The Directorate General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (European Commission) has published in the European Year of Cultural Heritage a brochure presenting some Erasmus+ inspirational examples of what can be achieved when education, training and youth work meet cultural heritage. The EU programme that has been instrumental in uniting Europe also has a vital role to play in sharing and preserving our diverse European cultural heritage. ‘Construction Inheritance’ is one of the good practice included in this brochure as example of heritage-related skills for enhancing education and training for traditional and new professions – see page 38 of the brochure.
This project, funded under the Eramus+ programme, call 2015, has been developed by partners from Reforme network: Fundación Laboral de la Construcción (Spain), Bildungszentren des Baugewerbes eV -BZB- (Germany), Ente per la Formazione e l’addestramento professionale nell’edilizia -Formedil Puglia- (Italy), Centre IFAPME Liège-Huy-Waremme (Belgium), Comité de Concertation et de Coordination de l’Apprentissage du Bâtiment et des Travaux Publics -CCCA-BTP- (France) y Centro de Formação Profissional da Indústria da Construção Civil e Obras Públicas do Sul -Cenfic- (Portugal).
Institutions participating in the Reforme network cooperate in the development of innovation activities in Vocational Education and Training for the construction sector. These include the strategic improvement of the professional skills of its labour force, the development of organizational capacity and the creation of transnational strategic partnerships to produce innovative results and exchange best practices.
