Nowadays in global discussions resource efficiency and the low-carbon society have emerged as central themes.
In 2013 EU has identified the need to turn the Union into a resource-efficient, green and competitive low-carbon economy.
By 2050 in EU’s economy resources will be sustainably managed, from raw materials to energy, water, air, land & soil. EU should cut its emission to 80% below 90’s levels.
In this frame, the forecast is that over a million of new jobs will be created and new technical and soft skills especially in green sector will be redefined.
Although high-level education in this field is largely available, the labour market lacks medium-level and operational manpower. These jobs do not require academic training but solid technical skills.
In this context, NE(W)AVE – reNEWable e-VEt learning project comes to life.
General aims of the project
To increase the knowledge of the VET sector in partners countries, dedicated to renewable energy
To enhance the technical skills of learners
To open a new potential market for young people in possession of more traditional skills such as electricians, plumbers and installers
To strengthen the skills of VET teachers and trainers
To investigate which professionals’ profiles, companies of the sector want
To increase the ability of young people to compete in a competitive market
To promote innovative teaching methods
To promote mobility in the field of education, training and knowledge in Europe.
A gap analysis in each country
An analysis to outline the real needs of the sector both in terms of thematic content and real needs of companies.
An online course for specialists
A comprehensive e-learning model for the future professionals in the renewable energies who want to upgrade/convert their competences and to re-qualify themselves in this field.
An e-toolkit for teachers and trainers
A free-standing open training resource for teachers and trainers dedicated to online training and the management of European mobility.
The best practices gathered during the project will be made available to all institutions, companies and public administrations to strengthen sectoral policies in the renewable energy field in Europe.
