Short description:
Within the larger framework of recognising and validating non-formal education in Czech Republic, the Personal Competencies Portfolio (PCP) provides its users with an opportunity to self-assess competencies developed and translate them into a language accessible both for formal education and the employment field. The PCP provides a picture of the acquired competences (e.g. soft skills, knowledge, and educational experiences) that are usable for and transferable to different life situations as well as with regard to the constantly changing labour market.  It is well integrated into the National Qualification Framework in the Czech Republic.
