Becase calling a spade, a spade, is not easy within the EU labour market, ESCO, the European skills/competences qualifications and occupation is being developed in order to bring some light to the existing differences and similarities, facilitating job mobility and job matching across the EU.

ESCO is meant to include all occupations, from the lowest to the highest levels of education and training. Nowadays, "ESCO provides descriptions of 2942 occupations and 13.485 skills linked to these occupations, translated into 27 languages (all official EU languages plus Icelandic, Norwegian and Arabic)". It is a brilliant idea with a challenging implementation, requiring the contribution from all stakeholders.

In this sense, IPERIA, coordinator of the Erasmus+ SSA project PRODOME (Professionalising domestic housekeepers) has contributed to it by using the classification and by proposing updates and adjustments to the occupation "5152 domestic housekeeper".

A thread at ESCO forum has been created, now that PRODOME has reached its end and delivered its main conclusions.
