Transparency and Validation of Professional Linguistic Skills (TRANSVALP)

The Lisbon Strategy prioritised the recognition of vocational qualifications in Europe, and resulted in the 'New Europass', which aimed to increase transparency and recognition of competences, thus helping transnational mobility. TRANSVALP also resulted from this development; using an on-line evaluation system to recognise vocational language competences, it allows users (workers, the unemployed and trainees) to demonstrate their competences when applying for jobs or as part of their career development.
