CENTRO EUROPEU DE LÍNGUAS: A LEADING MOBILITY PROMOTER IN PORTUGAL

Centro Europeu de Línguas is currently one of Portugal’s leading promoters of Erasmus+ projects. From 1996 to 2013, we promoted and co-ordinated 16 mobility projects within the framework of the Leonardo da Vinci Programme. Over the last 20 years we have been responsible for the mobility experiences of hundreds of young Portuguese citizens from various professional areas in several different European countries.

So far, Centro Europeu de Línguas has been the promoter of the following mobility projects:
Atlântico I | Atlântico II | Atlântico III | Atlântico IV | Atlântico V | Atlântico VI | Euromobilidade 25 I | Euromobilidade 25 II | Euromobilidade 25 III | Lisboa – Mobilidade / Empregabilidade | LxMove | LxMove II | LxMove III | Mobilidade + Línguas = Passaporte para o Futuro | Mobilidade + Línguas = Passaporte para o Futuro II | Mobilidade + Línguas = Passaporte para o Futuro III | C.I.L. – Cultura e Inovação em Línguas.

WHAT IS MOBILITY?
Key Action 1 Mobility projects provide support for projects promoting the transnational mobility of individuals, contributing towards improving the acquisition and deployment of knowledge, competence, qualification and cultural awareness, so as to facilitate personal development and employability.
Our projects provide the opportunity for recent graduates to take part in a professional work placement experience with the above aims.

HOW TO APPLY?
If you are a student at Centro Europeu de Línguas, or a student at one of the vocational training centres with which we co-operate, please send us a detailed Europass CV explicitly stating “Application for the Erasmus+ Programme”.

CERTIFICATION
Erasmus+ Mobility Projects are run in partnership with qualified organisations. This means that the diplomas and certificates issued by host entities are valid within the context of lifelong learning and within the European Certification system – EUROPASS MOBILITY, to which only participants have access.
The number of programme participants is limited, and depends on the approval of the respective convention attributed by our National Agency.
