The European mobility programme Erasmus has delivered success in the form of more than nine million participants in three decades. Since 2014, the promotion of mobility has been pooled across all educational areas in the Erasmus+ programme. However, vocational education and training learners have not yet been able to tap into the successes achieved in the higher education sector. Why is this? What sort of persuasion needs to take place, and how must general conditions be improved so that more trainees are able to take advantage of the opportunities offered by a period of training spent abroad? These are also questions which are a matter of concern to the Chair of the European Parliament Committee on Culture and Education.
