Credits for the former evening courses – Second level – Adult education (IDA)
As regards the second level education – IDA, formal, not formal and informal credits may be acknowledged to the students who satisfy the requirements, enabling them not to attend the learning units for which the credit is acknowledged. The permanent education may be defined as any activity we formally or informally undertake throughout our lives, towards the improvement of our knowledge, skill and competence, with the potential of a personal, civic, social and occupational growth.
Legislative decree 13 (13/01/2013) – Formal learning
Typical of the teaching and professional system, of universities and of high-quality artistical, musical and dancing institutions, oriented to the achievement of a qualification or a professional diploma, even in apprenticeships, or to a recognized certification, complying with the existing legislation about school and university organisation.
Characterized by an intentional choice of the individual, this learning is achieved out of the aforementioned systems, in every institution pursuing educational and formative purposes, even from voluntary work, community service, private social work and in business.
Not formal learning
Achieved in the daily life of every individual, from the interactions in every context of life: at work, in the family, in the free time.
Skills oriented teaching – Second level education – IDA
Following the MIUR guidelines, the skill oriented teaching was introduced for the adult education. According to this approach, the student and the teacher pursue skills and knowledge which are not only aimed to school success, but also to their real applicability in the operational sector, through the resolution of problematic issues based on real situations.
The whole educational activity of second level is divided into three periods: first two-year educational period, second two-year educational period and fifth year.
From a methodological point of view, there has been a shift from the planning of curricula-based formative activities, to the planning of educational units based on skills, formative objectives, modular approach. The teachers agree on the type of skills each unit must be oriented, according to the level and the type of course.
Customized study plans for adults
Every student is given a Personal Formative Agreement, based on their previous individual educational career, taking account of the causes of their school failures and of their previous work experiences.
Thanks to this document, it is possible to customise individual curricula, to undertake with the help of new technologies, support measures, skill assessments, tutoring. Recognized professional skills may lead to a recalculation of the individual course hours.
The school features a consistent number of specialized laboratories, in order to support the activities of exercise and experimentation in the technical field.
The students are taught about the use of the many machines and the technical, computer and multimedia supports, in order to allow them to gain qualitative and quantitative experiences toward their learning process, facilitating thus the shift from theory to practice. All laboratories comply with the safety standards.
Scientific area: Physics laboratory and Chemistry laboratory. The laboratories are provided with specific equipment, in order to allow experiments and practical exercitations based on the learned topics. Mechanical area: the laboratories are provided with many measuring and analysis instruments, and with machines apt to reproduce the processes of production in the mechanical, electrical, electronic and technical field.
These instruments allow the student to achieve the following skills:
• Measuring, elaborating and evaluating sizes and technical features with proper equipment;
• Organising the production process, defining the implementation, the supervision and the test of the product;
• Designing structures, devices and systems;
• Defining, classifying and planning supervision, automation and robotics systems applied to the production process;
• Managing projects according to the procedures and the safety and quality standards
