To cover the training needs derived from the launch of the different strategies for the energy performance of buildings, Spain has a specific legislation and several instruments, such as the Training System for Employment, which regulates vocational training for the employed and unemployed, the National System of Professional Qualifications, which is developing the National Catalogue of Qualifications. This BUILD UP Skills project will help to establish a roadmap that will set out clear plan of action to ensure these systems respond to the training needs that arising in the field of energy performance of buildings. In this way it will be possible to optimally satisfy the "2020 objectives", converging with all the other European countries towards this common goal.
