TRAIN4SUSTAIN wants to facilitate the recognition of construction qualifications across Europe.
Energy professionals: a profession without borders.
The construction sector is one of the main driver’s of the European economy. As sustainable buildings are on the rise, also sustainable energy professionals are more and more requested across Europe.
Availability and demand for skilled energy experts do not go hand in hand. In Europe we seem to have different perceptions of the skills needed to perform such a profession. Without taking into account the different legislations and language barriers.
So what can we do?
Our solution is to make comparable unify the current qualifications in sustainable energy across Europe. Doing so will help converge contents, curricula and trainings to be "state of the art". This implies that energy professionals' qualifications will be valid across borders, making it easier for them to find a job abroad.
To make this possible we are developing a European Skills Registry, a Skills Passport, an e-Inventory and a Match-Making hub.
