The Europass was the result of the work of the European Commission and Cedofop. The goals were that of having a uniform transparency in vocational qualifications, which eventually developed what now is called the Europass. There are two major frameworks that guide the Europass standards. These are the European Credit Transfer for Vocational Education and Training (VET) and the European Quality Assurance for VET. Among other benefits, the Europass removes obstacles to mobilitywhichexistedbecauseoflackoftransparencyinVET.
Presently, Global University in Malta managed to include in its Europass curriculum the Christian Service program (European Qualification Framework /Malta Qualification Framework (EQF/MQF) 3). All undergraduate certificates and the BSB have a level 5 while all BAs are level 6. MAs and the MDiv programs are level 7 (see attachment). Currently, I am working on the application of for the Christian Life Series for an MQF level 2. Consequently, GU students that enroll from the Maltese office have all the benefits that the Europass offers in Malta. One of the benefits is that our credits are recognized in 52 countries (download PDF). This is one reason why Global University in the US is encouraging their offices around the world to notify their students with this opportunity.
