Workshops of ideas for the future

Teaching / learning of basic and transversal skills

Brief description of the main purposes and contents

The project had the objective of activating paths with the involvement above all of young people and children from school drop-outs through a teaching oriented to ‘know-how’. After a first moment of orientation, thanks to which the dossiers containing the experiences, acquired skills and aspirations of each individual student were created, each one was directed to one (or more than one) modules.

The modules proposed activities aimed at the acquisition and development of both soft and hard skills. For all those in need, before the attendance of the modules, hours of Italian L2 were provided in order to bring everyone to a level of linguistic competence not lower than B1.

In addition, basic courses (4 hours) on safety in the workplace have been activated with the issue of a certificate that can be spent in companies.
In addition, a period of internship/stage has been provided to students in local companies to enhance their skills, developed in the project.
