The European Commission has launched a Ukrainian version of the EU Skills Profile Tool for Third Country Nationals. The Tool will make it easier for people fleeing Russian’s invasion of Ukraine to map their skills and find jobs and other opportunities.
The European Commission has launched a Ukrainian version of the EU Skills Profile Tool for Third Country Nationals. The Tool will make it easier for people to map their skills and find jobs and other opportunities.
The EU Skills Profile Tool, in the form of a questionnaire, is already available in 31 languages.
Many organisations that offer assistance to refugees and migrants use it to conduct interviews to record individuals’ skills, qualifications and experience. As a follow-up, the refugees can get advice on next steps towards jobs or learning, for example on the recognition of foreign diplomas or language courses.
Since 2019, 40.000 people have made a skills profile via the Tool. More information on how the Tool is used can be found here.
Together with other initiatives, the Tool will contribute to making skills and qualifications from Ukrainians more easily understood and recognised across the EU. It will also facilitate access to information on where to get support for recognition or reconstitution of diplomas.
This will help the integration of people arriving from Ukraine into the EU labour markets and wider society. A better understanding of the skills that people bring and the needs they have can also help EU countries and the organisations assisting refugees adapt their services.
The translation of the Tool into Ukrainian is part of the European Commission’s actions to welcome millions of people who have fled Ukraine following the Russian invasion.
