Increasing the transparency of qualifications is an essential step in European lifelong learning policy to facilitate greater flexibility in individual learning pathways, thus fostering learner mobility both on an institutional and geographical level. Efforts have been undertaken by the Member States to connect their national qualifications to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF), a process that is still ongoing. In the context of the European Lifelong Learning Programmes, the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) for the higher education sector and the European Credit System for Education and Training (ECVET) in the vocational sector were developed to allow for a greater transparency and comparability of degrees and qualifications. The publication presents the valuable tools available to promote recognition and validation of learning acquired abroad.
All the IMY mobility programs provide students with work placements in more than 100 job sectors and roles. Check them here or ask your IMY tutor for profiles that are not listed.
