How does using this document benefit my organisation?
The Europass Certificate Supplement provides additional information alongside the
official certificate for vocational qualifications, therefore making these
qualifications more easily understood for employers. As more and more graduates seek
work outside of their own country, the Europass Certificate Supplement is
increasingly being used as a tool to provide a more comprehensive overview of
the skills these graduates have obtained and helps employers to choose the best
candidate for any given position.
The Europass Certificate Supplement provides detailed, user friendly information
which allows employers to quickly and easily identify the relevant attributes and
skills they are looking for in an individual.
By issuing the Europass Certificate Supplement, the Awarding Organisation
aids graduates in finding work and obtaining better recognition of their qualifications. This
in turn reflects well on the organisation by making their qualifications more transferable
and encouraging more students to enrol.
