We know that being experts in our field means continually challenging ourselves and our preconceptions, and encouraging others to do the same.

That’s why we proudly share knowledge and develop new initiatives with our network of international partners.
We’re always looking to make connections and branch out into new areas of work. If you’re interested in sharing your knowledge, gaining insight into other global contexts or collaborating with us on a new project, please get in touch.

  • “I had never been on a plane or gone abroad before so…the thing that stuck out most for me was being in another country for the first time. Learning some words in a new language and being able to ask about or for something in that language was something I was very proud of.”

Vocational skills frameworks

In today’s competitive educational landscape, it’s essential that qualifications are transferable and skills levels are internationally recognised. To address this, we’re collaborating with several initiatives and networks to develop and implement a range of skills frameworks.

Job shadow placements

A job shadow placement is an opportunity for a professional to learn new skills and broaden their career horizons. Working alongside their peers in another European country, our job shadow placements facilitate both personal professional growth.

Returning with newfound knowledge and ideas, brand new contacts and a broader understanding of the European jobs market, individuals that have completed job shadow placements abroad are uniquely equipped to enhance their own organisation’s course design and delivery.

Collaboration and knowledge sharing is at the heart of what we do. With a wealth of relevant expertise behind us, we provide resources and toolkits that guide you through the complexities of delivering international programmes.

Soft skills development

Soft skills help us navigate through our working life and enable us to do a job well, no matter what the job is.

Communication, problem solving, adaptability, teamwork and flexibility are all examples of soft skills that most organisations rely on to thrive. Whilst the work we do and the situations we face will vary, soft skills can be applied and developed across different settings.

It can be quite challenging setting up and coordinating a mobility experience for your learners.

We’ve prepared a number of useful resources to help you throughout all stages of planning the mobility, so that you get it right the first time round.

  • “I think that this placement has offered me the best experience I could have had abroad. This is because I was faced with many challenges, such as language barriers, which I overcame by finding other ways of interacting and communicating with others. I think this is a skill that will stand out on my CV when I apply for jobs.”

Collaboration and partnership is at the heart of what we do.
