After that for university studies, you may get an Erasmus for work . He talked about the Prime Minister Enrico Letta, announcing that the proposal will be discussed during the Council of Ministers of tomorrow. The President pointed out that it will be a project “for young people leaving school and must get in touch with the world of work.” The program he has in mind Letta would be a kind of extension of Your First EURES Job (Your first EURES job).

Just Your First EUROS Job, in fact, is already considered a “Erasmus of recruitment”, which is based on three cornerstones: young people, companies or employers and employment services. The program is open to all companies, but the EU financial support is intended only to those with fewer than 250 employees. If you believe that there are real prospects for job placement, youth participating in the program receive a contribution to support a conversation – for 2012-2013 it is a number between 200 and 300 euro, depending on the distance (greater than or less than 500 km) from their place of origin – and a contribution to the eventual transfer once they got the place. This second figure is variable depending on the country of destination, ranging from 600 euro foreseen for Bulgaria, in 1200 for Denmark.


But the idea of ​​Prime Minister Letta is more complex and also covers the training. The intent is to let the work neill Erasmus traditional, creating a co-operation between schools, universities and employment agencies that can help young people to study abroad, with the prospect of finding a job where there is greater offer.

Europe is investing a lot of projects like this: for 2014 is expected to increase by 70 per cent of resources, and an extension of the content. Starting next year, in fact, will Erasmus for All , which will have a budget of 19 billion. The new program will bring together all existing mobility (for example, the well-known Comenius and Leonardo da Vinci), and according to the European Commission a possible target of 5 million beneficiaries, starting with high school students, who will have the opportunity to study in at least two foreign institutions and get a ‘joint degree’. L ‘ Erasmus , in short, evolves and aims to stimulate the exchange between countries to improve employment , with a series of initiatives ranging from youth volunteering projects abroad, the mobility grants for college students, up to measures to encourage the creation of a network of knowledge, innovation and entrepreneurship.
