Recognition or certification of learning The recognition of professional skills will be done through the establishment of specific Technical-Scientific Committees, formed by experts from the academic world and from the business/industry world. These experts will be grouped in committees in terms of the types of professional certification to recognise. The recognition will take place through the analysis of the following documents that have to be submitted by refugees and immigrants for the Commission evaluation:
  • Qualifications (titles of study)
  • Certifications
  • Professional experience
  • The professional skills will be framed in the context of the European Qualification Framework (EQF).
    The analysis of the documents mentioned above will allow Commissions, composed of technicians and representatives of the world of work, to elaborate a Certificate of Skills. This certificate will represent a tool to integrate refugees and immigrants in the labour market.
