Erasmus+ and other tools to foster mobility in vocational education and training (A8-0049/2016 - Ernest Maragall)

  Damian Drăghici (S&D), in writing. ‒ Erasmus+ is one of the most successful EU programmes that gives learners more opportunities to acquire new professional skills as well as linguistic, social and intercultural competences that can help them become more competitive on the labour market and also more aware of and engaged in the social and political life of the Union.

Erasmus+ can make a major contribution in achieving EU2020 objectives and in addressing the current challenges posed by huge unemployment (especially among young people), skills shortages and mismatches between education and labour market, high rates of early school leaving and of young people not in education, employment or training.

Therefore I fully support the constructive proposals included in this report for expanding and improving mobility options for all learners in VET starting with creating a European reference framework. In order to boost the quantity and quality of mobility in VET, the Commission together with the Member States need to correlate their efforts in order to ensure that the right to quality and inclusive education is much better protected and that there are no constraints or barriers to programmes or initiatives taken at EU and national level, especially for learners from vulnerable or disadvantaged groups.
