European Earth Building and Assessment Training 2018

About

Mobilities are an opportunity to travel to Partner Organisations across Europe for Training in Earth Building and Training in Assessment of Earth Building Training funded by the Erasmus+ programme.

Understanding the nature of the National Vocational Qualification for Earth Building and Plastering, each based on the PIRATE ECVET project UNITS is another step towards an earth building industry backed by a trained and qualified workforce. To gain that understanding and to disseminate it EBUKI applied for funding from the Erasmus+ programme to allow Earth Builders in the UK as well as Assessors in allied trades to travel to Partner organisations already training, assessing and issuing ECVET certificates. This exposure to eco-construction individuals and organisations facing the same issues we have in the UK is an excellent opportunity to disseminate new thinking on a range issues facing earth builders in the UK and across Europe.

The mobilities offered cover travel and expenses but not time. They offer an excellent opportunity to network and learn about earth as a material, its use and ways to teach about it. Mobilities are being run in different locations including France, Germany, Slovakia.
