At the same wavelength, the Minister of Regional Affairs, Maria Stella Gelmini. “They are no longer the children of a minor or second-tier god, they are a fundamental part of the post-diploma training system and a way to combine knowledge with know-how. ” explained.

The comparison between training and theory

To build the Italy of tomorrow, Gelmini has to face a close confrontation between Training and theoretical preparationwith the ability to give power and energy to the production chains that represent Made in Italy. It’s time to take a qualitative leap to create a national ITS system“.

Gelmini recalls the parliamentary way to come to a turning point. “There is a reform in Parliament he added. There are no more alibis: there are resources, with 1.5 billion, Parliament is actually ready to vote for the ITS reform, perhaps even earlier than expected.“.

Over the years – he continued – the resources allocated to support these paths have been significantly increased: in POR FSE 2022/2023, we agreed on over 4 million euros to support the paths created by the 9 Tuscan ITS Foundations, and within the new programming of the new seven-year European Union. Structural Funds We will guarantee further resources to the Foundation“.

Mazzeo he remembers “the definition, last year, of the Memorandum of Understanding with the Regional School Office precisely to give the Assembly a permanent instrument of relationship and sharing of goals and projects“, Then underline that”the relationship between training and work is a central theme that requires at the same time the solidity of the arguments that guide voters and the visionary ability to design a future that is often realized through discontinuities and ruptures.“.

Teachers and risks in the world of social media

The strategy against early school exchanges

There are many open fronts for the school world: among the most important is the one concerned educational povertyin the leaving school early. For example, the first education pact for Naples has already been signed. “ZEWe have used many instruments, in particular the entire part of the NRP, which concerns school teachers. Education pacts provide the opportunity to involve the whole community around its school. We did that and we have already invested 500 million for the part of 12 to 18 and another 500 million for the second chance, for missing children.“.

Never let your security guard down

Remember that this is the country that has the highest death rate at work, not just for young people. If it happens to a boy, he must make it clear that this is not possible for everyone, at least for a boy“, The Minister concluded.
