The network “European Regions Enhancing Internationalisation in Vocational Education and Training“(EREIVET) has the objective to enhance quantity and quality of learning mobility in vocational education and training.
Das Netzwerk "Europäische Regionen steigern die Internationalisierung der beruflichen Bildung" hat zum Ziel, Qualität und Quantität von Lernmobilität zu erhöhen.
Le réseau "Régions Européennes pour le Développement de l'Ouverture à l'international dans l'Education et la Formation Professionnelles" (EREIVET) vise à développer et à améliorer l'apprentissage en mobilité dans le champ de l'éducation et la formation professionnelles.
Summary Mobility, recognition of vocational degrees, transparency in vocational education and training, the cooperation between different partners in vocational education and training are main aims of the Copenhagen process which is subsumed under EU2020 Strategy. In this project 15 partners from 12 countries are cooperating to develop a common strategy to enhance learning mobility in VET in quantity and quality, one of the most appropriate measures for the internationalisation of VET. One important objective is to bring the transparency instruments Europass and ECVET, which were established in the course of the Copenhagen process, directly into the classrooms. Another topic of the cooperation will be the EQF and the corresponding national qualification frameworks and especially the shift towards a learning outcome approach for describing qualifications. Learning mobility, i. e. transnational mobility for the purpose of acquiring new skills, is one of the fundamental ways in which individuals, particularly young people, can strengthen their future employability as well as their personal development. To achieve these aims, partners are needed who are able to implement all the instruments and who can achieve the aims proposed by the European Commission and Council. Within this network the participating organisations take an active role in this process. Members of the network are: - Regional school authorities - Associations of vocational schools of one region - Vocational schools with a regional network they are representing all in all, the network is representing 1908 schools with VET, 49803 teachers and 829200 students and apprentices in initial VET. Most of the partners of the network have a wide range of experience with learning mobility.
Description The network exists since 2009 with an increasing number of partners. All partners are responsible for vocational schools as public authorities or are a vocational school with a network in the background. That facilitates a very effective partnersearch for transnational projects. The network is able to supply the vocational schools of the participating region with e. g. information about the other school systems. The network supports the vocational schools of the participating regions with advisory service about the European programms and the European policies for VET e. g. ECVET and wants to introduce the vocational schools into these important themes. The network will flank the cooperation with other projects, e. g. VETPRO projects for teachers and trainers.

March 2013: Kick-off in Marseille. Main topic: establishing working groups to describe learning outcomes which can be acquired in internships abroad.
September 2013: Meeting in Tekirdag for the coordinators. Main topic: European policies for VET and how to transmit them into the vocational schools.
April 2013 - April 2014: Three working groups in the sectors "international trade", "health care" and "Electrician" will meet two times to define the learning outcomes which can be acquired during internships abroad.
April 2014: Conference in North-Trondelag with the working groups and coordinators to present the results and to plan the steps implementing the results of the working groups into mobility projects.
September 2014: Meeting in Andalusia. Main topics: Evaluation and generating of new mobility projects.
January 2015: Conference in Düsseldorf. Main topic: Quality in learning mobility.
June 2015: Meeting of the coordinators in Jamtland. Main topic: Evaluation and collecting of results; planning of the next steps (sutainability of the network).
September 2015: Conference in Lower Saxony to diesseminate the network and its result.
The network will develop material for the vocational schools to support them withtransnational partners, information, guidance and projects. The working groups will develop manuals for describing learning outcomes, a condition for transparency and mutual recognition in VET.
