ESCO plays an important role in implementing the new Europass framework
In July 2020, the Commission released two minor versions of ESCO (v1.0.6 and v1.0.7). In the new versions descriptions of ESCO concepts are available in 27 languages and qualification data have been moved to Europass.
In the World Youth Skills day, ESCO demonstrates its contribution towards the achievement of a sustainable integration of the younger generations in the labour market.
An interactive visual tool that offers a unique overview of skills that occur most frequently across occupations in every sector, where sectors are grouped by the level of impact of Covid-19 on their economic output.
This report covers developments in ESCO during 2019 and the work done by the Commission to ensure the continuous improvement of the classification as well as to support its uptake in the labour market and in the world of education and training.
Get to know ESCO
ESCO is the multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations. ESCO is part of the Europe 2020 strategy.
The ESCO classification identifies and categorises skills, competences, qualifications and occupations relevant for the EU labour market and education and training. It systematically shows the relationships between the different concepts.
