The challenges the younger generation faces today (difficult access to jobs, inclusion in a multi-ethnic society, recognition of their competences in a globalised context) justify closer attention to transversal competences.

While devising their guide, the wish of the AKI partners was to use a language common to the field of non formal education and to the labour market, with a view to:

  • demonstrating that international mobility is a means to develop transversal competences ;
  • helping young adults to put their experience into words, to identify and bring out competences acquired in international mobility projects ;
  • making employers aware that international mobility can produce the kind of competences they look for ;
  • showing how useful these competences can be socially and professionally.
