INAPP, the National Institute for Public Policy Analysis (formerly ISFOL) in Italy, recently presented the Atlas for Jobs and Qualifications, a database for occupations. Atlas is built on the European legislation on qualifications and learning outcomes, including the ECVET recommendation, and aims to provide a universal description of occupations. The database is built on three pillars:
- the atlas of work, which provides descriptions of occupation in terms of activities and products/services available to carry out these activities;
- the directory of qualifications, which collects data on qualifications issued at different levels; and
- the atlas of professions, listing professions regulated by national agreements and apprenticeship professions.
