Themes of the Conference
Enabling successful mobility experiences
Connecting people, ideas + opportunities
The Learning by Leaving Conference 2018 will focus on the different aspects of mobility guidance and validation of skills acquired by going abroad. These aspects will be discussed during workshops, plenary sessions and other formats in order to elaborate the potential of cooperation within and between the networks.
MOTIVATION and INFORMATION – Creating awareness
How do the mobility networks reach their target groups? How do they motivate and inform them? Which information has to be provided and through which channels? How is information shared among the networks?
TRAINING and QUALIFICATION – Professionalising ourselves
Which competences do counsellors need to
a) successfully counsel target groups?
b) cope with changes due to digitalisation (e.g. e-guidance and online courses) and fast-changing labour markets?
Which measures exist to train mobility experts?
GUIDANCE PROCESSES – Identifying opportunities
How do mobility experts need to counsel/advise their target groups? Which methods, formats and tools are available? Does quality assurance exist? If so, what does it look like?
HUMAN SKILLS – Helping assess experiences
How can target groups better assess skills they developed through mobility? How can these skills be made more visible?
CERTIFICATION PROCESSES – Validating mobility
Which tools exist to certify acquired skills of target groups?
