3 BuildEst Roadmap and Action Plan for Training Workforce Topics covered: Strategies and action plans towards EU 2020 targets Buildings’ energy consumption and development of renewable energy The labour market in the construction sector Awarding occupational qualifications in the field of construction Construction education and training at the vocational education level Divergence between the current professional skills of the workforce and the levels necessary for achieving the 2020 objectives



6 IMPLEMENTATION MEASURES Continuing support programmes for energy conservation activity in apartment buildings – CO2 allowances and EU structural funds Implementation of the public sector building renovation programme - up to 2013 is 146.5 million euros and it will allow close to 480 public buildings Energy conservation in public transport and electric cars project Increasing the competitiveness of industry – energy auditing Energy conservation in private housing (1/3 of households)

7 Fact sheet of the construction sector 2005200620072008200920102011 2012*II Q 2013 Construction activities (million euros) 15462074262722991502128316792079 Grew compared to year before +22+27+14-13-30-9+27+19 Workers in construction (thousand persons) 48,863,682,18158,347,95958,757* Gross domestic product, change in % +8,9+9,6+7-3,4-14,6+3,7+8+3,2 Number of construction companies 44345815782283177911744678888000 Unemployment rate (%) 16 years to retirement 8,36,24,95,714,417,612,910,67* Average salary in construction (euros) 5366398178917747978479231030 Average salary in all activities (euros) 515580720825784792839880976

8 The number of employed by construction companies could rise to 45,000-50,000 people or more: Forecast as to the number of employed in the construction sector and by construction companies in 2012-2020 on the basis of the total number (thousands of people) Primary findings of status quo

9 Taking into consideration that admissions in VET schools were down in 2010-2011, the number of graduates in 2013 may be as low as 800. Primary findings of status quo

10 The construction sector would need at least 900-1,200 new skilled workers per year Around 800 graduating per year, 36 percent not integrated into the sector, new hires to as low as 600, which is much lower than even the most conservative forecast for workforce needs in the sector The workforce study* data signaled an urgent shortage of workforce in the sector The construction workers who lack professional training account for close to 50 percent of workers at construction companies *Estonian Institute of Economic Research ”Workforce-related situation of Estonian construction companies and prospective need for workforce” (May 2012). Work force related findings of status quo

11 Eight-level national qualifications framework (EstQF)15 In the development of competences aimed at energy efficiency, the complementing of occupational standards in the construction field is of key importance MEASURE : Energy efficiency skills module of the competence standard developed for every profession and competence level (construction workers 1-4 levels and 5 level – master foreman) Occupational standards are the basis for updating the content of national curricula in vocational education as well as designing in-service trainings

12 Priority measures in roadmap TARGET 1: INCREASING THE QUALITY OF CONSTRUCTION IN ORDER TO ENSURE ENERGY EFFICIENCY MEASURE 1: Energy efficient construction activity has been planned and coordinated TARGET 2: INCREASING THE SHARE OF QUALIFIED WORKFORCE MEASURE 2.1: Ensuring conformity of employees’ occupational competence to the requirements of the labour market MEASURE 2.2: Ensuring and raising quality of specialized training in the construction sector MEASURE 2.3: Developing an in-service training (incl continuing education) system for acquiring energy efficient construction related competences MEASURE 2.4: Increasing the perceived value in society of energy efficient construction and of training in this field

13 BuildEst II activities 1 non-qualified workforce training scheme – focusing on describing the principles of integration of the non-qualified workers into existing vocational education and training, widely using also accreditation of prior learning and work. 5 qualified workforce training schemes EstQF III and IV level - Construction works – stone, concrete, steel - Carpenter - Construction finisher - Heating, plumbing, ventilation, installers of RES systems - Master-foreman training EstQF V level 1 trainers’ training scheme for qualified workforce trainers (joint and specialized modules) 90 trainers 1 on-site learning mentor (practical internship) training programme 1 training programme for occupational qualification and evaluation committee members corresponding modern training / study materials. pilot trainings– 12 people in each piloted course in the methodological part of trainers’ training = 12 people x 28 groups = 336 people (workers; ca. 0.8% out of 41 000) The training schemes will be built into the Estonian qualification requirements

14 Suggestions for Buildup Skills I projects Key Opinion Leaders quality managers of construction companies, qualification assessment committee members, vocational teachers Involvement of ministry level Identify numbers of people to be trained – not only by profession also by required level Address unskilled workers
