Subject The Directory of Occupations is made up and updated by constantly tracing changes in the labor market in terms of quality and quantity. Monitoring professions and qualifications of a certain discipline turns to be the most promising aspect to study, being capable of becoming the basic mechanism for updating the Directory.
Objectives The research represents a comprehensive analysis focused on results of monitoring of professions and qualifications in a certain discipline, theoretical and practical approaches to such monitoring. We also determine whether it is possible to use the results to form and update the governmental data source ‘Directory of Occupations’.
Methods We review basic mechanisms for updating the Directory of Occupations by monitoring professions and qualifications in a certain area.
Results We evaluate future developments and restrictions in the monitoring of professions and qualifications as a basic tool to form and update the Directory of Occupations. We outline the main approaches to studying professions and qualifications in the labor market, controlling and recording changes in the content of professional types, and identifying new types of employment and labor.
Conclusions and Relevance Monitoring of professions and qualifications can be used as a key tool to form and update the Directory of Occupations. Timely and regular updates of the Directory of Occupations will allow to refine the staff forecasting strategies, ensure the continuous and balanced process of staff training in various sectors and disciplines, determine whether it is necessary to set up and update professional standards, federal educational standards and programs.
