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.
Description The trainers’ handbook "How to creatively conduct a seminar for EU-Projects” deals with the topics of the training programme "European Projects in the Construction Sector”. It introduces different exercises with a focus on practical knowledge in the field of European project work. The trainers’ handbook was developed by experienced trainers from the project partners in Germany, Spain and Hungary and is an outstanding proof of the transnational exchange of experience. The idea of a complementary trainers’ handbook as a practical handout for trainers as support for training seminars on European cooperation work emerged at the transnational pilot training in November 2014 in Berlin. As no widespread methods have been developed in Germany, Spain and Hungary until now, the trainers’ handbook "How to creatively conduct a seminar for EU-Projects” is deliberately not limited to people from the construction sector but will also be available for trainers with an expertise in other topics, with a focus on European project work. Thus, the training handbook will be of increasing impact and value. Nevertheless, the involvement of the target group (construction sector) is ensured through numerous exercise formats in the training programme concept "European projects in the Construction Sector”.
- Institutions of the VET sector with focus on the construction sector
- Umbrella organizations and multipliers of the construction sector
- VET trainers of the construction sector
- VET trainers overall
Result Besides the handbook – Course concept for the training "European Projects in the Construction Sector”, a second handbook – Manual for trainers “How to creatively conduct a seminar on EU-Projects” was developed. The trainer handbook picks up the seven thematic blocks of the training’s course concept and describes different methods of exercises for the practical knowledge transfer. The training handbook was also developed jointly with the consortium and serves as complementary handout for trainers who want to deliver their course on “European Projects in the Construction Sector” in a more diversified and interactive form. Since no methodological literature especially dedicated to the topic of “Seminar on EU projects” is existing in the participating countries, the content of the training handbook deliberately goes beyond the construction sector. It is available in an interactive version (including hyperlinks) as well as in a printer-friendly version.
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.
