Training in Foggia

Training in Foggia

According to the project, each partner has to carry out an internal training for the members of the staff in order to inform and coach as much teachers/trainers as possible on the UTC model.

The Italian partners (ENAC and ENDOFAP) organised a joined training in Foggia during last July. The 2 days training involved 26 staff members with different roles in the VET centers: coordinators, teachers, trainers as well as principals.
During the first day the Project Manager Luca Calligaro introduced the Early School Workers project and Prof. Emanuele Serrelli explained the basic elements that underpin the UTC model. The partcipants had the
chance to go through the UTC guidelines and have an explanation of the model from the group of teachers that visited the UTC Warrington in November 2018.

At the end of the day Prof. Roberto Franchini talked
about Project Based Learning & Enrichment Activities, two interactive methodology applied at UTC Warrington and the participants discussed how these elements could be embedded in the local context.

The following day ENDOFAP trainers shared some tools and general considerations about the importance of the soft skills in the curriculum delivered in the Italian VET centers. The rest of the morning was spent in
working groups reflecting on soft skills and PBL activities and how to include them in the VET center activities.

The training will continue in November with another 2 intensive days in Piacenza. Stay tuned to have more information.
