Pre-mobility Training

We have been organising, monitoring and certifying learning experiences and

exchanges for over 17 years. Our staff is multi-lingual and our extensive network

of  host companies, enterprises, public sector entities and nonprofits serve to

sponsor placements for work experience, training and internships as well as

professional exchanges. Our relationships with universities and vocational t

raining institutions, as well as with public/private partnerships for career and

business development are strong bridges between the acquisition of skills

and their practical application in the labour market. These projects hold great 

prospects for personal, vocational and professional development of our colleagues and neighbors across Europe.
