EPLM call for good practice for quality projects on learning mobility in the youth field
In preparation for the Handbook for Quality in Learning Mobility, the Steering Group of the European Platform on Learning Mobility (EPLM) have called for good practice examples on quality projects in learning mobility in the youth field, through the EU-CoE youth partnership Facebook page and Twitter account.
In 2015, the partnership between the European Commission and the Council of Europe in the field of youth started developing a Quality Framework for Learning Mobility in the field of youth within the European Platform for Learning Mobility (EPLM). The Quality Framework’s main aim is to provide advice and guidance to organisers of mobility projects – especially first-time organisers, or organisers who do not work with transnational mobility on a regular basis – on how to improve the quality of mobility activities undertaken in the field of youth and mainly in a non-formal context.
The Quality Framework consists of three elements:
- A set of overarching quality principles for mobility, which constitutes a tool for reflection to frame the overall discussion of what “quality in mobility” is;
- A set of detailed quality indicators (at the right-hand side of this page) that function as a targeted check-list in the planning phase to ensure that learning outcomes of the project, as well as issues linked to inclusion, health and safety for participants, their active participation in the process etc. are safeguarded;
- A quality handbook that underpins the principles and the indicators with more extensive explanations and references to relevant sources of information and examples of good practices.
The Call for good practice on quality projects in Learning Mobility is open until 9:30 CET on 4 June https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LMGoodPractice
