The Annual ECVET Forum 2018 will be dedicated to the topic of ‘Using ECVET for long duration mobility’. In 2017, the Commission launched ‘ErasmusPro’, a new dedicated activity within the Erasmus+ programme to support long-duration (3-12 months) mobility, in particular placements of apprentices abroad. ErasmusPro will open up the possibility for 50,000 additional young people to spend at least 3 months of their training in another Member State in the period 2017-2020.
The Annual ECVET Forum 2018 will be a place for discussion and exchange on mobility, ECVET and ErasmusPro, and will also serve as a networking event.
- The first day will be dedicated to discussing the topic of long-duration mobility, its main challenges and success factors, and how ECVET principles can help;
- The 2nd day of the Forum will be dedicated to networking between employers, NAs and VET providers interested in long duration mobility in a ‘Project Incubator’.
