The main objective of BUS_N@W was to reach cooperation between the most important actors and stakeholders in order to complete the schemes for post-initial training, based on the BUILD UP Skills Pillar I project, and to unlock the available courses and trainings for the workforce in the Netherlands.Key steps required to achieve the outcomes are:
- The development and implementation of official accreditation and endorsement of existing post-initial training schemes;
- Prepare for funding of post-initial training courses (subsidies like ESF, but also commercial funding);
- Development and implementation of a qualification structure for post-initial training. This includes a feedback loop to the qualification structure for initial training, in order to make the qualification-system sustainable in its entirety;
- Development of the missing qualifications;
- Development and implementation of multi- or interdisciplinary schemes;
- Adding the developed schemes and the inventory of courses made in Pillar I to existing course catalogues. And last but not least;
- Training of ‘trainers’, who will become ambassadors both on a branch-level and in companies or training providers.

- A flexible monitoring system
- Unlocked €40.000.000 of additional funding
- Endorsement, endorsement, endorsementEndorsement is the keyfactor for upscaling upskilling actionsIn BUS_N@W we have not foreseen enough time for endorsement activities.Luckily the involved branch-organisations are gearing up, this creates room for endorsement activities.
- Regional approachMost craftsmen in the Netherlands will not travel a long distance to training. Therefore, for massive upskilling the regional infrastructure must be upskilled first. This takes a lot of effort and endorsement.
- Create synergies between National initiatives and BUILD UP SkillsBy creating synergies between BUILD UP Skills and national initiatives, a broad recognition of the value of craftsmanship is created. This recognition is needed to enhance the demand for upskilled craftsmen.
