OSKA Sectors

OSKA analyses the needs for labour and skills in all areas of life in Estonia using common methodologies.

The entire economy is divided into 24 OSKA sectors. Each year, the need for labour and skills is analysed and recommendations for training requirements are prepared in five or six sectors. Thus all key professions in all fields of life in the Estonian society are analysed over five years.

The order of the sectors to be analysed is approved by the OSKA Coordination Council once a year. The relevant sectoral expert panels monitor implementation of the recommendations made on the basis of the survey.

An OSKA general report on changes in labour requirements, labour market developments and the trends influencing them over the next 10 years is prepared annually.
