Experts, Commissioners, politicians and other stakeholders in the fields of education, employment and migration gathered on 19 and 20 June to launch the EU Skills Profile Tool for Third Country Nationals.

The tool is meant to support early identification of the skills of refugees, migrants and other third country nationals and has been developed by the Commission.

During the event there were four interviews on the importance of skills identification for integration, in addition to a panel discussion and several speeches. Marianne Thyssen, Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs, Skills and Labour Mobility visited a reception centre and tested the tool. Michel Servoz, Director-General of the Commission's Directorate-General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion delivered the closing address.

The tool is intended for use by any service that may be offering assistance services to third country nationals and aims to get to know the individual, their skills and experiences and provide recommendations on next steps.

The tool is not intended to recognise or authenticate skills.
