In 2015, the partnership between the European Commission and the Council of Europe in the field of youth started developing a Quality Framework for Learning Mobility in the Field of Youth within the European Platform for Learning Mobility (EPLM). The Quality Framework’s main aim is to provide advice and guidance to organisers of mobility projects – especially first-time organisers, or organisers who do not work with transnational mobility on a regular basis – on how to improve the quality of mobility activities undertaken in the field of youth and mainly in a non-formal context.

The Quality Framework consists of three elements:

1.            A set of overarching quality principles for mobility, which constitutes a tool for reflection to frame the overall discussion of what “quality in mobility” is;

2.            A set of detailed quality indicators (at the right-hand side of this page) that function as a targeted check-list in the planning phase to ensure that learning outcomes of the project, as well as issues linked to inclusion, health and safety for participants, their active participation in the process etc. are safeguarded;

3.            A quality handbook that underpins the principles and the indicators with more extensive explanations and references to relevant sources of information and examples of good practice.

Definition of Learning Mobility

By learning mobility we mean transnational mobility undertaken for a period of time, consciously organised for educational purposes or to acquire new competences  or knowledge. It covers a wide variety of projects and activities and can be implemented in formal or non-formal settings.

We are calling therefore for YOUR examples of good practice, to share, enrich and inspire.

The most interesting good practice examples will be included in the handbook on quality in learning mobility.

Deadline for submissions: 4 June 2018 9:30 CET
