant for their context. Organizations which would like to set up mobility for learners can use the toolbox as a starting point to get a condensed overview about relevant elements of quality assurance in mobility and could be inspired by the criteria, methods, indicators and tools of the toolbox. A second step was the formation of the “Be...
