The idea was born from a need to address the challenges in the job market due to the changing demand of a more globalised and intercultural world, as well as the rising mobility of the workforce. Internationalisation of training systems has been regarded as the crucial response to provide young people with key competences, focused on citizenship and interculturality.
This is crucial as the financial constraints and schools budget unfortunately allow only a handful of students to participate in a mobility experience every year. One way to increase this number is working to modernise and improve education and training systems, as well as finding new ways of bringing Europe to local learners by introducing more Internationalisation at Home.
Besides, since March 2020 the COVID 19 pandemic has made even more urgent the need to provide VET centers with new competences and tools to implement virtual mobility, blended mobility and fostering Internationalisation at Home processes.
