Decollatura – “June 20 is approaching and with it the long-awaited departure of the students and professors of the IIS Costanzo who have adopted this quote from the American writer. “In twenty years’ time you will be more disappointed in the things you have not done than in the things you have done. And then release the moorings. Let the trade winds fill your sails. Explore. Sleep. “ Mark Twain. Destination? Malta! At the moment, 15 are facing luggage, students and teachers belonging to the different directorates of the Institute, who in a few days will fly to Malta for a month to do internships in local companies ranging from ICT to agribusiness and digital publishing. But it doesn’t stop there! Students heading to Malta are part of a first flow of mobility that will be followed by a second group of 14 students heading to Ireland in September for the same kind of experience, “says a note. more – they explain – joins what has been achieved in recent years, albeit in a small part due to the pandemic emergency, to support students in personal predisposition to self-employment because the skills and knowledge can be used in the labor market. acquired in the course of his studies “.

“It has an important educational impact for young people Erasmus plus, one of the best known programs among those promoted by the EU – says the director Antonella Mongiardo – In an increasingly culturally complex reality, characterized by globalization and interculture, it is necessary to develop skills high quality transversals, to have an open mind and better job opportunities. Our school has decided to follow the direction indicated by Europe 2020, towards the formation of an active, responsible and solidary citizenship. From this point of view, it is important that schools, like universities, promote the international mobility of students and teachers, in order to accustom young people and adults to thinking in a European and not just national way. “


“Students will be accompanied by IIS Costanzo professors, who will instead be involved in Job Shadowing activities to be trained in the teaching methods used by their peers abroad, as well as ‘Other professors at the Institute who have completed their studies during the course have already done their mobility experience in Malta and Ireland and like those who will be going to the UK in July. This is because the IIS “L. Costanzo “aims to act simultaneously in the professional and personal field of both its teachers and students, proposing mobility activities that allow teachers to continue the process of systemic and methodological innovation of their teaching, and that students acquire a lot of technical-professional skills “. and transversal ones that can be used in the national and European labor market ”.

“That is why – they specify – the Institute strongly expresses the need to get in touch with the European school and business realities, with the aim of touching the innovative know-how in the agricultural sector and the digital services, to make an offer competitive training to its students. and European perspectives and standards. The Erasmus + plan of the Costanzo Institute therefore aims to increase its internationalization as a whole, as stated in the project, ie: “Develop the technical-professional and transversal skills of students in the sectors of Agriculture, Technology of Information and Digital; Orient students in a path of individual planning and support for entrepreneurship through personalized educational processes and activities of permanent and extraordinary guidance; Initiate a dialogue with local agents to propose training courses interconnected with the local industrial reality, affecting school dropout at the regional level “.

Professor Maria Orsola Chiodo, instrumental function of the PCTO, expresses herself in this way about this experience: “Erasmus Plus, or an important opportunity to alternate school-work experience abroad for third and fourth grade students of IIS L. Costanzo. Thanks to this opportunity, the affected students will have the opportunity, in addition to completing the planned ASL hours, to delve into the linguistic aspect, but the achievement of self-determination, personal and professional training will be essential. It is therefore a matter of accompanying traditional education with specific experiences to guide and support the conscious insertion of students into the world of work, at European level ”. “The Erasmus + project” Future Education “was a really exciting experience and I invite all teachers to participate in this opportunity that, although short, can mark their lives, not only at work, but also and above all – This is how Professor Maria Gualtieri, who this winter took part in a mobility experience in Malta, begins – The immense charm of places, rich in history, fun, tradition and natural beauty, leads you to get lost and indulge in the pleasures of this island. I recommend everyone to have this wonderful and rich experience in a place full of beautiful smells, colors and images that only one island can offer! “

Sara, the fourth Liceo Científic, who is eager to leave, also shares her enthusiasm: “Participating in the Erasmus project is, in my opinion, a unique and indispensable experience. That’s why, having had this opportunity, I decided to take it on the fly because it joins a desire I’ve always carried with me: travel. To the trip I add the awareness of dedicating myself to a commitment of trust, responsibility and professionalism, not only to the companies that will welcome us but also to the educational institution that is committed to ensuring that our trip can be lived with total serenity. The desire to get involved, the curiosity towards a country other than mine and the desire to know and learn more about English have pushed me to accept this challenge as exciting as it is at least. From this path that will last a month I hope to work in a company that is able to qualify and further develop my “skills”, be able to better master the English language and meet other people in new places ready to be discovered. . Aware that I will definitely be back with a suitcase full of memories and books to read, I am ready to leave. “” Listening to Sara and her colleagues is such a joy that it pays off with all the effort to complete this wonderful feat! ” concludes Professor Borelli, a leading professor at the Erasmus + Institute.
