Worldwide stays abroad: VET establishments can prepare their learners, VET graduates, VET professionals or teaching staff at an international level. Those taking part in the mobility familiarise themselves with the work and training culture of other countries, and develop a path towards successful partnership beyond cultural differences. Besides language skills and project-related knowledge, they can also extend their learning about the other country. This creates lasting relationships between the learners from Switzerland and the foreign employers, which opens the door for further cooperation.
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.
