Programmes and schemes for cross-border mobility

The Erasmus+ programme offers opportunities for cross-border mobility in the field of educational training and youth. Both individuals and organisations can apply for projects. The national agency for the implementation of the Erasmus+ programme in the fields of education and youth (Anefore) is in charge of the programme at national level. In Luxembourg, a total number of 34 projects were funded in the framework of the youth programme of Erasmus+ (budget: € 1 100 869). The number of participants was 1 638 (Anefore, 2020). 

The Your first EURES job project assists young nationals between 18 and 35 years of age to find work placement (job, traineeship or apprenticeship) in another EU (or EFTA/EEA) country. It also helps employers to find the workforce they need for their hard-to-fill vacancies. Cross-border vocational training programmes allow young people to learn a profession for which there is no offer in Luxembourg. While the practical training is held in a company based in Luxembourg, the courses take place in a foreign institution.

Legal framework

There is no specific legal framework except for the voluntary services (see: 2.4 Youth volunteering at national level).

General modalities of working contracts and apprenticeships are regulated by the Labour legislation (Code du Travail).
