The procedure provides that the Project must be carried out exclusively online on the platform dedicated to the link https://studentiatleti.indire.it/, where the school and the sports student must register and also the certificate of possession of the sporting requirements. be introduced. Once the PFP has been downloaded, the director must digitally sign it and add it to the platform.
The Personalized Training Project, in addition to containing all the student’s data, provides for the inclusion of specific indications on the timing and methods of verification and evaluation of disciplinary learning. In particular, the following must be indicated:
– the personalized methodological / didactic measures adopted (distance learning activities taught by the Institute and / or on ministerial platforms, scheduling of deadlines for delivery of works, use of brochures and didactic support materials, continuous recovery activities, tutoring activities – peer tutoring, video lessons, distance learning classes on an integrated digital teaching platform);

In the context of the Personalized Training Project (PFP) there are also the “Orientation paths and transversal competences” (PCTO), as the sports activities practiced by student-athletes at the highest competitive levels go back to these paths. In this case it is necessary to stipulate a special agreement between the school and the institution, the Federation, the company or sports association recognized by the CONI that follow the sporting trajectory of the student, who will appoint the external tutor with the task of ensuring the connection with the educational institution.
