“EU Skills Profile Tool for Third-Country Nationals”
Skills Profile Tool was released to ensure the recognition of skills and education of non-EU nationals by organisations that work with migrants. It is a web editor that works in off/online modes and allows non-EU individuals present their qualifications, skills, and experiences in a way to be understood by their job and education providers or institutions working with migrants across EU. The integration of non-EU nationals into the labour market is crucial and must be constantly re-thought and innovated to fit the ever-changing political situation.
