Education project

RunkoPES Timber Construction System and CLT in Education

The objective of the RunkoPES Timber Construction System and CLT in Education project is to ensure the availability of skilled workforce for construction and timber product companies in the future, and to develop the expertise of Woodpolis personnel and the lecturers of Kainuu Vocational College. The goal is to create a new training unit to be included in the housing construction curriculum and specialising in the use of the new RunkoPES timber construction system and CLT. The new training unit will also benefit labour market training.

Another aim of the project is to develop, on the basis of national models, a plan for the organisation of housing construction education in a new way in the form of apprenticeship training.

The project will generate teaching materials for the new training unit, lead to the reorganisation of continuing education and the arrangement of the various working life phases of teachers.

The City of Kuhmo has the main responsibility for the project, with Kainuu Vocational College acting as its partner. The budget of the project is 366.505 €. The project is financed by the European Social Fund (ESF) 75 %, Kainuu ELY Centre, the City of Kuhmo and Kainuu Vocational College. The project was realised between 1 September 2015 and 31 December 2017.
