From May 10 to 13, 2011 a member of the JU Careers Service Staff participated in the study visit "Higher education in arts and its connections to the labour market" organized by the Spanish higher education institution Escuela Superior del Vidrio. The study visit was financed from a special individual grant awarded by the National Agency of the Lifelong Learning Programme.

The visit was an excellent opportunity to meet education experts from other EU member states, share knowledge and experience with them and develop lasting professional ties. The study visit enabled the participant to deepen her knowledge about the links between education and the job  market, which is directly related to the mission of the JU Careers Service.


Study visits in Ostrava and London

From October 6 to 10, 2008 two members of the JU Careers Service staff participated in the study visit programme in Ostrava and London.

The topics of the visits were as follows:

  • Key competencies for the labour market (Ostrava),
  • Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG): Preparation for the labour market (London).

About the programme:

The Foundation for the Development of the Education System runs a study visit programme. It is organized within the framework of the "Lifelong Learning Programme" as one of the key activities of the Transversal Programme.

The programme's target group are citizens or permanent inhabitants of 27 EFTA member states (including Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway) and one candidate state, Turkey.

The participation in the study visits makes it possible to exchange with the others innovative ideas and experience and develop professional contacts in the fields of common interest at the European level. This enables the participants to promote high quality and transparency in education. The meetings are aimed at reaching a wide variety of people who may influence education and in-service training policies and spread the information acquired in their job environment and local community.

The study visits are a meeting ground for experts from different European countries who work in the field of general education and in-service training. These short, 3-5 day-long meetings in small groups of 10-15 people provide an excellent opportunity for the exchange of knowledge and information among the participants and between the participants and the representatives of the host country.

The participation in the study visits is financed by the European Union through individual grants awarded by the National Agency of the Lifelong Learning Programme.
