\ Among the novelties of this call, it is worth mentioning that students and teachers will be able to go to any country in the world and new types of mobilities will be offered.

The Regional Ministry of Education and Vocational Training is offering more than 400 Erasmus+ grants for the 2022-2023 academic year to students and teachers of vocational training and certificates of professionalism thanks to the Erasmus+ KA121-VET EuroFP Balearic Islands VI project, in which 47 public and state-subsidised educational centres on the four islands are taking part. The beneficiaries of these mobilities are teachers and students of basic VET, intermediate level training cycles and, for the first time, level 1, 2 and 3 certificates of professionalism.

It should be noted that for this call for the 2022-2023 academic year, the Erasmus+ grants offered by Education include important new features. Firstly, for the first time, students and teachers will be able to undertake mobility in any country in the world and not only in countries of the European Union. In addition, new types of mobility are included, such as professional skills competitions for students or training courses for teachers, in addition to the existing ones: work placements for students (between 2 weeks and 1 year), observation periods and training stays in companies for teachers (between 2 days and 2 months), teaching periods for teachers, incoming mobilities for foreign specialists and trainers, preparatory visits and student accompaniment.

All mobilities are fully financed by European funds thanks to the EuroFP Baleares VI project, submitted by Education to the Erasmus+ call for 2022 and which was funded by the National Agency Erasmus+ SEPIE with € 876,650, the highest budget that has received a project of this kind in the Balearic Islands for a school year, and the fourth in terms of the level of funding at the state level.

It should be noted that since 2015, when Education offered the first Erasmus+ grants for VET (successor to the Leonardo da Vinci grants), the number of mobilities and the budget allocated to the Balearic EuroFP Balearic projects of the Conselleria has quadrupled. In this way, Education contributes to the achievement of the objectives of the European Union in terms of the internationalisation of vocational training.
