Europass

Introduction

Europass is an online platform that can help you make your skills and qualifications clearly understood by employers and educators in other EU countries.

It brings together a number of documents that both learners and workers may need.

The documents include:

These documents are helpful when you move between EU countries to work or study. Using Europass can make it easier for employers to understand your qualifications from another EU State.

Europass platform

A Europass profile is a record of your skills and qualifications. You can record your work, education, training, language skills and achievements. You can use the information in your Europass profile to create CVs for jobs or courses that you may be applying for.

You can complete your profile online using the Europass platform.

The Europass platform also allows you to create your e-Portfolio and keep digitally-signed credentials.

Rates

There is no charge for Europass documents and application is free of charge.

There is also no funding available under this programme towards the costs of training abroad. EU funding is available for mobility programmes through Erasmus +.
