Zemgale and Panevezys regions share similar challenges in construction and restoration industry: although there are a large number of unemployed young people, there is a lack of craftsmen – masters of restoration, while vocational education training (VET) programmes mismatch needs of labour market. At the same time, Latvia has long years of experience and traditions in restoration and craft education, while Lithuania does not have available certification of restoration masters, but there is big experience of education on practical construction subjects.
The project aim is to increase job opportunities for existing and future specialists in construction and restoration industry by raising their traditional restoration – craft skills in both regions.
Regional level synergy will be achieved between Vocational education and Craft education: Panevezys vocational education and training centre will adapt to its needs restoration module in VET programmes, while Zalenieki Commercial and Craft school will develop new training modules, will start apprenticeships and will expand its offered lifelong learning programmes. During the project 215 future workers and 64 existing workers will increase their competitiveness in the labour market.
