A PERSONALITY TEST: TO REVEAL YOUR POTENTIAL AND TALENTS
The Assess First personality test has been designed to reveal your personality, your motivations, and your type of reasoning.
“We believe that behavioral science and Artificial Intelligence are tools that—used wisely—have the power to make the world better by allowing each individual to find the place where they belong, based on their talents, values and life goals.” (source : Site www.assessfirst.com)
TAKE ME UP applicants will take this personality test when they register for the program. Later, each participant will an opportunity to discuss the results with a coach who will help to understand your motivations and your personality.
A EUROPEAN FORMATTED CV WITH EUROPASS
All the TAKE ME UP program participants will build their own EUROPASS portfolio.
This portfolio, developed by the European Union, is a standard document recognized in every European country. Its implementation and systematic use facilitate the understanding of individual skill sets and mobility between countries.
Europass allows you to showcase your achievements and skills (education, professional experience, language abilities, etc.) and makes it easier to look for a job or continue your education elsewhere.
The portfolio contains four complementary documents.
Three of the documents can be completed online by the participant:
- The Europass CV
- The European Skills Passport
- The Europass Language Passport
EARN 60 ECTS CREDITS
The European Credits Transfer System (ECTS) increases the transparency and academic recognition of skills and qualification acquired by students during each semester of their education.
As each semester of higher education corresponds to 30 ECTS credits, an academic year corresponds to 60 credits.
Thanks to this system, the skills acquired during the TAKE ME UP program are recognized in countries belonging to the European Union and the European Free Trade Association.
Depending on what you choose to do after TAKE ME UP, you should be able to gain academic recognition of some of these credits.
