Participating in the international pilot programme, vocational training institutions have the opportunity to expand their networks and cooperation beyond European borders, thus creating a dynamic working environment. This program therefore supports pilot projects that aim to establish long-term relationships with foreign countries and focus on the following two elements:
Innovation: the project is innovative in its content, its theme, its planning or its impact or the dissemination of its results but can also propose new features in terms of the form of the project, its partnerships, its structure, etc.
The added value for the Swiss education system: the project is part of the Swiss education system and makes it possible to develop it further. For example, by promoting the exchange and integration of different national language regions or by generating models replicable in other institutions.
Vocational schoools, professional associations, cantonal vocational training offices, enterprises and other swiss institutions related to vocational training (public or private) can financially be supported by Movetia. Institutions can apply individually or as a consortium. Individuals are not eligible to apply.
From 2019 onwards, a two-stage application process will apply. Applicants must submit a project outline by January 31, 2019. You will receive our decision early March. If the decision is positive, you can apply for a grant until 31 May 2019.
Funding: Movetia assumes up to a maximum of 60% of the project costs. The cost ceiling is CHF 50,000 per year. The project must not already be funded by Erasmus+ grants. An existing agreement between the institutions taking part (schools / companies / other) is a precondition to secure funding.
Consultation: Moreover, Movetia is pleased to support establishments with regard to questions, from the inception of the project up to its completion.
Deadline for the project outline: 31 January 2019
Deadline for the grant after qualification: 31 may 2019
