Start date: Nov 1, 2014, End date: Oct 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

At present the economic crisis is hitting above all young people as confirmed by “ISTAT” and “OCSE” statistics. After analysing various reports for 2013 by CEDEFOP, Censis, ISFOL, Excelsior and F.A.R.P. Lab, regarding training and work-placement needs, it has emerged that in order to find a job, you not only need basic qualifications and diplomas but also meta competences, linguistic and IT skills. Professional training is continually moving towards “wider” horizonts, since the companies, have been obliged to “emerge” from a segmented market into a global market, which requires qualified skills, in order to become more flexible, adaptable and mobile. In this competitive global scene, education can contribute to maximize the professional training allowing young people to take part in projects involving new experiences in the work context which will positively reflect on their personal profile. The project is aimed at 120 students attending class IV. Students will consolidate their training, they will need to improve their technical and professional skills as well as linguistic skills and transversal competences. The schools have already had experience in this field involving mobility and on-the-job training where the relationship between training given and the company’s professional needs coincide with the students training. The beneficiaries will have the chance of going on a training and work placement at host organizations in various countries with diverse cultures, geographical positions and with different social and economic situations: Britain, Spain, Ireland, and France. The activities are going to be formalized with partners by agreements and Memoranda of understanding. The training period will be of three weeks. The host partners have been chosen on the basis of them being well placed socially, economically, and industrially in their environment enabling them to give the trainees a high quality work experiences in enterprises. The host partners have already collaborated in LdV projects with schools involved in conformity with the regulations stated in the European Quality Charter of Mobility. The project work begins before the work-placement by giving out information, selecting the participants and proceeding with preparatory activities from linguistic, cultural, and orientation point of view. The trainee will be constantly supervised both logistically and when in training in order to pin-point any possible problems and to be able to correct them. The results will be used for assessing the training and the project. The LETWORK project offers an important experience for students to evaluate and improve their skills in diverse situations where there are strong multilinguistic and multicultural differences. It will allow the schools involved to widen and improve their own training and to become aware of other situations and standards. It will also encourage and motivate the learning of a foreign language both socially and in the workplace making the beneficiaries realize the importance of lifelong learning. Throughout the all project life, the various steps of strategic communication, monitoring, evaluation, dissemination, exploitation of results, management carried out and the measurement of the quality of the general impact. Participation in this project will be certified with the awarding of the Europass, certificate of attendance of the language course and of the work placement. The project respects equal opportunities and it will provide a good value for money.
