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. This will give hands-on insight into who needs to develop which competences, to be able to create a circular built environment.
The results will be used firstly for 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. In the near future, 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.
