Skills development – the key to the future

For methodological developments and new technical possibilities to be put to practical use, new knowledge is often needed. Knowledge is also a perishable commodity that needs to be constantly replenished.

We want the program to contribute to the conditions for lifelong learning. The purpose is partly to develop us as individuals; all of us who in some way work with the maintenance of our vital infrastructure of water and sewage and municipal roads. On the other hand, this will have the effect of improving our maintenance planning through better decision-making.

We have two main tracks for competence building – microlearning and collaborative projects.

Microlearning (link to swedish page) – where the aim is to contribute small, easily accessible building blocks that add knowledge over time. Can you set aside a few minutes per week for your own learning? New microlearning sections are being developed gradually and we also welcome contributions with good examples.

Examples of topics include digitalization and asset management. Further examples of topics that we plan over time are maintenance planning, operational maintenance and procurement.

The microlearnings consist of approximately 2 to 15 minute episodes and can be found here on the website or via our Youtube channel. Feel free to subscribe to the channel and you will receive a notification every time we post a new learning.

We’ve also put together playlists of around 15 minutes, each containing films on a relevant theme, as well as discussion material and tips for further reading and information. We call this concept the Kunskapskvarten (link to swedish page), or 15 minutes of learning, – a simple way to engage with our growing bank of learning, in a way that is also suitable for groups at your workplace.

A collaborative project is a larger initiative where staff from participating organizations both attend courses and work on their own projects with support. We carried out our first collaborative project in 2023 on the theme of Planning maintenance in water and sewerage, where five organizations participated for six months.

The project was highly appreciated by the participants, who had the chance to learn together, exchange experiences and make contacts.

In the spring, we will open up for registration of interest in a new collaborative project, starting in the autumn of 2024, also this time in water and wastewater. The project will run for one year, and is a unique opportunity for skills development and to share experiences with other actors in the same industry.
