Erasmus+ staff mobility

We offer Erasmus+ staff mobility for the staff members from our partner colleges. If you are interested in staff mobility in the field of vocational education and training, we can offer you a tailored program according to your interests.

The most typical Eramus+ mobility period is carried out as job shadowing. ​​​​​​We believe that staff mobility is a great way to strengthen the collaboration between us and our partner schools.

The personnel from our partner colleges can attend a mobility period at Savo Vocational College for free. The incoming staff members are responsible for their accommodation fees and other expenses. For more information regarding staff mobility at Savo Vocational College, please contact our International coordinator Jaana Räsänen.
