Quality in Mobility
In 2015 The Finnish National Agency for Education awarded Sedu with the Erasmus+ VET Mobility Charter for the period from 1.1.2016 to 31.12.2020. The VET Mobility Charter recognizes the high quality of previous mobility projects, the long-term commitment to continous improvement of mobility and the strategic approach of the organization to in corporate international mobility in its activities. Sedu has agreed to make every effort to ensure high quality in organizing VET Mobility according to the Eramus+ Programme Guide and the conditions laid down in the relevant grant agreement, learning agreements and quality commitment.
We have cooperation in different parts of Europe, f.e. France, Spain, Sweden, Malta, Germany, Poland, Denmark, UK and Ireland - to name a few. Through national Network cooperation we are also doing mobilities to Uganda, Tansania, India and Nepal.
We are continuously looking forward to widening our international partner network.
