The European Commission is developing a European Skills, Competences and Occupations taxonomy (ESCO), which will describe the most relevant skills, competences and qualifications needed for several thousand occupations.
ESCO is aimed at institutions and stakeholders in the labour market and education sector. Once finalised, ESCO will be the first classification of its kind available in all EU languages.
To ensure that ESCO meets the needs of its users, interested parties, such as employment services, social partners, companies, education and training institutions or developers of job search web tools, are invited to take part in its development. To get involved or to find out more about the project, please contact the ESCO secretariat
