Grow your business and innovation capacity


Whether you are a big or small organisation with a demand for skilled software professionals, ESSA helps you to up- and reskill your staff or find new recruits with the right skillset.

Look at new perspectives

The European Software Skills Strategy is a roadmap to educate people for software jobs. It is based on in-depth market-oriented research and thanks to it, we develop the next generation educational profiles. This will guide you — and us — to design and deliver the right learning programmes.
