The VET Mobility Charter encourages organisations that have track records of proven quality in organising VET mobility for learners and staff to further develop their European internationalisation strategies.This means that a sending organisation develops an international approach throughout its work, for example by networking with bodies in other countries, promoting the learning of foreign languages and looking beyond national VET approaches.
The Charter also recognises the holders’ long-term commitment to continuous improvement of mobility and their strategic approach to incorporating international mobility in their activities. Recipients of the Charter retain it for the full duration of Erasmus+ and can make simplified applications through the yearly General Calls. Six Irish organisations currently hold the VET Mobility Charter, as listed below.
The 2018 Call for Applications for the Charter has been issued and the deadline is 17 May 2018. You can download a zip file with a sample application form, instruction for applicants, and guide on Strategic Internationalisation from our Resources section. The live application form will be available in March 2018. Please note that the terms of the Call allow for Charters to remain valid beyond the lifecycle of Erasmus+, which ends in 2020. If you need further information or help, get in touch with us.

Wonderful evening @DeeleCollege last night to celebrate the successful Peace IV (Case) Project 2017/2018. It was fitting to also pay tribute to Paddy Harte & family for his efforts at reconciliation. Thanks to Deele for their great hospitality. @Leargas @Ed_Authority @DonegalETB pic.twitter.com/jXzrBlwBuL— Royal & Prior School (@Royalandprior) March 14, 2018
