is the multilingual classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations. It identifies and categorises skills/competences, qualifications and occupations relevant for the EU labour market and education and training, in 25 European languages. The system provides occupational profiles showing the relationships between occupations, skills/competences and qualifications.

ESCO is the only European standard terminology linking skills and competences and qualifications to occupations and will be available free of charge to all labour market, education institutions and other stakeholders.
