The European Commission has launched the full version of the European classification of Skills, Competences, Occupations and Qualifications (ESCO)

The European Commission has launched the first full version of the European classification of Skills, Competences, Occupations and Qualifications (ESCO). The classification is available in 26 languages (the 24 EU languages, Icelandic and Norwegian). ESCO facilitates the dialogue between labour market and the education/training sector by providing a common language that could help overcome labour market imbalances and increase occupational and geographical mobility in the EU.

 

It covers 2 942 occupations, 13 485 knowledge, skills and competences and will progressively display information on qualifications provided by the Member States.

 

The publication of ESCO is a milestone in the achievement of objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy and the New Skills Agenda for Europe.

 

ESCO is accessible through the ESCO service platform.
