New Europass

Europass has been in use for over ten years, and now it is time for it to undergo a comprehensive reform. We are switching from a document-based system to a web-based service platform. The new service offers citizens a wide range of tools and services supporting job-searching and studies.

New Digital Service Platform

The new Europass service platform will provide information about study opportunities, qualifications, qualification frameworks, as well as on opportunities for having skills and qualifications recognised. A common CV model will be available, as before, as well as other tools that can be used to describe the skills and competencies gained through working and learning experiences, including mobility and volunteering.

The new platform will also make available tools that support individuals to assess their skills. Users will also be offered a possibility to store and manage their own data on the service platform.

The new Europass will be linked to other European Union tools and services, such as the EURES portal, in order to ensure better service to citizens.

Development as a Step by Step Process

The new platform will be developed step by step with the aim of opening the service at the end of 2019. The platform will be developed from a user experience approach.

Europass in Finland

Europass was launched in 1.1.2005. It was developed to support individuals searching for working or learning opportunities in Europe. Core Europass documents are the common European CV model and the supplements to diplomas and certificates. Over the past twelve years, Europass has gained millions of users and has been continuously developed according to the users' needs.

The Finnish National Agency for Education has coordinated the Europass activities in Finland from the beginning and continues with developing, implementing and informing about the new Europass.
The Europass decision is part of the New Skills Agenda for Europe, presented in June 2016.
