It is estimated that in the near future a significant percentage of all jobs in the EU will call for high level qualifications and that an important part of skill acquisition will be through non-formal training, with special emphasis on what is referred to as international mobility, voluntary service, practical learning in real work environments and active participation of young people.

Therefore, in order to find solutions to the challenges of the future in the field of an open economy and for the development of skills and knowledge, training and mobility of young Basque people, training them for their incorporation into the job market, a programme of grants called “Global Training” Grants was launched in 2012. This programme, aimed at young people with university and higher level vocational training qualifications, fosters the transnational mobility of young people from the Basque Country to carry out activities and projects related to their academic and professional profile in foreign companies and organisations with a previously planned practical training plan.

The boost in the internationalisation of the Basque economy will require more and better prepared young people for a sustainable society, in which there is the same economic independence for both men and women

You will return home as a prestigious professional, which will open doors to the job market for you
