ESCO - European Skills/Competences, Qualifications and Occupations - A tool for the European labour market
ESCO - already a part of the European labormarket
The aim of ESCO is to support job mobility across Europe and therefore a more integrated and efficient labor market, by offering a “common language” on occupations and skills that can be used by different stakeholders on employment and education and training topics.
Why is ESCO needed
People change jobs and employers more frequently than in the past, new skills are regularly needed and geographical and occupational mobility is increasing. Online talent platforms, such as job boards and social media, are transforming the way recruitment takes place. Employers and job seekers increasingly use digital tools to publish and apply for job offers or to look for and offer training opportunities. Companies and education and training providers need clear and updated information on skills and qualifications to better manage talent and to address skills gaps on education and training programmes.ESCO concepts and descriptions can help people to understand:
