- Integrated model: each system (education, vocational training and the labor market) while maintaining their specificity of action, integrates with others to ensure services / actions aimed and focused on the actual needs of the users;
Each system contributes to the design and implementation of training / educational and professional citizen, taking the value of a node in a network and operating company:
- Model oriented to the needs of the people, needs related to the exercise of citizenship rights, to the enjoyment of skills, to the access and participation to the services that represent one of the challenges posed by the European Union on which to measure.
- Model built around Local Training Pacts, which represent the place of consultation. Around their priorities and circumstances, each territory was equipped with a shared strategy, articulated in the objectives and expected results, activities and indicators of success of the strategy, and that through the centrality of education and training throughout life, will pursue the goal of innovation, change and participation. This requires, on the part of each of the actors involved, to rethink its supply system and therefore of organizational mechanisms, managerial, production, both from the efficiency point of view that the effectiveness, in order to better qualify and finalize the services provided.
- Model coherent with the European perspective of the “lifelong guidance”, because it takes as its objective:
- strengthening of guidance throughout life in order to provide users with the ability to manage their educational and professional careers, as well as the moments of transition between the educational, training and career paths.
- improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the sectors education, training and work and contribution to the reduction of early school leaving, the strengthening of the meeting between demand and supply of skills and increased productivity.
The Program Plan of the Association has been structured in accordance with these scenarios / objectives, assuming the articulation of two lines of service Long Life Learning:
- The policy of promoting learning for life -long learning (or learning, also known as the Lifelong Learning) is based on the awareness of the institutions that among their duties is also to facilitate the exercise of right of all citizens of all ages, social class or professional status, training, learn and grow, both in terms of social and vocational education, for the entire life span. Ongoing formation is not understood only as learning for employment, but also personal, civic and social, connecting to other key targets, such as employability, adaptability and active citizenship. The people in this difficult moment in history – society, to bridge the deep sense of uncertainty that pervades all areas of their lives, need to find individual solutions to socially produced problems. Lifelong Learning (Lifelong Learning) is the solution, also identified as a priority by the European Community, to respond to the growing demand for knowledge that the individual is having to respond to the world of work, in relationships with others, in living in general in a multicultural, global, connected permanently. The person does not complete his training period with the completion of higher or university education but continues to be formed not only professionally but mainly to get back on topic continues to produce, even in the deep, continuous and progressive transformation of the self.
- Social Inclusion: social inclusion means the promotion of equal opportunities for access to education, training, employment, community services, with specific attention to particularly vulnerable groups (migrants, prisoners, addicted, disabled) and issues related to poverty, exclusion and, more recently, the problems posed by multi-ethnic society. The EU considers the social inclusion process which ensures that those at risk of poverty and social exclusion gain the opportunities and resources necessary to participate fully in economic, social and cultural life and to enjoy a standard of living and a being that is considered normal in the society in which they live. On the labor market, the main objective is to facilitate the integration or reintegration of those at risk.
