Within the BUS-GoCircular project, a general task-based qualification framework was developed for circular skills in construction, meaning a set of tasks and corresponding learning outcomes were mapped and connected to relevant professions throughout the construction value chain.
The qualification framework consists of two tables. The first contains tasks and subtasks. The subtasks are connected to professions on the one hand, and to so-called Units of Learning Outcomes (ULOs) on the other. The second table specifies the ULOs, broken up into competencies, skills, and knowledge components.
A next step is validation by market stakeholders. Then, the qualification framework will be used within the BUS-GoCircular project to develop train-the-trainer and mentoring programmes for circular construction skills in Europe. The learning outcomes from the framework will also be added to the BUILD UP Skills Advisor app, to further increase skills recognition for professionals and craftspeople.
