Customer demand for Clay plasters and clay finishes in interior design is growing in the European market. The construction industry is already offering numerous earth and clay products, but training courses in their application and use are not currently available. The project Modern Earth Building for Promoting Regional Development seeks to close this gap. 14 partners from six European countries are co-operating to develop a vocational training Unit Clay Plaster and Design.
A common European vocational qualification is still only vision. Therefore, to begin with, each partner country will create its own national vocational training diploma Clay Plaster and Design.
The project aims to promote regional development by improving the quality of the vocational qualification and sharing the experience throughout Europe.
A training unit on this new specialisation aims to offer new job opportunities for craftsmen and women, be they bricklayers, plasterers, painters, or decorators.
The training will also provide recognition for self-taught specialists, who have gained experience in earth building, without having gained an officially recognised certificate.
Co-operating on a European level will require consideration of different vocational training systems, and will also be an opportunity to recognise regional specialisation and preferences in interior design using earth.
Recognition, transparency, certification
