Paulet, Jean-Louis; And Others
Five studies assessed the impact on systems and jobs of the recognition of qualifications in the field of the restoration and rehabilitation of the architectural heritage in five countries: Germany, Belgium Dutch-speaking region, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom. A striking feature in all five countries was the insignificant share of initial vocational training devoted to restoration and rehabilitation skills. Although the greater part of training in specific skills was accounted for by continuing training provision, all five countries had a shortfall in this sector. The concepts of "qualification" or "authorization" had different applications in the various countries. New needs had prompted the introduction of new training courses in specific skills leading to the award of certificates or diplomas. The job market for personnel qualified in restoration and rehabilitation skills was still small in all five countries. Firms still operated by trial and error. A general conclusion was that the upgrading and recognition of specific qualifications in rehabilitation and restoration skills had barely begun. (The 17-page summary report is followed by the five country reports. Each report provides information on these elements: training for the qualifications, recognition by firms as regards positioning in the classifications, and allocation of tasks. (YLB)
