  • Security key (such as Yubikey);

    Why are you enabling two factor authentication?

    Enabling Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the most effective measures to combat credential theft. It requires a second piece of information beyond username and password. This can be a knowledge factor (something the user knows e.g. a PIN), a possession factor (something the user has e.g. a security token, a mobile device or smartphone app) or a biometric factor (e.g. fingerprints, facial and voice recognition). By providing a second layer of authentication, 2FA increases the security of data to a much greater extend. If, for instance, a password is compromised, it offers another layer of protection to block unauthorized access.

    The European Commission has set the use of 2FA, particularly EU Login 2FA, mandatory for its IT systems handling Sensitive Non-Classified (SNC) information and strongly recommended for its IT systems handling ‘Publicly available’ and ‘Commission use’ information.

    Why should I use 2FA?

    Using 2FA ensures additional data security and reduces fraudulent activities. This way, you can access your account from any system or environment without any risk to your personal and sensitive data.

    Where do I find the QR code?

    First, on your desktop device, you need to add a mobile device to your EU login account. Open a browser on your PC and follow this link.

    You will be prompted to authenticate. Then click on "Add a mobile device" in the browser on your PC. Once you have followed the steps through, a QR code will be generated.  You can find further details on page 12 of the user guide.

    My QR code reader states that the code is invalid. What do I do?

    Note that you need to read the QR code with the EU login app, not with your regular QR code reader.

    I am already using eID to log in to Europass. Do I need to activate it as a second factor?

    No, if you are already using eID to sign in to Europass, you can continue logging in as you have previously. You do not need to activate two factor authentication separately.

    How do I activate eID as a second factor for authentication?

    To link your eID (electronic ID) to your EU Login account:

    • Log into your EU login account,
    • Go to your settings and click on Link my eID.

    This option can link your national electronic identity card to your EU Login account.

    Then, complete the process according to the steps explained in the instructions document.

    Predloge Europass

    Kaj je skupni evropski referenčni okvir za jezike (CEFR)?

    Skupni evropski referenčni okvir za jezike je okvir Sveta Evrope, ki se uporablja za opis dosežkov učečih se pri učenju tujih jezikov. CEFR zagotavlja metodo za učenje, poučevanje in ocenjevanje, ki velja za vse jezike v Evropi. CEFR vključuje šest referenčnih ravni, ki se uporabljajo za razumevanje znanja jezika po vsej Evropi. Za pomoč ljudem pri samoocenjevanju znanja jezika se v profilu Europass uporablja preglednica CEFR za samoocenjevanje.

    Kaj je potrdilo o mobilnosti Europass?

    Potrdilo o mobilnosti Europass vam lahko pomaga predstaviti znanja in spretnosti, ki ste jih pridobili v okviru programov mobilnosti v drugi državi.

    Kaj je priloga k spričevalu Europass?

    Priloga k spričevalu Europass vam lahko pomaga jasno in usklajeno opisati kvalifikacije, ki ste jih pridobili s poklicnim izobraževanjem in usposabljanjem.

    Kaj je priloga k diplomi?

    Priloga k diplomi vam lahko pomaga jasno in usklajeno opisati kvalifikacije, ki ste jih pridobili z visokošolskim izobraževanjem.

    Kaj se je zgodilo z jezikovno izkaznico Europass?

    Jezikovna izkaznica Europass je bila oblikovana leta 2004 kot ena od predlog dokumentov Europass, kot orodje za samoocenjevanje jezikovnih spretnosti in znanja ter kvalifikacij.

    Sedanji Europass vključuje jezikovno izkaznico v profilu Europass v rubriki jezikovne spretnosti in znanje. Na podlagi skupnega evropskega referenčnega okvira za jezike (CEFR) lahko še vedno sami ocenite svoje jezikovne kompetence ter jih po potrebi posredujete delodajalcem ali izobraževalnim ustanovam.

    Kako naj sam/-a ocenim svoje jezikovne spretnosti in znanje?

    Svoje jezikovne spretnosti in znanje lahko sami ocenite v svojem profilu Europass. Samoocenjevanje znanj in spretnosti pomeni, da razmislite o svojih znanjih in spretnostih ter opišete njihove ravni. Jezikovne spretnosti in znanje opišete tako, da v svojem profilu Europass izpolnite enostavno preglednico za samoocenjevanje. Vse opise lahko preberete v orodju za samoocenjevanje in izberete raven, ki po vašem mnenju najbolje opiše vaša znanja in spretnosti na področju poslušanja, branja, govornega sporazumevanja, govorjenja in pisanja v poljubnem jeziku. V knjižnico Europass lahko shranite tudi potrdila o znanju jezika. Orodje za samoocenjevanje uporablja skupni evropski referenčni okvir za jezike (CEFR).

    Dostop do preglednice za samoocenjevanje v profilu Europass lahko zagotovite drugim, kot so delodajalci in ustanove za izobraževanje ali usposabljanje.

    Kako naj opišem svoja digitalna znanja in spretnosti?

    Digitalna znanja in spretnosti lahko navedete in organizirate v svojem profilu Europass. Ustvarite lahko seznam vseh svojih digitalnih znanj in spretnosti, vključite tudi orodja in programsko opremo, ki jih znate uporabljati, pa tudi projekte ali dosežke, na katere ste ponosni. Opišete lahko orodja, ki jih uporabljate pri svojem delu ali izobraževanju, pa tudi orodja, ki jih uporabljate v prostem času (npr. uporaba družbenih medijev, pisanje spletnega dnevnika, igranje iger). Svoja znanja in spretnosti lahko tudi organizirate v različne skupine, npr. ustvarite skupino digitalnih orodij, ki jih uporabljate za oblikovanje, sklop digitalnih znanj in spretnosti, ki jih uporabljate pri svojem delu, ali celo seznam digitalnih znanj in spretnosti, ki bi jih radi pridobili.

    Kaj je potni list znanj in spretnosti Europass?

    Evropski potni list znanj in spretnosti je orodje, ki je bilo na voljo v Europassu do leta 2019. Uporabnikom je omogočalo zbiranje dokumentov v eni sami datoteki. Evropski potni list znanj in spretnosti ni več na voljo, vendar pa lahko registrirani uporabniki zdaj zagotavljajo dostop do dokumentov iz svojih knjižnic Europass.

Informacije o EOK so lahko vključene v spričevala o kvalifikacijah, prilogo k diplomi ali prilogo k spričevalu. Podatke o ravni EOK svojih kvalifikacij lahko vključite v svoj življenjepis in prijave, da jih bodo delodajalci ali ustanove za izobraževanje in usposabljanje v drugih državah lažje razumele.
