By 2030, the global construction industry is expected to grow by 85% and become one of the most dynamic economic sectors. This boom is no surprise given the expected population growth in the emerging markets, the necessary infrastructure improvements in many industrialised countries and the trend towards more residential space.
Since the construction industry will continue to secure the jobs of many people in the future, it is necessary to invest more in modern training and further education for the skilled workers needed.
GPP has already carried out qualification measures in the construction industry in cooperation with its partners - the German vocational development agencies and the local training institutes and chambers of foreign trade - in various target countries and areas and has pursued a geographically decentralised approach.
In a post-revolutionary Egypt marked by youth unemployment, GPP together with its Egyptian and German partners conducted extensive training courses from 2012-2014 in the cities of Cairo, Luxor and Asyut in painting, masonry, tiling, scaffolding, installation and plant mechanics for sanitary, heating and airconditioning technology.
In the Ukraine, GPP initiated a training programme for dry construction, bricklaying and carpentry at various vocational schools in the country in 2014 and 2015. Young people in eastern Ukraine, who are suffering from the political and economic crisis, have benefited most from the measures. In the following years of 2016 and 2017, further training programmes were also carried out in the trades of drywall and masonry construction, in which 60 vocational schools took part nationwide.
