Associazione Nazionale de Costruttori Edili -ANCE– organised the second meeting of the Co.Tutor Project, held in Rome last 9th and 10th of March.
Maintaining the same dynamic and productive line of the kick-off meeting, this one focused on concretion of the aims of the four Focus Groups to be organised and in defining their orientation, according to the expected results.
On the other hand, partners worked on the creation of an impact barometer of the current situation of the European SMEs, paying special attention to Spanish and Italian ones. Also, barriers faced by SMEs when dealing with practical training of apprentices were dealt with.
Among the obstacles, the following were identified: lack of training culture, lack of knowledge and information, scarce of resources or lack of time.
Furthermore, a dissemination event with stakeholders was held, where the lines of action of the Co.Tutor project were presented, together with information about other European projects related with the training in competences for energy efficiency and renewable energy systems applied to construction, such as Build Up Skills Spain “Construye 2020”, among others.
