At what learning outcomes the scheme aims?

Learning outcomes were identified by working groups affiliating experts from vocational education and training, suppliers of materials and technologies for the sector of buildings and construction companies.

On 19 November 2014, NUCZV hosted the first join workshop of the working groups. This workshop:

  1. Validated groups of crafts and professions for which specific education and training programmes will be built.
  2. Defined technology and material framework for the content of the education and training programmes.
  3. Established the initial draft of the list of learning outcomes for developing skills per crafts and professions and per education and training programmes.
  4. Established the initial draft of the list of learning outcomes for developing knowledge per crafts and professions and per education and training programmes.

The established materials were used as basis for developing the units of learning outcomes for the education and training programmes to be developed by StavEdu.

On 12 February 2015, a validation workshop was held to prepare proposals for qualification standards to be assessed by internal quality review team (members: Zuzana Štrbíková (NÚCŽV), Marta Minarovičová (ÚVS), Katarina Babulíková (NÚCŽV)). This team recommended further additions to the qualification standards, specificaly the team added additional skills and knowledge relevant to the education programs. Redrafted qualification standards were approved by the team on 5 March 2015.

Did participants in training received a certificate?

After completing education and training programme, the trainees could apply for test. Those trainees, who successfully completed test received certificate of acquiring partial qualification in energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources in buildings. This certificate is recognized by employers in Slovakia. ZSPS is negotiating with the partners in the other countries involved in the Build Up Skills initiative to reach mutual recognition of learning outcomes and the awarded certificates.
