The Europass Language Passport is the perfect way to promote your language skills, qualifications and experience to employers. It is an ideal accompaniment to your CV if you are applying for a job requiring language aptitude.
It contains three sections:
- The self-assessment section, which allows you to record the level of language ability according to a well-recognised
European Scale (the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR)).
This is particularly useful if you do not have a qualification – for example where you have grown up in a multilingual household, self-taught, or learned through immersion.
- A language qualifications section, for recording the results of formal language courses you have taken.
- A linguistic experience section, to record examples of how you have used your languages in practice.
