Erasmus is celebrating its 30 years. In 2017, 43 000 students benefitted from the programme whereas only 6 800 apprentices had the opportunity to go abroad. And most often for a short period of time. The ambition of the Minister is to lift the impediments to the mobility in order to let 15 000 apprentices go in Erasmus by 2022.
That is why Murel Pénicaud entrusted MEP Jean Arthuis with a mission in July 2017. The latter is destined to make proposals allowing long mobility and developing the Erasmus for everyone.
