Module 1: My Europass documents

1. What is Europass?

Europass is a Europe-wide recognized skills validation instrument. It was established by the EU commission and CEDEFOP in 1998 and since then it has been working towards improving transparency around the issue of vocational qualifications. In doing so, it aims at:

  • removing obstacles to mobility of workers within Europe;

  • stimulating dialogue between existing initiatives, instruments and institutions;

  • encouraging the implementation of policies and new initiatives. 

The main result of the Europass initiative is a set of easy to use and free of charge documents.

On the 1st of July 2020, a brand new Europass platform was launched.
