What is the europass?Education and training are essential for anyone who wants to take advantage of the opportunities presented by a united Europe . It is becoming increasingly important to find a lasting way to exchange knowledge and information across borders.
The europass opens doors to learning and working in Europe.
With its various components, the europass offers a fitting tool for documenting and presenting worthwhile experiences at home and abroad. It conveys a comprehensive picture of the holder's qualifications and skills, enabling easier comparison between European countries.
The europass presents personal abilities, skills and qualifications in a form that is clear and easy to understand.
Anyone can prepare the europass Curriculum Vitae (CV) or the europass Language Passport and use them when applying for a job. The europass Mobility has replaced the former europass Training, while the europass Diploma Supplement and the europass Certificate Supplement provide additional information, allowing for easier comparison of degrees in higher education as well as vocational education and training certificates across borders.
Europe is changing. Progressive international integration of the European economies accompanied by rapid technological advances place higher demands on all of us.
Lifelong learning is becoming a key factor in being able to successfully participate in social and economic life and to shape a bright future.
The europass and its tools must keep pace with ongoing developments. We need readily accessible tools that make each citizen's qualifications and skills easily understandable across educational borders.

europass Curriculum Vitae (CV)
