PaintingSkillsAcademy – PSA

The PaintingSkillsAcademy is an Erasmus+ project co-financed by the EU under the Sector Skills Alliance framework and coordinated by SBG Dresden (DE).

The project started in December 2019 and it will last for 3 years.

It aims to merge all the other previous projects for the sector with the establishment of a structure for initial and further training for the European Painting trade under the umbrella of UNIEP.

The main activities developed within the project include the description of quality standards and units of learning outcomes (level 1-6 EQF), the description of curricula, the recognition of acquired competencies and the correct assignment to the PSA competency level on level 1-6 EQF (methods / procedures) and the formulation of specific PSA training offers (for the different target groups at the different EQF levels, for learning at different learning locations in Europe).
