Mobility for students, trainees, young volunteers, teachers and trainers
WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE RECOMMENDATION?
Following the European Council in Lisbon in 2000, this recommendation aims to support free movement in the field of education and training. It calls on European Union (EU) countries to take the necessary steps to encourage the mobility of students, teachers and training staff within the EU.
The recommendation calls for EU countries to remove legal, administrative, linguistic and cultural obstacles to people:
in another EU country.
Among the issues, aims and suggestions put forward are:
Measures which specifically affectstudents or those undergoing training
Measures affecting young volunteers
Measures which concern teachers and trainers
EU countries are asked to draw up a report every 2 years on the action taken in response to these recommendations.
The recommendations outlined applied originally to EU programmes such as Socrates (education), Leonardo da Vinci (vocational training) and Youth, all of which are now part of the Erasmus+ programme, and complement measures that now fall under ET 2020 which covers cooperation in education, training and lifelong learning.
