This is an overview and a comparative analysis of current methodological practices for the support for transnational mobility, for both the hosting and sending of candidates, developed in the countries participating in the partnership, within the framework of European, national and local programmes over the past five years. The contributions will be based upon bibliographic research and field-based activities carried out in France and in the countries of each European project partner. The anticipated results of these research activities should allow us to verify if and how the methods and process for the valorisation and capitalisation of experiences during mobility experiences are understood and used by the stakeholders and thus to contribute to the contents of the methodological toolkit.

This field-based survey aims to highlight the key features of transnational mobility experiences – be it via training or via a work placement – and the added value that companies can bring in terms of professionalism and the acquisition of vocational skills and competencies. These contributions will help us to create a summary of the views of 170 companies from the five countries of the partnership. Among the priorities, the research will:
– Identify the methods and the process for the involvement of host companies prior to the period of mobility,
– Finalise resources to enable companies to better understand the diverse mobility programmes, methods of accreditation used in Europe, and appreciate the benefits in terms of career development for people looking to enter or get back into the labour market,
– Develop methods and tools to enhance the contents of the methodological toolkit including practical guidance for the valorisation and capitalisation of skills before, during and after the period of transnational mobility.

This will be a methodological toolkit, developed from French contributions based on careers guidance and both comparative research projects conducted in Germany, Spain, Italy, France and the United Kingdom on the current practice of mobility operators and businesses in supporting transnational vocational mobility. In the form of a toolkit, it will provide practical advice, support, and tools to allow people looking to enter or re-enter the job market to follow an effective approach for accreditation and professional positioning via transnational vocational mobility.
Designed to progressively accompany candidates through the pedagogical stages of learning in order to integrate the dimension of “valorisation and capitalisation of the benefits” prior to and during all phases of the mobility process with three main objectives:
– Foster the ability to identify the skills available and the definition of a vocational plan fully aligned with defined professional profiles required by the labour market,
– Allow the clear identification of needs and the skills to be acquired whilst abroad to achieve the desired degree of professionalism at the end of the period of transnational vocational mobility, be it as part of a transition from full-time education to the labour market or the process of re-entering the labour market
– Develop an on-going capacity for reflection to allow the transferability of the benefits from a period of vocational transnational mobility (intercultural, linguistic and cross-cutting competencies and abilities) to specific professional contexts.
