EU Study Proposes Steps to Improve Recognition of Skills and Qualifications Across Borders

Print page

The European Commission has published a study on the recognition of skills and qualifications, which examines obstructions to the recognition of skills and qualifications across Europe. The study draws on evidence from EU Member States, and identifies the causes of such obstacles, as well as proposing potential solutions.

Included in its recommendations are a call for policy-makers on the EU level to better support national and regional stakeholders in their use and application of the European Qualifications Framework; a proposal for the creation of a single web portal to bring together information on the recognition of skills and qualifications across Europe; and a recommendation that vulnerable groups are supported by all levels of government through recognition of their skills and qualifications.

More information can be found on the website of the European Commission.
