Since their introduction in 1987, European Mobility programmes have been very successful. Among the different kinds of Erasmus Plus projects, we can find vocational education and training VET mobilities.
The purpose of these activities funded by Erasmus+ is to provide learning opportunities to individuals and to support internationalization and institutional development of VET providers and other organisations in vocational education and training.
Italymobility.org, the division of CSCS for learning mobility initiatives, is committed to establishing bridges across Europe in the field of vocational education and training being contracted in more than 50 transnational research and vocational training projects, especially in vocational training areas.
Thanks to the Italymobility program, learners can improve their professional skills, exploring different working methods in a multicultural environment and team.
At the same time, they acquire new social and personal competencies, strengthening their values of inclusion and diversity and promoting knowledge about shared European heritage and diversity.
The question now is: why should VET institutions choose Italy for their mobility projects?
Italymobility provides a special path for professional growth: an opportunity to broaden horizons, to absorb the value of arts and culture, and to understand the importance of knowing how to manage a wonderful patrimony that brings together business and innovation with the unparalleled wealth of the Italian cultural heritage.
Italian excellence manifests itself in several sectors.
Food & Beverage (F&B)
Italy has always been a synonym for “good food,” offering an unmistakable explosion of flavors, scents, and aromas. Aside from having one of the most famous cuisines in the world, it also proposes an immense variety of different regional dishes and recipes.
A cultural and social phenomenon, Italian fashion is the emblem of the style and elegance of the Bel Paese.
The textile sector – clothing, leather, and footwear – move significant volumes and represents a major part of the high-quality products that are exported all over the world. The Italian fashion brands that have extended their original activities in clothing to the footwear, purse, accessories, and perfume divisions continue to be a constant worldwide phenomenon.
Italy is synonymous with excellence in decor: from the choice of construction materials to bathroom furnishings; from the production of ecological paints and windows to fine upholstery, sofas, and furnishing accessories; from the soundproofing of the rooms to the ventilation and energy efficiency systems; without forgetting the appliances designed to work in perfect synergy under the control of the most advanced home automation systems.
Tourism and Hospitality
Italian tourism and hospitality are therefore well-known around the world: from luxury hotels on mountain peaks to resorts nestled on the coasts of the hottest destinations, from luxury apartments in the heart of the historic centers of the most beautiful cities to charming Bed & Breakfasts, the watchword is ‘customer care’, the satisfaction of his desires.
Art, architecture, and Culture
Italy has been, since antiquity, the center of history, culture, architecture, and art. Museums, collections, and archaeological sites reveal countless tokens of the past and the many civilizations that have passed across this country, evidence of which is still inextricably woven into the present-day landscape.
Artistic wonders can be found everywhere, and every corner of the country holds countless and wonderful surprises. The Italian artistic and cultural heritage is one of the most valuable in the world. Italy has more cultural UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country.
