Title Development of Guide for Energy efficiency renovation of buildings – Euro EnEff
Project Number 2008-1-BG1-LEO05-00457
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
E-training platform towards energy efficiency of buildings
The training content, didactic and supporting materials are useful for the trainers, trainees and SMEs technicians in construction and in particular within energy efficiency retrofitting of buildings.
Summary The project evolves from the necessity for contemporary training tools for the VET schools and continuing vocational training in construction and especially in energy retrofitting of buildings. The approach comes from Fainlab tool which is based on the German experience in active learning and ICT.
The idea of this project, is the huge number of block of flats in Bulgaria stock, and the lack of training tool in the Construction sector area, especially for Trainers in professional secondary schools, VET centers, and site managers. Transfer of innovation is planned from Germany to the other partner countries, new EU members – Bulgaria and Romania. Project aim is through the effective partnership to elaborate a Guide for Energy efficiency renovation for building techniques, web based, innovative tool. Direct Beneficiaries: teachers, trainers, site-managers, workers from sector. Indirect are the clients of construction companies, receiving a renovated building product of high quality, energy savings up to 40 %. Partnership includes all key actors of Construction sector: employer’s association, training bodies, research bodies, companies.
Project aim is development and adapting of Guide for energy efficiency renovation of buildings, based on the key expertise of Germany in the renovation of prefabricated structures, especially in Berlin and other major cities. German partners have mutual expertise in renovation works or rehabilitation of existing, respectively old buildings. In addition to this is the expertise in the vocational training activities. Vocational training institute of the Construction industry in Northrine-Westphalia with more than 30-years experience in methodology and development of the innovative training tool, based on the previous e-learning projects. Current project proposal is follow-up, and valorisation of former carried our international projects – Training of trainers with partnership with FVB – Fund for vocational training of Construction industry, located in Belgium, in 2006 – on masonry, shuttering work, and steel framework, early 2007 – on renovation work, also training of trainers, as well as on site management, and Health & Safety issues. Further to the Basicon II Projects findings, European building essentials, and applying the developed innovative Certification center for competences, skills and knowledge of Construction workers-helpers. Current project is going to implement the methodology for development of orientation and training module, developed by the Construction Chamber of Bulgaria on Build Up pilot project, where is applicable.
Anticipated impact of the project is to be developed modern training tool, tailored to the training needs not only of the Trainers, but also to the Trainees, web/DVD based, interactive, and applying European ICT developments and techniques. The product will be based on modern pedagogical techniques, based on the key expertise of the technical background of Spanish partner, as well as long-term expertise of the 2 Bulgarian training centers – BGCPO and VET center at Glavbolgarstroy. Further to the development and pilot training will be organised Training sessions for receiving feedback from trainers, teachers and tutors of Construction industry.
The project duration is 24 months.
