PROJECT DESCRIPTION

BACKGROUND

Build Up Skills Ireland 2030 (BUSI2030) will refine and refresh the Irish National Platform to reflect the dynamic policy and sectoral changes which have occurred since 2013. Topics such as digitisation, circular economy, embodied carbon and related fields have now emerged strongly as priority areas, which were not specifically addressed in the original BUSI initiative. BUSI2030 brings together relevant expertise and knowledge to produce an updated Status Quo Analysis which will compile and reflect the education and training needs for the future. The Status Quo report will thus inform future actions and a National Roadmap. By engaging new stakeholders as the Construction Sector Group BUSI2030 is confident of endorsement of the Roadmap, which will be linked to key policy and programme initiatives in Ireland. A particular focus of the revitalised platform will be placed on the financing and investment (public and private) required to deliver the education, training and skills required. BUBUSI2030 will set a clear pathway for upskilling building professionals and workers in Ireland thus ensuring that the built environment sector achieves Ireland 2030 energy and carbon ambitions (and is on a trajectory to carbon neutrality by 2050). BUSI2030 will bring together, within an updated Status Quo report, the skills demand for both retrofit and new build in line with Irelands Climate Action Plan and Housing for All Strategy. The work of BUSI2030 will be directly aligned with the ambitions of the Construction Sector Group (CSG) and build on the achievements of the Construction Blueprint within the Irish Context. The Status Quo Report will inform a new BUSI2030 Roadmap for Ireland which will be developed through consultation and engagement with industry stakeholders. The roadmap will present an action plan of measures, aligning with existing activities, while also identifying gaps and future synergies.
