Within the framework of mobility projects, teachers and other school staff can undertake further training, job shadowings and teaching activities in other European countries. Learning stays by pupils are also supported.
The International Mobility School Education Programme gives teachers, other educational staff and pupils from Switzerland the opportunity to improve their skills at schools in other countries. To strenghten cooperation between schools, learning visits in Switzerland by pupils from other countries are also supported. It is also possible to select external specialists (Invited Experts) and ask them to visit Swiss institutions. The objective is to develop quality and promote innovation at Swiss schools as well as to encourage teachers and pupils to be open and receptive to the social, linguistic and cultural diversity.

Funding for mobility projects is generally based on flat-rate amounts for travel, subsistence (costs of stay), organisation and course costs. Grants are also paid for language preparation and additional costs due to special needs.
