Pilot Project 2016 on long-term mobility for apprentices: A European framework for mobility of apprentices: Developing European citizenship and skills through youth integration in the labour market VP/2016/010 Closed!

Objectives

El objetivo final de esta convocatoria es que los jóvenes aprendices desarrollen sus habilidades y mejorar sus perspectivas de empleabilidad, a la vez que reforzar su sentimiento de ciudadanía europea. Esto se realizará  pruebando diferentes enfoques para la puesta en marcha de la infraestructura, así como los marcos institucionales y contractuales (por ejemplo, el desarrollo de las estructuras de servicios para la organización de los viajes y alojamiento, cursos de idiomas, acuedos de aprendizaje, paquetes prácticos de información de bienvenida, métodos de coaching, pólizas de seguros) necesarias para organizar las estancias de los aprendices desde su salida hasta su  vuelta.


Tres objetivos principales guiarán las acciones que se desarrollarán a través de los proyectos financiados. En primer lugar, se probará si existe suficiente demanda e implicanción entre las partes interesadas relevantes para el desarrollo de esquemas transnacionales de estancias de movilidad para aprendices a largo plazo (6-12 meses). En segundo lugar, los proyectos tratarán de identificar los obstáculos (legales, prácticos, institucionales, académicas ...) que impiden que los aprendices puedan realizar estancias a más largo plazo en el extranjero. Por último, se estraerán conclusiones para a difundir las buenas prácticas y los factores de éxito en las estancias de trabajo a largo plazo de los aprendices.

Actions

Projects should implement at least the following activities:

  1. Prepare and organise apprenticeship trainings for VET learners of a minimum duration of 6 consecutive months and a maximum of 12 which will take place abroad in a Member State of the European Union
  2. Identify the candidates for the placement in accordance with the needs of the hosting enterprises and the skills possessed by the apprentices
  3. Organise induction/welcome sessions and language courses as preparation for, and part of, the apprenticeship experience in the host country
  4. Design and develop detailed learning agreements for the work placements of the apprentices, including relevant curricular content with clear learning outcomes
  5. Put in place specific activities to facilitate youth integration in the host location thus fostering a sense of European citizenship among the apprentices
  6. Ensure that an enterprise or group of enterprises (SMEs or other) is ready and prepared to host and train the apprentices for the entire duration of their stay
  7. The project should carry out a thorough assessment and evaluation at different stages of the placement experience, allowing for the identification of success and enabling factors to:
    • the participation of companies and apprentices regarding long-term placements;
    • the integration of long-term mobility experiences in another EU Member State into apprenticeship curricula and the validation and recognition of its learning outcomes, in specific sectors and VET fields;
    • the identification of outstanding obstacles to long-term mobility of apprentices across EU borders
    • the experience of the apprentices’ stay abroad (namely: preparation, accompaniment, integration, relevance of the training and skills acquired, sense of European citizenship, foreign language development, quality of the teaching and learning environment including testimonies by the apprentices themselves) and foresee feed-back mechanisms to the Commission.
