The europass Certificate Supplements – making qualifications comparable
The europass Certificate Supplements complement a journeyman certificate or other vocational certificates. They relate to the respective occupation rather than being personal documents. The aim is to provide employers or educational institutions abroad with a deeper knowledge of the country specific standards which apply in respect of the occupation in question and thus create a greater degree of transparency on the European educational and training market.
Alongside information on the duration, nature and level of training, the Certificate Supplements supply a brief description of the knowledge and skills acquired within the vocational education and training course in question. They also indicate the typical branches and fields of activity in which a worker is qualified to operate on completion of the VET and provide details of the marks scale used for assessment.
