European VET Mobility
The first Leonardo da Vinci programmes (1995–2003) integrated all the previous European programmes dealing with vocational education and training like PETRA, EUROTECNET and FORCE.
In 2007, the Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) integrated Leonardo in its framework and included all the other actions dealing with education. LLP offered all the European education institutions and stakeholders a framework to finance transnational projects. Although LLP built a common workplace for European education, each of the various sub-programmes was developed under different conditions, and their call procedures were not the same.
The different LLP sub-programmes have evolved into a unique Erasmus+ framework where all the European education sectors share the same application and call procedures.
Erasmus+ (2014–2020) is the current European programme in charge of fostering the development of transnational programmes in the areas of education, training, sport and youth policies and has continued developing the objectives found in its predecessors. Erasmus+ is focused on the adaptation to a fast changing world, tackling youth unemployment and preparing the workers for highly skilled jobs.
