Cedefop analysed recent Europass activity to glean information on the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on national labour markets. Results show a correlation between the number of CVs generated online and the seriousness of the coronavirus crisis in each country.
Cedefop received a group of 75 young people and youth workers representing Cyprus, Greece, Hungary and Turkey on 2 May. The group consisted of blind, visually impaired and sighted youngsters.
Europass users and stakeholders involved in Cedefop’s skills forecasts have the chance to evaluate the two projects by completing brief online questionnaires by 27 April.
MEPs Anne Sander, Siôn Simon and Emilian Pavel, members of the European Parliament’s Committee on Employment and Social Affairs (EMPL), visited Cedefop on 12 and 13 February and had a fruitful exchange of views with management and staff.
Between February 2005 and July 2017, 100 million Europass CVs were created online and 60 million CV templates downloaded, according to figures just released.
Europe Direct information centres from three Greek cities (Thessaloniki, Xanthi and Komotini) organised the first EU jobs and mobility roadshow in northern Greece (10-15 October) with active Cedefop participation.
