Faktaa - Facts and figures 1B/2018: Quality and competitiveness. International activities of vocational education and training staff and the effects of these activities on their vocational institution

CoverphotoWe know that international activities of VET staff benefit vocational institutions in many ways: networks and competences are created and they provide new influences and operating practices. Internationalisation also increases internationalisation as teachers’ experiences inspire the students to try their wings abroad, as well.

This publication looks at the internationalisation of staff from three topical points of view. First, an overview of statistics is provided: how actively do VET staff complete mobility periods, what kind of developments have there been over the past few years, and how is mobility distributed by region. Next, the benefits of Eramus+ mobility periods to VET staff are discussed on the basis of the material from the Finnish survey about the concrete impacts of international activities on students, learning and teaching, and the institutions’ cooperation with working life.

Faktaa – Facts and Figures is a series of publications presenting the findings of studies, reports and statistics produced by the Finnish National Agency for Education in a compact form. The publications are available both in print and as PDF documents.
