The Go Europe work area was created in 2005 and enables around 500 vocational school students throughout Berlin to spend time abroad every year. Since 2005 the number and the quality of mobility measures have increased enormously.

Klaus Naumann again says “I think a situation arises in which the schools that do not participate in Erasmus+ are missing out. The whole experience is increasingly becoming an image factor, especially in the field of vocational training because ultimately, it has a lot to do with the attractiveness of the training. "
