vocational training & work experience

Preparation for working life

Preparation for Working Life combines work placement in a local company and a classroom-based unit, 'Preparation for gaining employment’. The programme is designed to prepare participants for professional life and help them develop their communication skills.

Project-based training

Project-based training is a highly beneficial programme for participants with lower language skills or wishing to work in a difficult industry sector. The training takes place in a partner centre and is a hands-on, practical experience where participants complete smaller projects to better understand the work cycle in their chosen trade.

Turin, Italy

The original capital of Italy, Turin is one of the main centres of Italian culture and business. Located in the north, the city offers amazing scenery with the Alps and its valleys, the city itself is cut in two by the River Po.

With a history dating back to 27 BC, it was in 1860 that Turin saw its most important period by guiding the Italian unification movement; in more recent times it led the country in its industrial period through the influence and importance of FIAT cars.

Since the successful hosting of the Winter Olympic Games in 2006, Turin has undergone big changes, moving from a focus on industrial sectors to that of real and sustainable tourism which fully highlights the potential of the city.

Social and Cultural

Social activities include walking tours at night visiting many of Turin’s famous sights and lesser known areas such as San Salvario and Quadrilatero Romano districts, food and wine tasting and concerts.

Turin is considered to be one of the centres of Italian enogastronomy (sampling the tastes of flavours of Italian food and drink in the country itself), and has by far one of the most vibrant music scenes in Italy.

Among the most interesting of the city-tours is the one which offers you the chance to view the cutting-edge architecture and it's avant-garde, modern and contemporary art galleries.
