The EU Skills Profile Tool for Third Country Nationals has recently made changes to improve users’ experience. The tool helps individuals produce a profile of their job-related skills, as well as helping advisors make recommendations or identify next steps.
The new layout of the tool provides for a more structured organisation, adds a new feature enabling the creation of custom questionnaires and makes it possible to hide questionnaire sections that might be irrelevant in some settings.
Additionally, the tool’s underlying software code will also be released under a free and open source license on Joinup, enabling government agencies and other organisations to implement their own versions of the tool in a way that is suitable for their own needs.
Launched in June 2017, the EU Skills Profile Tool supports the early identification and documentation of the skills and work experiences of third-country nationals in the EU. By mapping their qualifications and experiences, the tool is able to help migrants’ integration in the labour market and fosters their contribution to the growth and competitiveness of the EU economy.
