||As a result of recent calls for improvements in the quality of construction standards throughout Europe and in an effort to promote energy efficient building, a skills gap analysis in Ireland identified a number of key areas where construction workers required further training. Based on this analysis, a pilot training programme designed to up-skill existing trainers QualiBuild -Train the Trainers in new building standards required for low energy buildings was developed. The QualiBuild TtT pilot programme was designed to focus on active learning, incorporating a flipped learning model for delivery. Peer assessment was used to facilitate this approach and as a means for addressing one of the key areas highlighted by the gap analysis, that of attitudinal change.
