In every member state (EU and EEA), a National Reference Point which gives access to information on the vocational education and training system has been established.
The key functions of the NRP centre are as follows:
- Act as a first point of contact when questions relating to vocational education and training qualifications, certificates and certificate supplements arise
- Have direct access to relevant information or be in contact with the relevant national bodies which have the information
- Either be able to answer questions themselves or transfer them to the competent agency
- Be a national partner in a European network of reference centres with similar responsibilities.
The links to the National Reference Points for vocational qualifications in other countries are published on the Europass portal website, please click to view the links page.
