Hi All,

The Skills Profile action of the New Skills Agenda for Europe was launched recently:

This month we see the publication of the EU Skills Profile Tool for Third Country Nationals which is intended to support service providers to assist TCNs enter the labour market. It is essentially a template for interviews (in all EU languages plus Arabic, Farsi, Pashto, Sorani, Somali and Tigrinya) and helps to structure skills profiles. You can see the EU Skills Profile Tool for Third Country Nationals for which DG EMPL would appreciate feedback.
