Online Linguistic Support (OLS)
The tool is designed to assist Erasmus+ participants in improving their knowledge of the language in which they will work, study or volunteer abroad so that they can make the most out of this experience.
Online Linguistic Support for Refugees
In the light of the current migration crisis, the tool aims to support the efforts of EU Member States to integrate refugees into Europe's education and training systems, and ensure their skills development. The tool is open to refugees, organisations supporting refugees and Erasmus+ beneficiary institutions/organisations.
Whether you are planning to enrol in an education or training programme, looking for a job, or getting experience abroad, it is important to be able to make your skills and competences clearly understood. Europass with its five documents (Curriculum Vitae, Language Passport, Europass Mobility, Certificate Supplement and Diploma Supplement) enables European citizens to make their skills and qualifications visible.

It covers the eight main fields of action identified in the 2010-2018 EU Youth Strategy: education and training, employment and entrepreneurship, health and well-being, participation, voluntary activities, social inclusion, youth and the world, and creativity and culture.
European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS)
Credit system designed to make it easier for students to move between different countries. Since they are based on the learning achievements and workload of a course, a student can transfer their ECTS credits from one university to another so they are added up to contribute to an individual's degree programme or training.
The European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET)
ECVET is a device in which qualifications are expressed in units of learning outcomes to which credit points are attached, and which is combined with a procedure for validating learning outcomes. The aim is to make it easier for people to get validation and recognition of work-related skills and knowledge acquired in different systems and countries, so that they can count towards vocational qualifications. To make more attractive to move between different countries and learning environments, increase the compatibility between the different vocational education and training (VET) systems in place across Europe, and the qualifications they offer and increase the employability of VET graduates and the confidence of employers that each VET qualification requires specific skills and knowledge.
