This standard can be used to store or exchange data that identifies Subject Classifications. A Subject Classification is a topic within a subject classification scheme, such as the Sector Subject Areas classification scheme or the JACS v2.0 classification scheme.  A subject classification scheme typically identifies subjects that may be associated with other entities such as qualifications or learning opportunities, for example, to help the learner to identify a specific qualification or learning opportunity that will help to prepare for further learning, employment, career progression, achieve personal growth, engagement in learning etc.
