L’accompagnamento al lavoro di giovani e adulti: la via per l’occupabilità

Nel corso dello European Business Summit 2016 a Bruxelles, Hans van der Loo, ex vicepresidente della Shell, ha evidenziato che il cambiamento in atto nel corso di questa epoca ha una portata tale da poter essere definito come l’inizio di una nuova “era”, l’Antropocene. Focalizzandosi sull’ambito dell’educazione, formazione e transizione al lavoro, van der Loo afferma: “Today we are educating our young for jobs that do not yet exist, in order to solve problem we are not yet even aware of. Only few seem to be aware of the exponential reality and we seem to think we can tackle 21st century challenges with 20th century education”. Il suo intervento è stato poi ripreso e ampliato dallo stesso van der Loo nel corso della terza edizione del Convegno “Cometa Social Innovation” del 5 maggio 2017: il cambiamento d’epoca in atto, infatti, segna inequivocabilmente la traiettoria di cambiamento del settore educativo, formativo e del lavoro.

A pathway to resilience. Cometa, a place to grow and to become yourself.

In the daily challenge of educational and training activities, the importance to help students, mainly young kids, to develop a personal resilience (zaradność społeczna) is paramount. Cometa Formazione, operating in Como (Italy), is strongly active to create and preserve those conditions to help the kids to recognize and deepen the knowledge of their own attitudes. Based on the concept of “Experiential Learning”, Cometa Formazione and its Oliver Twist school have implemented the “school-enterprise” approach aiming at developing resilience, involving students in creating real products for real customers in school’s workshops: a carpentry, a fashion studio, two coffee shops and a restaurant. The analysis of the method leads to identify five main pillars in the sociological approach for the development of a resilient attitude in students’ life.
