Creación de certificados paso a paso

Participants of approved projects of the Erasmus+ Youth and European Solidarity Corps programmes have the right to receive recognition for their participation and learning in the projects. The Youthpass certificate is the instrument that has been developed for this purpose.

The certificates are issued by the organisation or a youth worker/leader involved in the project. Depending on the type of the project this role can be taken by a group leader, coach, mentor, trainer or a team member. To produce Youthpass certificates, please follow the step by step instructions below, guiding you through the production process.

Paso 1: Regístrate con Youthpass

Please register on the Youthpass website, entering your personal details. After registering, the password will be sent to you by e-mail. Upon your first visit, please change the password through the 'Edit your personal details' link.

To be able to create certificates, you will also need to enter your organisation details. You can do so once you log into your account and click on the 'Manage your organisations' link. Please ensure the information is entered correctly because the information about the organisation will also be displayed on the Youthpass certificate. In case you are about to create certificates on behalf of another organisation, you can add the other organisation to your account at a later stage.

Please note that you can only upload one logo image per organisation.

Paso 2: Introducir los datos del proyecto

Después de ingresar el número de subvención de su proyecto, proporcione los detalles de su proyecto aprobado. Asegúrese de que los datos estén correctamente cumplimentados y compruebe si hay errores de escritura, ya que esta información se mostrará en los certificados.

Paso 3: Introducir los datos del proyecto

Please enter the activity(ies) of your project. Your project may include only one activity (such as a Youth Exchange) or several activities (such as a preparatory visit and a Youth Exchange). You can continue adding new activities (and entering/editing the relevant activity data) as you wish for your project. However, please pay attention to adding only the activities that are relevant to the individuals for whom you wish to generate certificates (for example a preparatory visit where the participants took part may be relevant, whereas a preparatory meeting of partners would not be relevant). Please pay attention to entering the correct information and keep the information concise as this information may be displayed on the certificates.

Important: If the certificate is issued for only one activity, the information you will enter in the "Activity title" and "Activity description" fields will overwrite the information you entered in the project details (in the "Project title" and "Project description" fields).

Paso 4: Ingrese individuos

Please provide the details of the individuals in your project. You will need to choose whether a certain individual for whom you will generate certificates was a participant or a team member. This choice may influence the competence framework offered to describe the learning outcomes.

Make sure that the details are filled in correctly and check for typing mistakes, as this information will be displayed on the certificates.

The following tips may be useful:

You can upload a spreadsheet with all individuals' data, instead of entering the information one by one. The spreadsheet has to meet the following minimum criteria: 1) The first row of the table contains headings for the columns; 2) Each following row represents one individual; 3) The minimum data to upload from the file is the first and the last name of the individuals, in separate columns. However, we suggest you to upload the country of residence and email address as well, in order to avoid doing this manually at a later stage.

You can invite the individuals to insert or edit their own details and to write up their self-assessment. For sending an automated invitation to the participants, please make sure you have entered their e-mail addresses.

Paso 5: Validar y generar certificados

Por favor, valide los certificados proporcionando el lugar y la fecha de la firma, así como el nombre completo del representante de su organización que firma el certificado.

Los certificados se generan como un archivo pdf. Para abrir el archivo, necesita Adobe Reader. Puede descárguelo de forma gratuita haciendo clic aquí o en el icono de la derecha. Una vez que se han generado los certificados, están listos para imprimirse y firmarse.

Información adicional

The technical tool for producing Youthpass is designed in a way that permits you to prepare the certificates before your activity starts: you can fill in a large part of the requested information that is known already (e.g. project details, activity details, individuals' details, etc.) and save it. This way you can gain some time and better focus on the descriptions of the learning outcomes during and at the end of the project.

Si desea trabajar en su proyecto con varias personas, tiene la posibilidad de agregarlas como editores. También puede habilitar YANS - Sistema de notificación automática de Youthpass - para su proyecto y mantenerse actualizado con sus tareas relacionadas con Youthpass.
