SEBCoVE

The construction sector, mostly composed of small and microfirms that provide local employment (more than 90% are SMEs21), employs 12 million workers in the EU. Buildings are increasingly run by complex systems that use computer processors, sophisticated controls, fibre optics, and other networking gear. In this sense, an electrician has become a high-tech worker. The term “Smart Electricity for Buildings” (SEBs) is used to describe electrical trades engaged in the installation and maintenance of low voltage electrical applications in buildings. Today, the increasing level of automation, Internet of Things and smart home technologies, advanced renewable energy systems, fibre optics, and other networking gear pose new challenges for the professionals working in the SEBs sector, to align their skills and competences to the requirements imposed by market demand. As pointed out by the [Skills panorama 2019], the drivers of change that strongly affect the future demand for electricians working in SEBs and their set of skills are Increased automation, Technological advancements and the transition to a low carbon economy As referred to in [SKILLS PANORAMA 2019], 70% of electro-engineering workers hold a medium-level qualification, the same proportion of which will be projected until 2030, making the need for upskilling and reskilling more acute. These trends and facts indicate a clear need for the vocational training and education system to meet the need for upskilling for higher qualifications and more specialized skills for electricians in the SEBs sector. The objectives of the “Smart Electricity for Buildings” project are to develop Centers of Vocational Excellence, supporting the Smart Specialization of their region, and establish international knowledge hubs for VET excellence systems, with the ambition to be world-class reference points for continuing up- and reskilling of professionals engaged in the sector.
