METVET DESCRIPTION

JOINT HIGHER VET COURSE IN THE METAL SECTOR

Description

The EU has set clear objectives in terms of energy sustainability, the 20-20-20 targets, leading to a whole new demand for environmental skills in the construction sector. However, training providers have not yet caught up with this new skills demand, creating an important skills gap in the current labor market. This is also highlighted in the CEDEFOP’s report “Green Skills and Environmental Awareness in Vocational Education and Training” which explains that one of the main gaps in learning provision is for “green” construction and installation technicians.

As the European aluminium construction products industry promotes life-cycle thinking and supports aluminium use which contributes to further environmental improvements, aluminium use the last decades has increased spectacularly especially in the constructional sector.

Cedefop’s 2016 skills forecast offers insights into future trends in skill demand and supply across the European Union (EU). All sectors are expected to employ more highly qualified people, reacting to a combination of demand and supply factors. Technology, by replacing routine tasks, is making jobs more demanding and requiring higher skills.

To achieve those targets, experts from Greece, Italy, Germany and Belgium, following their involvement in projects and discussions with national and European stakeholders are joining forces to create a support for policy reform (METVET), creating a European offer of adapted and innovative initial training and certification. The training will concern skills’ developments (fabrication and installation of aluminium frames), as much as international standards, regulations and certification awareness, based on common transnational curricula.

The project’s primary target groups are skilled workers and technical experts, related VET graduates and undergraduates students or unemployed related technicians. However, project’s beneficiaries will be also, Chambers & Social Partners, VET providers and of course related technical companies.
