European Centre E-Training in Green Jobs – PROGREEN

Vistula University is a partner of the European Centre E-Training in Green Jobs project – PROGREEN

One of the objectives of the European Union’s strategy for growth and employment Europe 2020 is development through innovation and the increase of green competences. The Community economy suffers from their deficits, which limits productivity and competitiveness, and thus the opportunities and chances offered by the development of the green economy.

Green Professions currently belong to the most attractive ones on the European labour market. By 2030, Europe will need over 400,000 employees in the green jobs sector. Eco changes affect the entire continent.

The main goal of the PROGREEN project is to increase access to training and vocational courses that will develop skills and raise awareness and competence in the field of green jobs. The project lasts 24 months and is implemented by six partners from three countries: Poland, Italy and Portugal. Its goal will be achieved by providing permanent access to vocational education and training in the field of green jobs.

The program includes creation of an educational platform: the European Centre E-Training in Green Jobs, available in four language versions: Polish, English, Italian and Portuguese. It will provide short educational courses: Eco-educator, Advisor on the implementation of green solutions, Designer of ecological sewage treatment plants, Healthy food manufacturer, Manufacturer – herb collector, Installer of green energy devices, Expert of renewable energy management, Solar collectors installer, Installer of insulation systems construction, Entrepreneur and Initiator.

The development of vocational education and training modules will be preceded by research into the employers’ needs in the area of ​​green jobs and development of expected competence profiles. This will increase the adaptation of training programs to the employers’ needs, and students who complete the online course and pass the exam will have a better chance of finding interesting employment or starting their own business.

The project will result in creating a tool offering an easy way to acquire new competences and skills in the area of ​​the green labour market.

The Platform will allow the participants to complete the course anywhere, anytime, pass the exam remotely and print the certificate.
