Learners are hosted either at a workplace (in an enterprise or other relevant organisation) or at a VET school (with periods of work-based learning in an enterprise or other relevant organisation).
Each mobility Activity is set within a quality framework previously agreed upon by the sending and receiving organisations to ensure a high level of quality for the Activity, including a “Learning Agreement”.
The learning outcomes are formally recognised and validated at an institutional level, course contents are adapted as necessary to ensure that the mobility period abroad fits well with the course in which the apprentice/VET student is enrolled.

NB: Structured courses are not eligible for funding.
