Inclusive Mobility in Vocational Education and Training (IMVET)

The Inclusive Mobility in Vocational Education and Training (IMVET) project aims to make mobility programs more accessible for students with disabilities, in line with the European Pillar of Social Right and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Despite the known benefits of international experiences for personal development, students with disabilities face significant barriers in participating in such programs. IMVET seeks to understand these barriers through research and to raise awareness about the need for improvements.

It also focuses on enhancing the skills of VET professionals in supporting these students. The project targets primarily students with disabilities, as well as VET professionals and indirectly, policymakers and employers involved in VET mobility. All findings and tools will be made available to schools and stakeholders across Europe.

This project has the following objectives:

  • Increase awareness of professionals of VET schools and of regional, national and European stakeholders on the importance of inclusive mobility programmes in VET schools and needs of students with disabilities in these programmes.
  • Provide VET professionals with practical information and guidelines on inclusive mobility programs, so they will have a better understanding of opportunities for improving their mobility programmes and more knowledge on how to do so.
  • Inform students with disabilities about the opportunities to go abroad with accessible information materials.

We aim to reach these objectives through the following activities:

  • Gaining insights on opportunities for improving the inclusiveness of mobility programs through focus groups with students and VET professionals and desk research
  • Developing practical tools for VET professionals working on mobility programs, such as a self-assessment and guidelines with best practices
  • Developing accessible and inspirational information materials for students with disabilities to lower barriers for them to go abroad.
