Download PDFDownload PDF
The Project commenced implementation of the Roadmap established and endorsed under Pillar I Build Up Skills project in Slovakia. The project covers over 30 blue-collar professions in the construction and energy sector relevant to energey efficiency and use of renewable energy sources in buildings. These professions are divided into 9 groups for which training programmes are being developed. The project identified skills and knowledge relevant in these groups of professions to energy efficiency and use of renewables in buildings and developed qualification standards that define the skills and knowledge on which the training programmes will be focused. On basis of these qualification standards, the project developed curricula of these training programmes and currently the efforts are focused on finalising the content.The project is also aimed at facilitating investment into skills and in this respect it aims at launching a green construction growth in the construction sector (currently in development) and setting up a network of companies underpinning the qualification and further training scheme.In 2016, the project will finalise the content of the training programmes, training of trainers and will launch the national qualification and further training scheme for craftsmen and on-site workers on energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources in buildings.


  • Set-up framework for the national qualification and training scheme for on-site workers in the field of buildings with national network of supporting employers in the field of buildings
  • Develop 9 training programmes for on-site workers and 1 training programme for on-site trainers and assessors with defined matrix of learning outcomes and testing for validation of the learning outcomes and certification
  • Network of trained trainers for delivering training programmes for on-site workers in the field of buildings and testing the learning outcomes,
  • Network of on-site trainers and internal assessors of issues to be addressed in on-site inception training,
