Funded by Erasmus +, TRAPP (TRaining for APPrentices) is a cooperation project for innovation and exchange of good practices (Key Action 2).
This project will allow the partnership of 6 organizations from 4 different countries (France, Italy, Finland and Germany) to work together for the next 2 years to facilitate, secure and promote long-term mobility for professional trainings during and after apprenticeship. This would also facilitate the recognition of the mobility by implementing a european certification (first in 2 specific fields: hairstyling and automobile).
This project will include 8 mobility of apprentices (2 from each country) to implement the results achieved and confirm the ability to reproduce the project Europe wide.
Why is Uniser taking part to the project?
TRAPP project is really important to us as Erasmus Pro mobility is a fundamental focus for Uniser services development in order to be at the forefront of learning mobility. Due to the lack of a proper dual system in Italy, this type of mobility is not frequent. Thanks to the VET charter last year we were the only organization providing Erasmus Pro grants for on-training apprentices, as most of the time these mobility are done by graduated apprentices. In 2019 we organized 30 mobility thanks to the cooperation with companies and training centers and in 2020 we would like to increase these numbers and further develop our expertise.
This project will provide a legislative and organizational framework that will facilitate Erasmus Pro mobility during training periods and enhance their quality and recognition, providing a better experience for our learners.
