A new Europass CV (template and online editor) was launched on 12 December 2012. Improvements include:
- more user-friendly online interface with direct preview of the final document;
- new headings: Personal website, Instant messaging, Language certificate(s);
- improved tutorials for better structured information: description of projects, conferences, publications, etc.;
- new graphical identity for better legibility of Europass CV generated: new font, use of colours, simplified headings, etc.
Also, the European Skills Passport was launched together with the new CV. The ESP is a user-friendly electronic folder to help students, workers or job-seekers build up personal, modular inventory of personal skills and qualifications acquired throughout life.
he European Skills Passport can contain a range of documents (Language Passport, copies of degrees, attestations of employment, etc.).
