CONDAP Project: Info day & Pilot-testing of the Online Course for construction mentors

On 10 November, EBC held the first online Info Day of the Erasmus + project CONDAP, which aims to enhance the skills of mentors in construction apprenticeships.

The event, celebrated in the framework of the European Vocational Skills Week 2020, gathered more than 35 construction and educational stakeholders connecting online from 13 different European countries and the United States of America.

The event, moderated by EBC Secretary General Eugenio Quintieri, kicked off with an introduction by Mr Roman Horváth, Policy Officer at DG Grow, who illustrated the current stance and future actions of the European Commission towards a further improvement of the human capital base in the construction sector.

The CONDAP partners, namely the Prof. Elisa Peñalvo López (UPV, Spain) and the Project Managers Mr Danielius Burokas (VSRC, Lithuania) and Ms Larisa Puk (Instructus, UK) presented then the CONDAP Vocational Open Online Course (VOOC) and its three learning units: 1. Energy Efficiency & Sustainable Construction; 2. Digital Construction & BIM; 3. Communication, Organizational & Management Skills.

The CONDAP VOOC (which includes a series of lecture notes, case studies, FAQs, videos and practical exercises) is available in English, French, Spanish, Lithuanian and Greek.

The event was closed by a Panel Debate on “Quality VET – Empowering construction trainers and small entrepreneurs for a sustainable built environment” with very insightful contributions by three high-level VET and construction experts: Mr Geert Ramaekers (Director, Constructiv / Belgium), Mr José Antonio Viejo (Chief VET & Employment Officer, FLC / Spain) and Mr Olivier Weber (Chief VET Officer, CAPEB / France).
