ESCO needs to be continuously improved to remain an added value for the labour market and the education and training systems, as new emerging occupations and skills are regularly requested by employers and changes in curricula and in terminology are also regularly introduced in education and training programmes. To address these changes it is important to share frequently feedback, suggestions and proposals on how to improve the content and management of the classification with organisations using ESCO and other ESCO stakeholders.
For this the European Commission has organised several “ESCO community fora” to be regularly in touch with different ESCO stakeholders and gather information from them. These fora are accessible from the Forum page.
The Commission has published the the version 1.1 of ESCO.
ESCO v1.1 is the result of a two-year process of quality review of existing concepts, as well as development of new occupational and competence profiles. Click here to learn more about it!
