The main advantage and benefit of implementing the current project is that it brings together the Construction industry and the Vocational Education and Training (VET) providers, in an attempt to establish a strategic approach for the coming years, in order to tackle the challenge of addressing the skills shortages of the sector’s workers and the purpose of matching the workers’ skills with the needs and demands of the labour market. This new Strategy will be clearly connected to the general Strategy for the growth of the European Construction industry and complementary to other initiatives and measures implemented for the sector.
