Mobility in vocational training

Europe is yours to discover

Please note:


We currently no longer have a budget available to support stays abroad.

Please only register again for stays from June 1, 2024.


International job experience is playing an ever more important part in vocational training. Companies expect their employees to bring language skills, work experience abroad and intercultural skills. Great store is set in international experience even in vocational education and training.

sequa promotes mobility in vocational education and training and has developed and established the sequa Mobility Programme funded by the EU Erasmus+ Programme. Here, various opportunities are available to trainees, other learners, young professionals, as well as vocational teaching and training staff in Germany.


Financial support from Erasmus+ includes a stipend for the duration of your stay as a subsidy for travel, accommodation, and food costs. The amount depends on the duration and country of destination. Environmentally friendly travel is particularly supported. A table with the funding rates for Erasmus+ can be found here. People with special needs are also welcome in the program and can receive appropriate funding.
