    _Built prototype to export badges to Europass CV

  • Scenario #1

    Diego has just taken part in an activity with youth workers organization X, which is one of the organizations that has created a profile within the badgecraft platform.

    Diego has accessed the platform in order to get the 3 badges he has earned.

    He also wants to add the badges to the digital version of his Europass CV: he thus uploads the CV and through a simple interface selects all the 3 badges he has earned to be embedded in his CV. Thus, anyone receiving it in digital form will be able to appreciate the metadata they include about Diegos experiences and competences.


  • Scenario #2

    Marina has taken part yet again in an activity with a youth workers organization and accesses the badgecraft platform to earn her new badges. She already owns 45 badges from youth workers organization and she has them all within the Badgecraft backpack.

    She is also sending applications for a job, to different companies. She therefore wants to create different versions of her Europass CV with different badges in each: she knows that too many badges can be confusing and shed rather be to the point selecting the most proper badges according to her addressee.

    She thus uploads her CV and through a simple interface she explores her badges set by filters (e.g. kind of competence, or level of achievement) and manually selects the badges she wants to include. She repeats the operation three times in order to obtain three different versions of her CV, fitting the three companies that she means to address.


  • Scenario #3

    Tom has taken part yet again in an activity with a youth workers organization and accesses the platform to earn his new badges. He already owns 230 badges earned in various circumstances and he has them all stored in the badgecraft platform backpack.

    He is also sending applications for a job, to different companies. He therefore wants to create different versions of his Europass CV with different badges in each: he owns too many badges to want to display them all, every time.

    He therefore explores his set of badges within the backpack and prepares some collections (sort of playlist) of badges according to his needs (e.g. all the badges about a specific competence; all the badges with a very high evaluation, etc.). He saves the different playlists in the system, for future usage.When he prepares his Europass CV for a specific call or application, he can select the best playlist and include it in the CV. He can of course manually adjust the playlist. 20

  • Scenario #4

    Mario just completed his VET mobility. During this experience he learned about Open digital badges. The hosting organisation was using VET badge system to support his learning and monitor achievements. Now he wants to complete his Europass CV and apply for a job position at the representative of European institutions in his country. The job application requires to submit the CV in Europass format.

    On his Badgecraft account, Mario reviews his earned badges from VET, selects and groups the ones that match the expected selection criteria for job candidates. He copies the URL of his badge collection to the relevant sections of his Europass CV.


  • Scenario #5

    Nadine was offered opportunity to apply for a position to work for a European-funded project as a youth worker. Project managers forwarded to her the Word version of Europass CV requesting her to highlight experiences of international youth work. She have relevant experience of being a group leader in youth exchanges and participants in international youth work trainings. All of these projects used mobility badges, therefore she can include some of her earned badge to her Europass CV.
