Meet market needs and get global recognition of your programmes or trainings


ESSA provides you with the practical tools to be the driving force that empowers current and future software professionals to stay ahead of the challenges of the sector.

Skill, upskill or reskill individuals

The modular Vocational Education and Training (VET) curricula and training programmes are co-created by industry and academia stakeholders. They are a practice-proofed approach to address the identified software professional skills and roles gaps; use them in your skilling, upskilling and reskilling efforts.

Supporting your change

We know how challenging it can be to integrate the latest market developments in training programmes. That is why the ESSA project will produce state-of-the-art curricula, training programmes, and a globally recognised certification framework. We will also provide teachers and trainers with materials and assistance to support the rollout.

Stronger together

Developing and implementing practice-oriented programmes cannot be achieved when working in silos. ESSA will enable you to easily get in touch with a community of education and training professionals, software practitioners, policymakers, and like-minded people — so you can deliver the best education and training.
