Workshop report: The Use of Skills Logbooks, Skills Passports, and other Mechanisms to Improve the Portability of Skills and Qualifications

The second workshop under the Global Skills Partnership on Migration (GSPM) brought together representatives of key international and national organisations, involved in work that deploys technology to enhance the recognition of skills and qualifications of migrant workers and refugees. It provided an opportunity to discuss recent developments and challenges of skills logbooks, skills passports and other skills portability mechanisms and explore the potential for more coordinated action using these tools along different stages of the migration cycle: recruitment, pre-departure, pre-employment, career progression and upon return.
