ESCO can be used by developers as a building block for different types of applications that provide services such as autocomplete, suggestion systems, job search algorithms and job matching algorithms. The ESCO classification is composed of modules that contain elements such as occupations, knowledge, skills and competences, qualifications, and the International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO) hierarchy. When combined and interrelated, these modules make up the whole classification. Here you can select your modules and can prepare your custom package of datasets of the ESCO classification to download.
Note: The separate language independent file download feature is currently unavailable due to technical issues.
However, all files are accessible within the language specific folder as described below. We apologize for inconvenience.
Once you have downloaded the dataset in the desired language, you will as well find the files containing the relationships between the ESCO concepts (language independent): broaderRelationsOccPillar; broaderRelationsSkillPillar; occupationSkillRelations; skillSkillRelations.
In case of any technical help needed, please use the ESCO contact form.
