As part of the New Skills Agenda for Europe, the European Commission has developed a Skills Profile Tool to support early profiling of the skills of refugees, migrants and other third country nationals*.
What is it?
The EU Skills Profile Tool for Third Country Nationals is intended for use by any services that may be offering assistance to third country nationals and should be used in an interview situation to get to know the individual, their skills, qualifications and experiences.
The focus of the tool is to help individuals produce a profile of their skills and to help an adviser identify any recommendations or next steps. The information collected can be used to:
- support further assessment,
- form a basis for offering guidance,
- identify up-skilling needs,
- support job-searching and job-matching.
The tool is not intended as a recognition or authentication tool.
