European Building Essentials
The instruction materials offer annotations and explanations to the modular structured qualification programme. A relatively complex concept of skills form the basis of these materials.
The concept conveyed within BASICON is that the qualification of auxiliary construction workers should concentrate on vocational skills and the shaping of the world of work with social and ecological responsibility. The term skills envelope technical knowledge but also personal and social skills. The tecnical skills consist of technical theory and technical practice.
Skills are gained in a dynamic process of daily preoccupation withtechnical and professional matters, and recognise the levels of wanting, knowing and being able to do.
In BASICON’s approach to a modular qualification, the personal, social and technical skills join together to form a comprehensive overall concept that attempts to master the complex reality of learning itself and of those who want to learn.

Target group Trainers, teachers, persons responsible for vocational training
The teaching of the skills have the following approaches:
·Didactic benchmarks should be used, since they are important for further vocational development.
·As a starting point for qualification the tasks should be carried out individually or simply theoretically understood.
·The tasks should allow for a reasonably high amount of independence and self-evaluation (quality control).
·The tasks should be conducive to a holistic understannding of the vocational reality, for instance by including technical, ecological, economical, legal and social aspects.
Differing levels of skill acquisition and performance appraisal:
·Reorganisation as a reproduction of know-how in a different context
·Transferral of knowledges to similar situations
