European Commission launches the European Skills Passport

Irene Matías

The Passport enables people to improve the presentation of their CVs by bringing together their educational and training certificates in one place, providing evidence for the qualifications and skills declared in the CV. It is available for free in 26 languages on the Europass portal where an on-line editor helps users to create their individual passports. It complements the Europass CV which is used by more than 20 million Europeans.

The European Skills Passport helps job-seekers to improve their chances on the labour market and employers to find qualified personnel and it helps citizens communicate their skills and qualifications effectively when looking for a job or training.

The European Skills Passport is one of thirteen actions launched under the Commission´s Agenda for New Skills and Jobs, which aims to boost the EU employment rate to reach 75 % of men and women by 2020. It sets out 13 key actions aimed at reforming labour markets, upgrading skills and matching them with market demand to boost employability and make it easier to move jobs, to improve working conditions and job quality, and to create jobs.
