The project works towards the elaboration & endorsement of a national qualification roadmap to enhance the achievement of the 2020 energy targets through up-to-date education & training schemes for the building workforce. It will be supported by active stakeholder engagement on the measures proposed in the roadmap, organised along two thematic pillars: 1/ Building industry utilizing technologies related to energy efficiency (EE) & renewable energy sources (RES) employing the building workforce (demand) 2/ Education schemes for the building industry workforce including continuing vocational training (offer). To reach the largest range of target groups, the scope of the analysis and roadmap covers the following segments of education & training: 1/Continuing vocational training for workers including on-the-job trainings 2/Initial education as part of the formal school system. The project will be implemented along 4 phases: (1) kick-off: creating the cooperation framework (2) initial phase: analysis & scope of roadmap development, status quo report, mobilisation of stakeholders (3) interim phase: roadmap development & stakeholder engagement (4) final phase for policy endorsement.
Stimulate demand for sustainable energy skills with circularity as a driver and multifunctional green use of roofs, façades and interior elements as focus.
By revitalising the national platform, the CS4L project will aim to develop an updated progress report and a National Roadmap.
Status Quo Analysis
The ConstructSkills4LIFE project aims to assess the changes in the construction industry over the last ten years and to formulate new needs (Status Quo Analysis). Based on these analyses, the project will reinterpret the challenges in vocational training, adult education and university education in the construction industry.
The project aims at updating the previous National Roadmap, which aims at formulating actions and policy recommendations up to 2030, with the involvement of the most relevant stakeholders in the sector.
The aim of the project is to create a voluntary qualification system (quality labelling) based on the participatory strategy and actions of the Sustainable Construction Skill Alliance. It entails:
• On the one hand, reinforcing the up-to-date knowledge and appropriate skill base of construction workforce (especially HVAC skilled workers) in building energetics, energy efficient measures and use of renewable energy in order to become agents for energy efficient improvements of the Hungarian building stock.
• On the other hand, raising the awareness of property and home owners in energy efficiency measures and emphasising the importance of proper examination, assessment and installation of such measures in order to raise the demand for such qualified, skilled workers.
