European Classification of Skills/Competences, Qualifications and Occupations
ESCO is the multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations.
It identifies and categorises skills/competences, qualifications and occupations relevant for the EU labour market and education and training, in 25 European languages. The system provides occupational profiles showing the relationships between occupations, skills/competences and qualifications.
ESCO has been developed in an open IT format, is available for use free of charge by everyone and can be accessed through an online portal.
