PPMI kicks-off a study to support the Commission’s plan for the new learning mobility framework
Cross-border learning mobility has consistently received the highest policy attention from the European Commission. Cross-border learning mobility is one of the key policy objectives addressed by the strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training towards the European Education Area and beyond (2021-2030). To that end, EU policy initiatives and programmes, such as the expanded Erasmus+ programme 2021-2027, continue to offer learning mobility opportunities across different education and training sectors to millions of learners and staff, from school pupils to adults, including youth workers and sport staff.
In October 2022, the Commission's Directorate-General for Education and Culture (DG EAC) contracted PPMI to conduct the study "Supporting learning mobility: progress, obstacles and way forward". The study will be carried out within the context of the European Commission’s plan to adopt a proposal for a Council Recommendation on the new learning mobility framework. The new Recommendation will aim to install learning mobility as a norm rather as an exception for all learners and staff in all education and training sectors, youth, and sport. The main objective of the study is to map and analyse available data on the progress and the incentives as well as the reasons why learners do not move and the obstacles to learning mobility in the EU in all learning settings, provide the Commission with a solid basis of knowledge and analysis and propose concrete recommendations for the revised learning mobility framework, in order to overcome the bottlenecks and to boost learning mobility, both within and beyond the EU programmes.
