Learning Mobility—in Europe

Last Updated 12/15/2023

Learning (learner) mobility is a key objective in education in Europe. The term refers to the process of enabling learners throughout their lifetime to access their right to education founded on the belief that education is a public good, which includes the experience of learning mobility also as a public good. It is addressed in policy through the European Union (EU) Strategic Framework for Cooperation 2021-2030, which includes lifelong learning and learning mobility as priorities.

The Lifelong Learning Platform is an umbrella that gathers 44 European organizations from education, training and youth, representing more than 50 000 educational institutions and associations covering all sectors of formal, non-formal and informal learning. Members work together on education and training to harmonize their work over the next decade.  No benchmark has been established to measure the EU’s progress in “making learning mobility a reality for all” though learner mobility is a key objective of the Framework and the European Education Area, and one of the main requests by citizens through the Conference on the Future of Europe (CoFoE). This topic is critical because a key target of the previous strategy – 20% of mobile higher education graduates – was not reached. The current Lifelong Learning Platform presents recommendations from its members to address shortcomings and to widen access to learning mobilities across the EU.
