Marketing Text In order to improve the professional education of those active in the building industry and to expand the potential of SMEs, the qualification “European Projects in the Construction Sector” was developed as a part of ConstructEU. The course is intended for managerial and executive staff who want to undertake further training on transnational European project work. The qualification was successfully certified in Hungary and Germany.
The competence assessment scheme helps the training providers to detect the participants’ prior knowledge for the qualification programme "European Projects in the Construction Sector".
As follow-up, the assessment scheme assists the training providers in the evaluation and control of the qualification programme regarding the imparted learning contents and the achievement of learning objectives. In turn, the participants reflect on their knowledge thanks to the assessment scheme.
Target group Managerial and executive staffs active in the construction industry in the broadest sense who want to undertake further training in transnational European project work. These are for example people active in the construction industry, architects or urbanists. What is more, the qualification is also intended for people looking for a career change who expect new challenges or a new field activity. Specific entry requirements such as a university degree or a good English level are requested.
A competence assessment sheet was developed in addition to the curriculum of the qualification programme "European Projects in the Construction Sector” which inquires the participants’ about their professional background, interests and previous knowledge regarding every single thematic block.
In the aftermath of the training, the personal assessment of the individual knowledge growth of the participants per thematic block was determined.
Area of application The qualification will be implemented at the national level within the frame of the training offers for those active in the building industry. The education partners will include the qualification in their training offer. This process will be sustained through the successful certification of the training course in Germany and Hungary as well as the initiation of a Memorandum of Understanding which should facilitate the implementation in Spain.
