The Green Skills main outputs are described below under each of the seven Work Packages (WPs) of the project:
WP1 - Project management:
Led by: PATER
The coordinator of the project, PATER, is responsible for the overall management of the project and the coordination of all partners. PATER will monitor and control the project activities, report on the technical and financial justification, and ensure that the expected results are obtained based on a plan for project evaluation and milestones. The four planned consortium meetings during the project’s lifespan fall under this WP.
WP 2 - Plan for the quality assesment: Monitoring tools and indicators:
Led by: PATER
The monitoring and evaluation activities will be carried out within this WP in-itinere and ex-post phases. In-itinere evaluation assesses the tools chosen in relation to the efficient implementation of the project, the quality of the project, also proposing changes to the implementation methods in case of non-efficacy. Ex-post evaluation will be carried out after the conclusion of the project, and, using the data collected and the experience gained from the project implementation, it will check the reaching of the project specific objectives.
WP 3 - Analysis and detection of opportunities: Research, evaluation and initial diagnosis
Led by: FEVEC
National Surveys about the Green Jobs in construction sector
A National Survey will be conducted in each partner country, including research, evaluation and initial diagnosis about construction sector. The study will look upon the current situation of builders and contractors after housing bubble, the path to new activities for creating jobs, the specialisation on materials, methodologies, architecture, etc., and will analyse the situations of employees and unemployed people who are experienced in the field of construction, but lack new competences to develop their job prospects.
Synthesis Report – the Green Jobs in construction sector
Following the National Surveys, a Synthesis Report will be drafted on the Green Jobs in the construction sector, which will include as well the identified best practices that have been developed in other European countries that have suffered a crisis in the construction sector in the past.
Catalogue of job opportunities in the construction sector
This catalogue will include a series of files on new significant employment and business opportunities in the construction sector, based on new sustainable construction business models.
WP 4 - Adapting sector supply/demand:
Led by: PZPB
Study and report on the labour force in the construction sector
A study will be conducted based on new competitive market demands and criteria of equal opportunities for men and women.
List of skills
The list of skills will be used to analyse and evaluate the professional and personal skills, as well the aptitudes and motivation of each person.
Catalogue of job offers
This catalogue will contain a list of new marker offers with detailed information so that the job seekers or people who want to improve their job can see exactly what the job opportunity offers. This catalogue will be available to public employment services, sector associations and associated job placement entities.
Market supply and demand will be linked by designing a technological platform.
Project e-learning component will be built around modern open source Learning Management System (LMS) utilizing LAMP environment, with relational database in the background, responsible for managing data. Elements of Web 2.0 will be integrated, allowing wider audience feedback and networking. Peer to peer interaction will be possible via LMS componets like integrated forum and chat.
WP 5 - Establishment of competences and skills profiles:
Led by: VSRC
Establishment of competences and skills profiles
Creation of skills profile suitable for the new employment opportunities detected and selected. The skills profile will include a Hard Profile (Aptitudes) and a Soft Profile (Attitudes).
WP 6 - Training programme: theory and practice:
Led by: IVE
A training profile will be prepared for each speciality detected, the result of which will be an educational guide for each speciality.
A training programme will be addressed to employed and unemployed people that respond to the global challenges of environmental protection, economic development and social inclusion.
An essential criterion of the training programme will be the possibility of recogninising and accrediting the training received, based on both the content set forth in professional certificates and the modules included. The training courses will be supplemented with 40 hours of work placements in sector companies whose activity is mainly based on sustainable, inclusive and smart growth.
The training profile will include cross-cutting and specific training.
An educational guide for each speciality detected. The educational guide will include: introduction, general objective, specific objectives, scope of action, target public, prior knowledge, content, methodology, duration. The educational guides will be available to entities dedicated to training, such as AEDLS (Employment and Local Development Agents), and public and private employment and training services.
WP 7 - Diffusion and dissemination of the project outcomes:
Led by: EOC
This work package aims to create a well-targeted communication and dissemination strategy that will identify key users and stakeholders, create social awareness and facilitate collaboration between partners and different stakeholders at local/regional, national and European level. It involves the development of the project’s visual identity, building and managing the project’s website, as well as overseeing the traditional media and social media presentation, generating press releases, newsletters, leaflets, publications in journals, and events.
Green Skills will be disseminated by transversal development in all its steps.
