Frequently Asked Questions

Support and Information

What is ESCO and how is it used in Europass?

ESCO (European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations) is the European multilingual classification of Skills, Competences and Occupations.     ESCO works as a dictionary, describing, identifying and classifying professional occupations and skills relevant for the EU labour market and education and training.                       

ESCO provides descriptions of 2942 occupations and 13.485 skills linked to these occupations, translated into 27 languages (all official EU languages plus Icelandic, Norwegian and Arabic).     Europass uses ESCO in three ways:  1) Europass users have a pre-pefined list of occupations which they can choose from in their Work Experience section of their profile or CV.  2) ESCO also provides full descriptions of occupations when you choose to click on the "eye" icon. You can then click on the "Learn more" button, which will redirect you to the full information about the specific occupation.

What is accreditation?

Accreditation in the Europass context is the quality assurance or licensing of an organisation or a qualification. An accreditation instance within the Europass context can be used to specify information about two types of Accreditation.

  • Institutional licensing: quality assurance and/or licensing at the level of an organisation. It implies permission for the institution to operate (e.g., issuing a qualification) and is awarded by Public Authorities or delegates thereof.
  • Programme/qualification accreditation: permission to provide a specific programme or qualification. Describes a licensing procedure applied at the level of one or several programmes/qualifications. It implies permission for an institution to provide specific Programmes/Qualifications and is awarded by Public Authorities or delegates thereof.
What is the Qualifications Dataset Register (QDR)?

National authorities can prepare and publish qualifications, accreditation and learning opportunities in Europass through the Qualifications Dataset Register (QDR) platform. The QDR is a tool developed by the Commission to support national authorities to publish their data as ‘linked open data’ which can be published, connected and used more easily.
