The Erasmus in Schools project aims to provide knowledge on the various international mobility schemes available at the time of the interventions, but also enables different audiences to anticipate possible mobility. The aim is to show that a young person can choose to go on a mobility trip regardless of financial, time or geographical problems, provided that they have the right information and are accompanied. It is by allowing the dissemination of this information through inclusive tools that takes into account the diversity of young people that the project will achieve its objectives:
- To raise awareness regarding European mobility from the age of 14-15
- To propose adapted tools to inform each young person in secondary school or training centre about the different international mobility schemes
- To help these students to better undertake international mobility
- To reduce the social and institutional obstacles at the initial stage of mobility
- To enable these students to understand the added value of European mobility in their academic and professional curriculum
Informing young people as soon as they enter high school or training/apprenticeship center is essential when it comes to international mobility. In 2017, Erasmus Student Network France flagged that 88% of young people do not feel sufficiently updated about existing mobility programmes. Including students and apprentices from all backgrounds (high school students and apprentices with disabilities, high school students and apprentices from priority urban neighbourhoods) makes sense in ESN France's work to raise awareness about mobility. The Erasmus in Schools project aims to provide knowledge on the various international mobility schemes available at the time of the interventions, but also enables different audiences to anticipate possible mobility.
