What is Europass?
Europass is a new initiative which aims to help people make their skills and qualifications clearly and easily understood in Europe, thus facilitating the mobility of both learners and workers. The Europass documents have been designed in such a way as to help people chronicle their skills and competences in a coherent manner, whether they are planning to enroll in an education or training programme, looking for a job, or getting experience abroad.
Europass consists of a portfolio of five documents as follows:
Two documents which individuals can complete independently:
- Europass Curriculum Vitae (CV)
- Europass Language Passport
Three documents which are completed by the competent organisation on behalf of the individual:
- Europass Mobility
- Europass Certificate Supplement
- Europass Diploma Supplement
The Irish National Europass Centre (NEC) is located within the National Qualifications Authority of Ireland. It is the national agency for Europass in Ireland and represents Ireland in the European network for Europass.
For students who complete an Erasmus + Project through Moate Business College they will be presented with a Europass Mobility Certificate in recognition for the time and work in a European Country.
Certificates are presented to participants in the Annual College Graduation in November.
