An Occupational Map is essentially a report describing the main features and characteristics of an industry or sector. It gives a picture of the sector in terms of its coverage and boundaries, providing information on the numbers employed, industry trends, job titles and job roles. In this way it contributes to the context and background for the development of national occupational standards for a sector. As such it is an important first stage in the process of developing a national framework as it analyses the professional areas covered. This is a very useful guide and will be of interest to anyone wishing to create a European Occupational map for their own sector. To access the guide please click here.

At present, the tool assists fish farmers to identify possible diseases. Future versions will include an ability to contact an identified expert who can also be sent fish samples. The expert will then be able to use the tool during the identification process to further narrow the list of possible diseases and email the fish farmer the result. The alpha version of this remarkable new tool will be demonstrated and tested for its diagnostic identification capacity at an upcoming workshop which will be organised in October by the Spanish training organisation, CETMAR. Further news and registration details of this workshop will be given in this Newsletter. All of the projects deliverables will be made available through the project website (www.pescalex.org) which is currently being revamped and will shortly be online.
The meeting highlighted the huge potential that PESCALEX 2 has in going forward and the secretariat would like to thank our Hungarian partners for their hospitality and for making the progress meeting such a success.
