IDEA originates from a study on the relationships between job and school education, carried out by the Italian Industrial Union, data by EUROSTAT concerning young unemployment in the UE, a McKinsey's report on the italian economic situation and studies of the School of Management of Milan. Collectively these informations indicate the presence in Italy of a gap between jobs and school education, an aspect that is dramatically worsened by the large percentage of unemployment among young.
The specific objective of this project - involving 27 schools located in Lombardia, Piemonte and Emilia Romagna - is to create a professional figure required by companies/firms that is not offered by the italian educational system. Additionally, the project will haver positive benefits on about 28.000 students and 3.800 teachers, and 1/3 of the total italian firms. Moreover, the professional figures predicted by the project will receive competences from i)advanced informatic knowledge, ii) ability to use the cloud computing system in a foreign language, both in the productive areas and in the commercial offices to facilitater their internationalization, and iii) increase the qualification on the commercial and informatic micro-languages related to: german, spanish, french and bulgarian that are, in this order, the most requested by the firms in the four regions involved in the project.
318 students selected from the classes of the fourth and fifh year of 25 Technical, Professional Institutes and High Schools in Economics and Informatics specialization will attend a training stage of 5 weeks in firms located in Frankfurt, Vienna, Cadige, Valencia, Portmouth, Malta, Sofia, Cannes. The stage will be done during June, July and August 2015. In addition the students will receive, in their destination countries, 40 hours formation session dedicate to improve the specific commercial and informatic microlanguage.
The departure will be preceded in Italy by an extracurricular formation period of 400 hours through e.learning sessions, in place learning and training stage in the firms. Twenty teachers will follow the same formation program as the students in the firms.
In addition to the specific objectives, the project will have positive consequences on both the participant schools and the italian educational system as follow:
1-to introduce into the schools the education for employment procedures, with a constant collaboration between school and firms on the territory connected with the Industrial Unions, Unioni Territoriali and Category partners, that will produce as outcomes an enhancement of the italian educational system, joining it with the professional figures emerging from the job market
2-to increase employment among young people by promoting their hiring in the firms participating to the partner Category associations
3-to start a constant international collaboration between schools and firms to I) introduce into the italian educational system a pragmatic approach to the international job market, and ii) gain a better knowledge of each other, and iii)strenght the teaching of the commercial and informatics micro-lanuages
4-help the knowledge among the partner schools of the German dual formation system; this has the scope to promote the formation of an experimental program in the partner schools in collaboration with the firms willing to join this experimental program
5-create a common procedure in the italian evaluating system based on ECVET, this for the coomprehension of the competences and knowledges acquired by the students, both in school and in the working area at National and International in order to facilitate the international mobility of the students to favour their employment.
Finally this project aims to develop a data bank useful to the tracking of a participant student from the end of the project to the actual employment and working as data source for future analysis on the educational project integrated to the need of the job market.
The ambitious scope of this project are justified by the web by involving partners that have competence, knowledge, and financial means to sn the project action. In particular, the fact that only the constant interaction between National and International education and work abilities, will allow the solution of the dramatic issues connected to the unemployment of the young people.
The main actors in this projects are the partners schools, the Industrial Union in its territorial entities, the Goethe Institute collaborating with the British Council and Cervantes Institute for the linguistic formations and the ECVET in collaboration with Dr. Faggioli of INDIRE, the international partners for their connection to the firms on their territory, the Office XVI of MIUR-ER for the validation of the congruity of the project with the MIUR.
The long term benefits are the enhancement of the interaction schoool-job
