Classification of Fields of Training

"Sub-classification to the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED-97) by field of education which has been created with the double objective of providing more detail and precision for the purpose of collecting policy-relevant data on fields of vocational education and training, while simultaneously maintaining the logic and structure of ISCED. The Classification on 'Fields of Training' has been replaced since the beginning of 1999 by the 'Classification of fields of education and training'."

Multilingual Classification of European Skills, Competences, Qualifications and Occupations

"ESCO identifies and categorises skills/competences, qualifications and occupations relevant for the EU labour market and education and training, in 22 European languages. It provides occupational profiles showing which competences and qualifications are relevant for an occupation. ESCO is developed in an open IT format that can be used by third parties' software. It can be accessed through the ESCO portal and is available free of charge to everyone."

International Standard Classification of Education

"As national education systems vary in terms of structure and curricular content, it can be difficult to benchmark performance across countries over time or monitor progress towards national and international goals. In order to understand and properly interpret the inputs, processes and outcomes of education systems from a global perspective, it is vital to ensure that data are comparable. This can be done by applying the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED), the standard framework used to categorise and report cross-nationally comparable education statistics.

Australian Standard Classification of Education

"The Australian Standard Classification of Education (ASCED) is a new Australian standard classification and replaces the ABS Classification of Qualifications (ABSCQ). ASCED is comprised of two component classifications, Level of Education and Field of Education. It provides a basis for comparable administrative and statistical data on educational activities and attainment classified by level and field.

VOCED Thesaurus

"This thesaurus is based on the original APSDEP Thesaurus, produced in 1993 by the International Labour Organisation's Asian and Pacific Skills Development Programme (ILO/APSDEP). Selected appropriate terms from the APSDEP thesaurus have been merged with terms from a supplement, produced at NCVER, containing recent Australian vocational education and training (VET) terms. This thesaurus is not currently being used in VOCEDplus."
