Erasmus+ mobility projects

Vocational education and training is at the heart of the Erasmus+ programme which – as a sectoral programme of the European Lifelong Learning Programme – aims to contribute to making the European Union the most competitive knowledge economy by focusing on upgrading the skills of people entering or already in the European labour market and improving the systems and practices of vocational education and training.
Erasmus+ addresses the teaching and learning needs of all those involved in non-tertiary vocational education and training, as well as the needs of institutions and organisations providing or facilitating such education and training.
