New Skills

Online Courses

A series of FREE, easily accessible online courses which you can complete from the comfort of your own home, in your own time. These self-directed courses are available on our e-learning platform in the categories of Energy Efficiency, Circular Economy and Digitalisation for all interested persons who are involved in the construction industry.

Our e-learning platform not only aims to support potential and new entrants to the industry but also to provide existing workforce with an opportunity to improve their knowledge and career progression.

Energy Efficiency

One of the main drivers of skills development in the sector. The European Commission agreed to decarbonise the European building stock by 2050, which will force 3-4 million workers to be trained in this area. In this sense, we are working to qualify and increase the number of craftsmen and on-site workers in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energies in buildings.

Digitalisation

Digitalisation skills are one of the major challenges that the construction industry has to overcome in order to improve the human capital in the sector. The transition to BIM projects as well as the use of new technologies such as drones, robots, AR, VR, 3D printing and more will bring new working scenarios that will demand a sound level of digitalisation of construction workers skills.

Circular Economy

The construction industry has a very important role in the transition to a Circular Economy. We aim to train the construction workforce to be skilled in tasks carried out in recycling plants of construction and demolition waste, in the design of buildings, in the features and behaviour of recycled and bio-based materials or in the demolition practices.
