Primary findings of status quo
• 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
•
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.

Work force related findings of status quo
• 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).
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
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

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
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
Thank you for attention
