The Employment Skills Pass

Quality Standard for Faster Transition from Education to Employment

EMPASS is a 36-months project financed by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency under the Erasmus+ Forward Looking Programme. It aims to develop an employability micro-credential programme for the scarce soft skills in the labour market in order to address youth unemployment and to speed up the achievement of the European Education Area (EEA).

In close collaboration with industry/employability partners and TVET institutions, EMPASS will drive a soft skill needs analysis in Greece, Romania and Spain and develop and test an innovative training programme able to certify the most needed soft skills for entry level workers. The employability micro-credential EMPASS will be a support for employers to assess the skill level of potential employees, while it will also aid TVET institutions to ensure work readiness of their students.

In the framework of the project, the micro-credential programme will be piloted with 1.500 students in Greece, Romania and Spain, before it will be finalised for scale-up and Europe-wide distribution.
