The Europass is a document of acquired education, which describes the expertise of its owner in more detail than a university diploma or an apprentice certificate. In 2011, 60 thousand graduates of secondary schools and vocational schools obtained it in the Czech Republic.

 
 
The Europass is the first standardized European set of documents concerning education, personal qualifications, language skills, expert qualification and work experience of its owner. It offers information about its owner in a manner that is easily understandable not only in his or her mother country but also abroad. It is valid and comprehensible in other EU countries and facilitates better mobility of EU citizens.

The Europass comprises of 5 basic documents: CV, Language Passport, Mobility (document about internships abroad), Certificate Supplement and Diploma Supplement. It is these two supplements that are the most desired among Czech students as both documents specify in foreign language the education and the expertise of its owner. The supplement facilitates comprehension of what an apprentice certificate or a maturita exam means for a foreign employer. That is the same for a university diploma, too. You will find more detailed information about the europass here.
