2019 - Construction Blueprint project


Blueprint logo

Project description:
Blueprint for the Construction Industry gathers three European Union (EU) umbrella sectoral organizations, along with nine national sectoral representatives and twelve Vocational and Education Training providers (24 partners in all) from twelve EU countries to work together for developing a new sectoral strategic approach to cooperate on skills in the construction industry, and support a better matching between skill needs of companies and skills provided by training centers.

This Blueprint will be arranged through a Sectoral Skills Strategy. This Strategy will bring together lessons learned from other initiatives (i.e. Build Up Skills) using a holistic approach, identifying political, economic, social, technological, legal and environmental factors which may be affecting sectoral skills and training offers.

The following activities will be developed during the course of the project:
- To collect good practices at national and regional level to illustrate and promote other initiatives addressing skill gaps.
- To design and deliver a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) to raise awareness among construction workers about new skills drivers: digitalization, energy efficiency and circular economy.
- To create a tool to provide valuable information about particular skill needs at least at regional/national level.
- To build upon a revision methodology of construction professional profiles and qualifications.
- To carry out an outreach campaign for the Construction industry to promote its attractiveness among youngsters and women, identifying and promoting solutions to facilitate mobility of construction workers in Europe.
- To create a new virtual tool (SSA Portal) where all project outputs will be available for stakeholders, as well as a Sector Skills Alliance platform for collaborative work.
