Summary Although there are no exhaustive figures on mobility in IVT, the number of apprentices undertaking training in another Member State is nonetheless estimated at 1% on average, even if the number of opportunities for mobility doubled between 2002 and 2005 thanks to the European Commission’s incentive policy. An in-depth study (Move it) has identified several obstacles to mobility, including legal or administrative problems, the need for advice and support in managing applications, and the drawing up of legally viable training agreements taking into account the legislation of the home and the host countries. We have tried to remove this obstacle in previous pilot (reference) projects aimed at developing such agreements: COMAAE in 10 countries and European Mobility agreements in IVT in 4 countries. The European Mobility project has moreover led us to develop a Website by way of experiment comprising a “European mobility agreement customizer” which enables all the mobility stakeholders to work out personal agreements from agreements approved by the competent authorities in the home and host countries. So the purpose of our project is to transfer this approach so as to be able to generate/have such personal agreements for a large number of sectors in all EU countries and to make them available on our website. The established partnership relies on the competent institutions for these aspects in each country and in so doing makes it possible to work under optimal legal conditions. The site will be updated gradually as the documents are approved, and then regularly after 2 years of work so as to perpetuate the tool. A serious impediment to mobility will thus be removed, as the target groups will be able to find pertinent practical information on our site and draw up reliable agreements that correspond to their own situation. These will not be “European” agreements but rather customised agreements that make it possible to make such arrangements as necessary with the competent authorities of both (home and host) countries, or even to renounce hazardous mobility undertakings. This project, which will therefore remove a serious obstacle to IVT mobility by reassuring all stakeholders about the legal and administrative aspects, will comply with the principle of subsidiarity and the distribution of competencies between the Union and the Member States. The number of opportunities for mobility should increase and their quality should be enhanced significantly.
Our project aims to transfer the results of 2 pilot projects (COMAAE and European Mobility) to 21 partner countries.
We shall thus develop
- Mobility agreements for apprentices and other young people in IVT
- A platform dedicated to promoting and making these tools available
towards all stakeholders: apprentices and young people in IVT, companies, schools, training institutions
in all sectors.
