Aims & objectives

For detailed description see the SALTO training overview: http://trainings.salto-youth.net/5525

The main objective of the Seminar was to create space for sharing knowledge, experience and best practice with regards to supporting and preparing participants for their transnational mobility experience in SECTORS of ERASMUS+ (AE, SE, VET, Youth & HE).

Delivering high quality mobility is a key driver of the Erasmus+ programme and for those responsible for implementing KA1 mobility projects across Europe.

Based on the combined experience of the National Agency and feedback from beneficiaries, the two key areas in ensuring high quality mobility experience are preparation and evaluation. Ensuring participants receive an adequate level of cultural, sectoral, pedagogical and linguistic support in advance of their mobility will help to manage expectations as well as supporting them during their transnational experience.

With this in mind the main objective of the Quality Matters seminar was to create a space for sharing knowledge, experience and best practice when delivering these areas of mobility projects.

The seminar specifically focused on:
• cultural preparation
• transfer of experience and knowledge
• mobility as a learning procces


With the specific aims:
a. to identify what are the key factors for quality preparation and evaluation of the participant
b. to identify differences and similarities between sectoral approaches to mobility support
c. to transfer best practices and tools between sectors
d. to promote mobility as a learning process.

I worked on this training for 3 days as a full time trainer.

Testimonial of the reference person

Bara is very devoted, open-minded and ready to react to the participants' needs, flexible and creative if it goes about the methods and the training process. Her spirit makes participants feel safe and easy. Definitely she is capable of running cross-sectoral training and seminar thanks to her former experience and ability to work in wider context.
