As a part of the Build Up Skills Initiative the project works for increasing the number of qualified workers in the building workforce in Finland to reach the ambitious goals of energy performance in the building sector by 2020. Both new buildings and renovations demand improved skills.
In this page:
- The project analyses the status quo in Finland regarding the need for qualified workers in the building sector by 2020. This is done by analysing the present situation in the education of building workforce, the demands from energy and climate policies to buildings and thus to skills needed, and then identifying the gaps between the desired situation and the present.
- The project then initiates Finnish national qualification platforms that bring together stakeholders to discuss the findings of the analysis of the status quo, and to identify issues for the roadmap.
- Next the project drafts the Finnish qualification roadmap. The stakeholders are again invited to assess this draft and to prioritise the necessary steps.
- In 2009, 141800 persons worked in the building sector. It is estimated that 45% of the workforce will be retiring by 2020. At annual level, 5000 new persons would be needed for the sector.
- All employees in the building sector must be at some level brought within the sphere of further training. Energy skills must be included in basic and further education as a cross-cutting objective in all content.
