Mobility

The Europass Mobility Document records skills and competences acquired through an organised period of learning or training abroad.

Organisations across Europe often provide learning or training opportunities to individuals from a range of different backgrounds to help them achieve their potential. One of the key difficulties for the individual is being able to record the skills they have learned and back the skills up with evidence. This is where Europass Mobility can help.

Europass Mobility provides an opportunity for individuals to record and promote Lifelong Learning Programme activities. It describes the placement and show the skills gained during the programme activity. It records the linguistic, practical, IT, personal, social, work-based and ‘soft’ skills that the participant has gained during a placement. When it comes to recruitment or education admissions, Europass Mobility helps an organisation to find the individual that stands out from the crowd.

The process involves three participants; the individual taking part in the placement, a ‘sending’ organisation and a ‘host’ organisation.

Sending Organisation

By registering with Europass Mobility, organisations can help individuals identify the skills and experiences they gain when they are sent on work or study placements within Europe. Under the Europass Mobility scheme organisations can help an individual identify conducted activities which will help them develop new skills and competences. All the organisation has to do is register on the Europass website.

Here is a video tutorial of the registration process:

Guidelines on completing the Europass Mobility Document are available to download.

Host Organisation

A host is any organisation offering a short course, voluntary activity or work placement to the individual. Host Organisations should describe the skills and competences an individual has gained as a result of the experience and record these in the Europass Mobility document.

If you would like more information about the Europass Mobility Document a case study and an example of a completed Europass Document can be downloaded.
