BUStoB, a Horizon 2020 project, is directed towards establishing and upgrading large-scale qualification and training schemes in the Netherlands for craftsmen and other on-site workers, in continuation of the BUILD Up Skills Initiative.
The main objective of the project is to develop and pilot missing training materials on EQF-levels 2 – 4 based on the future-ready qualification schemes developed in BUILD UP Skills Pillar II. Secondary objective is to construct short skill measurement tests which enables the prevention of mistakes made by unconsciously incompetent workers, the detection of skills gaps and supply of industry relevant upskilling advice to craftsmen and building workers.
Tertiary objective is to organise regional pilots in which we focus on implementation and evaluation of the developed materials and regional capacity building. We will support regional training partnerships with train-the-trainer sessions, regional labour market intelligence and implementing the developed trainings and assessments in practice in regional building and/or renovation projects.
