Certificate Supplement

Certificate Supplement

The Europass Certificate Supplement provides information about any vocational education and training you have completed.

The Europass Certificate Supplement is an appendix to vocational qualification certificates. It provides additional information to that which is already included in the official certificate, making it more easily understood by employers and institutions both inside and outside the issuing county.

Where do I get one?

The Europass Certificate Supplement is issued by the awarding body (i.e. the authority that awards the original vocational certificate) but Europass provides the template, guidelines and additional information where necessary to that awarding body. The Europass Certificate Supplement will be automatically issued to you upon completion of your course. If your qualification provider does not currently issue the Europass Certificate Supplement you can ask them to contact us.

If your awarding body is VTCT, the Europass Certificate Supplement can be downloaded from the VTCT database.

Please note that the Europass Certificate Supplement is not a replacement for your final award. Rather it is a means of providing others (e.g. employers) with more information about your skills and competences. The Europass Certificate Supplement should be presented alongside your final award certificate.
