ConstructEU – Building up skills for successful European Projects in the Construction Sector
The core objective of ConstructEU was to establish an internationally accepted training course for EU project managers in the construction sector, based on the European Qualifications Framework (EQF) and to test it in practice. The long-term goal was to embed the modular training in the vocational training systems in Spain, Hungary and Germany. The certified training course “Qualification to EU-Fundraiser”, successfully managed by emcra GmbH in Berlin and other cities in Germany since 2005, served as a basis for the concept transfer. Within the extra-occupational-training, the participants get an insight into the core issues and chances of the European projects and European project management and get to know specific European funding opportunities for mobility projects. The existing modular training concept was adjusted step by step to the specific needs of the target group and the partner states, together with the European partners from Spain and Hungary. Thus the training course “European Projects in the Construction Sector” was created. In spring 2015, practical test phases took place in Berlin (DE), Santander (ES), Kiskunhalas (HUN) and Szeged (HUN) with the target groups from the three partner states. The local test phases served as direct control of the syllabus, of the developed teaching and learning materials and the added-value of the participants of the further training “European Projects in the Construction Sector”. To ensure the sustainability and implementation of the training course in the national VET systems, the course was successfully certified in Spain, Hungary and Germany during the project duration. Furthermore, a common Memorandum of Understanding about the training course was developed and signed by all the partners. Direct cooperation with the relevant stakeholders from vocational training institutions and professional institutions ensured the practical orientation of the project and the dissemination of the project results. In this way, future EU project managers in the construction sector can be qualified. In the long run, this project will support the mobility in the construction sector and contribute to a cross-border professional exchange throughout Europe.
