Europass for Education and Training
Europass offers a set of free online tools and information on lifelong learning and career development in Europe. Europass is a valuable resource for education and training providers, as well as for students and graduates.
The European tool to manage career and studies
Europass is a multilingual tool that will enable your students or prospective students to document all their skills, qualifications and experience in one place. Europass users can create a personal profile, in a secure online tool, to identify their goals and keep track of all of their learning and achievements.
Students can also use the profile during their studies to keep a record of their projects, achievements and progress.
Prospective students can share their profile, CVs and other documents via Europass to clearly communicate their skills, qualifications and experience to you.
