Before Mobility

Before a mobility period can begin, a great deal of planning and preparation is required. This can get easier over time, especially once there is a functioning partnership guided by a Memorandum of Understanding.
For sending or receiving organisations that are new to mobility, or for newly-established partnerships, core steps are separately addressed in this section of the ECVET Mobility Toolkit, with sub-texts that centre on:
  • preparing a Memorandum of Understanding.
  • identifying units of learning outcomes.
  • discussing assessment.
  • agreeing on how to document learners' achievements.
  • clarifying validation and recognition.
  • signing a learning agreement.

In this video, Susanna Vestling of Yrkesakademin i Österbotten (Finland), describes the required steps and documents confirming how these are carried out for a typical ECVET mobility period in Finland.
