What is the europass?

The europass provides important assistance in making the best use of the opportunities offered by a united Europe. The europass enables you to present your qualifications, skills and competences in a comprehensible form right across Europe. This creates transparency. The europass thus opens the door to learning and work in Europe across all areas including higher education study, training and job search or equally within the scope of salaried employment or freelance work.

This is all made possible by the standardised europass documents which are issued in a uniform format right across Europe. These are the europass Curriculum Vitae, the europass Language Passport, the europass Certificate Supplements, the europass Mobility and the europass Diploma Supplement. These documents enable you to record all the qualifications you have acquired during the course of your lifetime regardless of the route via which you have obtained them. The europass also operates in a manner which is completely in accordance with the very latest European educational policy thinking by being increasingly aligned towards learning outcomes rather than being based on educational pathways and learning times (learning inputs).

The potential of the documents will be even further enhanced in future by dint of the fact that they are linked to the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and the European Credit System for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET). The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is already firmly integrated into the europass Mobility and the europass Diploma Supplement.
