The main aim is to develop an innovative course on waste management, to support site managers to address modern skills needs with regards to environmental sustainability awareness, knowledge, supervision and site organisation competences.

Outcomes

Impacts/Outcomes 1:
Definition of appropriate learning outcomes and development of a training course to address C&D waste management skills needs, to enhance relevant VET provision for site managers.
Impacts/Outcomes 2:
Introduction of modern training methods in the form of Open Educational Resources and Vocational Open Online Course (VOOC).
Impacts/Outcomes 3:
Support of the integration of C&D waste management skills into EU certification & standardisation schemes.

Policy/Initiative

Skills Shortages:
There is a need to provide the construction sector, and especially renovation and demolition companies, with up-skilled site managers capable to:
- supervise on-site works regarding waste identification, separation and collection at source,
- follow the instructions of the pre-demolition audits,
- implement adequate dismantling and demolition practices,
- execute waste management plans for site-works,
- eliminate hazardous waste,
- deal with technical and organization challenges,
- ensure the safety of workers,
- consult with customers, architects, workers and other involved agents.

Recommendations

Training:
The project delivers a transnational course to support the EU Construction & Demolition Waste Management Protocol (2016), wich aims to promote sustainable solutions on an EU level. It can be applicable across the EU construction sector avoiding the duplication of effort. It also provides an opportunity for all involved agents in the construction industry (sector representatives, VET providers, field experts) to upskill current staff, as well as to offer modernised IVET to students looking for employment as site managers, renovators and constructors.
