BUILD UP Skills is an EU Initiative to improve the qualification and skills of Europe's building workers which are essential to build, equip and renovate buildings of high energy performance. The Initiative focuses on continuing education of craftsmen and other on-site building workers.
From strategy to action: Based on agreed national roadmaps the BUILD UP Skills Initiative will support the introduction or upgrade of concrete qualification schemes on regional, national and multi-national level.
Get engaged! BUILD UP Skills brings together all relevant stakeholders in national platforms to exchange on training and qualification of the building workforce on energy-efficiency and renewable energy. Professional chambers, trade unions, industries, experts on training...
Contribute to national priority setting: a key achievement of BUILD UP Skills will be endorsed national roadmaps pinpointing to the most important changes and concrete measures needed in the continuous education system of the building sector.
Barriers to the training of building workers from various crafts will be identified. The need for improved skills to ensure significant energy savings in buildings will be quantified and priority measures for the up-skill of on-site construction workers will be established.
Share and win: New skills and qualifications for the building sector are a common challenge across Europe. 30 European countries have joined forces and work together, to share their ideas and findings and to learn from each other.
