T2MIS Partners Launch Innovative Product To Support Learning Mobility in Sport

presentation1 It's possible to reap benefits of learning mobility for those in the sports and physical activity sector. MRU is one of several partners involved in T2MIS European Union (EU) Sports project, led by the international organisation European Observatories of Sport and Employment (EOSE).  

Through learning mobility, individuals acquire new skills that will strengthen their future employability as well as their personal development. This is the well-known story of Learning Mobility. Yet this is only one side of the story. Every stakeholder, involved in the process, is gaining from the experience including the host and the sending organisation, as the beneficiaries question may act as eye opener breaking daily routine in host organisations and come back to their country with self-refection skills and new knowledge and skills, hence contributing in return to the development of their sending organisation.

The practices have showed that immense benefits could be reached, if the sector adopts a culture of Learning Mobility. Participants, as well as host and sending organisations, often describe it as “a once-in-a-lifetime experience building upon cultural and practical learning outcomes.

In nurturing a culture of learning mobility in the sport and physical activity sector, the sector is better able to tackle the societal and economical challenges it is now facing. It is a common belief in many organisations that the sport sector could benefit from the adoption of a culture of learning mobility which would allow all stakeholders (the individual, the host and the sending organisations) to win through mutual enrichment where ‘giving’ and ‘receiving’ becomes standard practice.

Indeed through learning mobility, the sector will be more interconnected and will get the opportunity to build its capacity. This is why the T2MIS partners*, including [your organisation], are closing the 18 months EU funded project with a call to action and inviting all stakeholders to make their Voice heard using #MakeLearningMobilityARealityInSport.

Improving skills, promoting lifelong learning and facilitating exchange of knowledge is a crucial process in the development and professionalisation of the whole sport sector.

The T2MIS online platform is offering the first step for individuals and organisations willing to take their ticket to learning mobility. In that sense we should be proud to have pioneered an innovative tool accessible to all during the T2MIS project. The interest from the sector has clearly been demonstrated and we have developed together a solid foundation. The time is now for us all to work on the next steps towards sustainability and future actions!” says Carole Ponchon, EOSE PR and Project Manager who lead the T2MIS project.

The whole project has been building upon results from the Feasibility Study carried out by EOSE in 2013 and consultation with the whole spectrum of the sector in order to develop a dynamic tool demonstrating the benefits of learning mobility, the eligibility of the sector through a series of testimonials and good practices as well as an innovative wizard area directing individual and organisations towards potential funding stream based on information they would share with the T2MIS image.The platform is rather the results of extensive desk research and interviews with key stakeholders.
