The European Commission has launched a new pilot initiative aiming at enabling vocational education and training (VET) colleges in the EU to set up student and staff exchange programmes with colleges in the Western Balkans, Turkey and Africa.
Besides student and staff mobility between colleges, these mobility partnerships will also share good practice in their countries and regions, and create networks and partnerships for exchange.
The general objective is to contribute to the improvement and modernisation of VET systems in the Enlargement countries and Africa, as well as reinforcing the links between VET and the labour market.
More specifically, the aim of this call (EAC/S34/2018) is to enhance the capacity of VET providers in the Enlargement countries (Lot n°1) and Africa (Lot n°2) by promoting mobility activities aimed at improving the skills and competences of VET teachers, learners and managers and the occupational prospects of young students.

Public or private VET organisation (or subsidiary/branch) active in the field of vocational education and training and legally registered in a European Union Member State, a consortium of public or private VET organisations.
The applicant (or lead applicant in the case of a consortium) must be established in an EU Member State.
The maximum duration of each project under Lot 1 and Lot 2 is 42 months
