The third assessment session organised in the context of the pilot project “European Qualifications Passport for Refugees” took place in Athens on 25-29 September 2017.
29 applicants had their qualifications assessed and 19 candidates were issued the “European Qualifications Passport for Refugees”. Participants from Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Iran, Pakistan and Syria were interviewed by credential evaluators, members of ENIC/NARIC centers of Greece, Italy, Norway and the United Kingdom.
Representatives of ENICs from Germany and the Netherlands, representatives of 3 Greek universities and a representative of the UNHCR Office in Greece took part in some of the interviews as observers.
The project “European Qualifications Passport for Refugees” aims to support refugees by promoting a methodology to assess refugees’ qualifications in absence of full documentation.
Refugees fleeing their countries might not have with them the documents proving their education qualifications. The “European Qualifications Passport for Refugees” aims to help refugees to be admitted to further studies or enter the job market in the host country.
