Title EuropaMobilität für alle
Project Number 2011-1-SE1-LEO05-8369
Project Type Innovationstransfer
Marketing Text Im europäischen Ausland zu arbeiten, kann ihnen eine ganz neue Perspektive auf das Leben geben. Durch dieses Projekt, möchten wir junge Menschen motivieren und stärken, so dass sie im Ausland Praktikumserfahrungen sammeln können. Der Schwerpunkt des Projektes liegt dabei auf Jugendlichen, die bisher in Mobilitätsprogramme unterrepräsentiert sind (Jugendliche mit schlechtem Schulabschluss, ohne Arbeit etc.).
Das Projekt hat folgendene Ziele:
die Zahl von benachteiligten Jugendlichen, die im europäischen Ausland ein Praktikum absolvieren, zu erhöhen;
ein Netzwerk für Mobilität aufzubauen;
ein angepasstes Modell für die Vorbereitung, Durchführung und Auswertung der Arbeit im Ausland zu entwickeln
Since the late 1980ies, the European Commission has grant-aided transnational mobility for young people in initial vocational education and training (IVET) – initially with the Petra programme and later through the Leonardo da Vinci and the Lifelong Learning Programme. Furthermore the Youth in Action Programme is an important instrument by the European Commission to support transnational mobility in the context of non-formal learning.
Despite these efforts, however, young people with fewer opportunities (with a low qualification level, who are unemployed or who have a low income job) are still absolutely underrepresented in these mobility programmes and in measures promoting stays abroad for learning and qualifying purposes. Hence, many political recommendations and initiatives, like the Green Paper: Promoting the Learning Mobility of Young People (2009), the 2010 launched EU Flagship Initiative 'Youth on the move', as well as the focus and the aims of the current EU programmes, say that it is of particular interest to promote the disadvantaged target groups. Research show that in the case of young people with fewer opportunities staying abroad contributes extraordinarily to broaden their social skills and it has a great impact on improving their employability and integration in the labour market. But the access to and the conditions for transnational mobility must be modified and better adjusted to this target group. If the general condition and supporting instruments, such as assistance, training, recognition etc. are tailored for the target group, the number and the quality of mobility might increase. Hence, the focus of EuropeMobility for all is rather on mobility opportunities for young people with fewer opportunities and how to get professionals working in the VET system (teachers, trainers etc.) and young people informed, motivated and accompanied in the context of transnational mobility. The project will lead to give unemployed young adults opportunities to expand their job-related experiences and to acquire professional skills in other EU countries with the aim to be integrated in the labour market.
In order to reach young people with fewer opportunities the project partners have developed an information package for practitioners working with young people and young people themselves to promote learning mobility. Further so called mobility fairs have been/ will be organised in order to bring together the target institutions, such as schools, educational and training institutions to promote mobility and to raise awareness on benefits, funding opportunities and good practices.
