Learner Mobility

As a founding member of WorldSkills, in Portugal Intituto do Emprego e Formação Profissional (Employment and Professional Training Institute, hereafter IEFP) is the entity responsible for promoting and holding the International WorldSkills.

WSI uses leading-edge web and software technologies to provide its Members and global audience with easy access to current information on skills standards, competition events and specialist discussion forums.

WSI operates a wide-ranging programme of activity to fulfill its mission. The core activity of this programme is the WorldSkills Competition.

It is the biggest skills Competition in the world and is held every two years, over four days, in one of its Member countries/regions, and it is the chance to test and compare country’s/region’s training system against that of others and ensure that education and training strategies meet the economic and business demands of a modern society.

May compete individuals between 17 to 25 years old. Competitors are entitled to food, accommodation and transport; equal treatment in the conduct of examinations; technical, physical and human resources required for the proof preparation; medal and diploma, in case of competitors entitled to the podium, and certificate of participation for others.

Following on from the introduction of the Erasmus+ programme in Portugal, the National Erasmus+ Education and Training Agency (2014-2020) became the managing entity of the School Education, Professional Education and Training and Higher Education areas. These are covered by both KA1 – Mobility for learning purposes, and KA2 – Strategic partnerships.

In the context of adult education, the new Erasmus+ Programme gives priority to projects that contribute to improving qualifications, including training incentives, information that facilitates access to lifelong learning, aspects of the validation of non-formal and informal learning, vocational guidance for adults and adjustment of earning opportunities, etc.

If Key-action 1 allows mobility of staff from institutions connected to adult education, in what concerns adult learners/students/trainees, their participation in European cooperation projects is covered by Key-action 2 (KA2 – Strategic Partnerships), for the development of specific projects in the area of education.

These projects can vary in length and pre-suppose the participation of at least three institutions dedicated to the issue from three countries involved in the Programme; they can involve wide-ranging cooperation activities, including, as previously mentioned, the thematic interchange of learners and staff activities within adult education.

 

Teacher and Trainer Mobility

The new Erasmus+ programme considers that encouraging the mobility of professional working in adult education is crucial for improving adult qualifications and developing greater intervention capacity in the field.

To this end, as part of Key Action 1 (KA1 – Mobility for learning purposes), a specific section was created to encourage the mobility of such individuals.

Mobility projects involve at least two participating organisations from two different countries, with the candidate institution having to be recognised as an organisation that is active in adult education or lead a consortium of bodies with the same type of professional profile. At the application stage only the candidate body has to be identified, while the foreign participant can be defined after the application has been approved.

The project can last one or two years and the mobility periods between 2 days and 2 months, geared towards vocational training activities via participation in structured courses or on the job practice.

The development of professional activities is also possible within Key Action 2 partnership projects, including mobility activities, if duly justified in the project in question. The length of the mobility period can also be extended to up to one year.
