Brescia, scholastic orientation: three days at Palazzo “MO.Ca” for

Brescia. On Wednesday 16, Thursday 17 and Friday 18 November, the Mo.Ca Orienta project will be held in the “Mo.Ca” building (former court) in via Moretto 78 in Brescia, three days dedicated to orientation for school students Upper secondary schools.
The initiative was signed by the Municipality of Brescia, the Province of Bresca and by the Coordination of Training Bodies of the Province of Brescia, which represents the eighteen Cfp accredited in the Lombardy Region for the Professional Qualification and Professional Technical Diploma courses.

Orientation is that process that manifests itself in the moment in which the person is engaged in making a choice, in deciding between as many options as possible.
Doing orientation at school requires the student to be put in a position to be aware of himself, of his own personality, potential, talents and aspirations. All this will allow the adolescent to make well-founded and effective choices regarding his scholastic and subsequently professional future.
There are still too many young people who make their own school choices simply letting themselves be guided by the group of peers or families, students who choose one school rather than another because it is more convenient to reach or more famous and prestigious than others or, on the contrary, simpler than others.

Orientation is a very complex process and articulated that, as such, should accompany the student throughout his / her studies, not only to support him in certain periods of transition and choice.
Lack of guidance is one of the major causes of early school leaving. Orientation in the school environment is therefore aimed at allowing students to stimulate their attention towards contemporary reality, to make them aware of the defense mechanisms that individuals implement, to increase and enhance their skills, to restore greater awareness about their real interests, to give meaning to their previous experiences by providing them with tools and methodologies aimed at an introspective analysis.

The choice of secondary school is an important moment in the life of adolescents, it is an often painful decision, which conditions the future of school and work in a difficult and delicate period such as adolescence. This choice, as well as that of what to do after high school, is a complex process that involves basic factors, such as the specific interests and inclinations of the students, but which is also influenced by other factors, not evident, such as the social environment where teenagers live. In fact, students are very often pushed by their parents to choose a given course of study, with the intention of directing them, perhaps, to follow the same professional and working path as their father or mother. A not indifferent role in the process of choice also plays the group of peers: it is inevitable, in fact, that adolescents are confronted with the choices made by friends and consequently let themselves be influenced.

Orientation cannot be separated from education and teaching, the school, therefore, must foresee, internally, a system of guidance support, a task force, with the aim of developing guidance policies for all levels and areas involved. The working group must include a wide range of members such as: school managers, teachers, administrators, specialists and experts involved in teaching (school psychologists, school counselors, etc.), specialists and experts not involved in teaching (eg . psychologists, consultants, etc.) and also parents.
The most active function in the group belongs to the internal specialists, while the external experts must help to gather the necessary information and find the necessary materials, identify good practices and, in addition, train the teachers and internal specialists. In this context, parents are essential, as they become the “litmus test” to evaluate how the proposals by young people are received and considered.
What interests young people is the need to be recognized in their uniqueness, given that they are in a phase of their life where it is difficult to find themselves in a new physical and mental dimension that is transforming them.

Qualifications and diplomas count as a pass for the world of work, from vocational training centers to the many realities that await fresh energy, with tested skills. 82% of young people leaving education and vocational training courses within six months have stable employment, in apprenticeships or with permanent employment.
In this way, young people with operational intelligence are offered the dual perspective of entering the world of work with the skills that this requires without precluding the possibility of pursuing high levels of study. The choice is wide, with a plurality of courses (about forty) for specific tasks, present in the nineteen centers accredited by the Region, with offices spread throughout the provincial territory.

There is a positive trend in this area of ​​the education system which, this year, engages around 8,600 students after having registered a growth of four percent at the time of enrollment and which plans new courses for next year, in response to the demand of companies that look carefully and involved in these opportunities.
Due to its characteristics, the VET therefore plays a decisive role in combating early school leaving and any form of marginalization of young people, representing a concrete possibility for students to achieve their educational success.

The “three days” will take place on 16, 17 and 18 November in the “Mo.Ca“(Former court) in via Moretto 78, with the following program: Wednesday 16 November, at 10, live streaming with presentation of the teachers and learners of fifteen training courses: Thursday 17 and Friday 18 December, from 9 to 13.30, visit of the Grade I Secondary Schools of the stands set up by the Brescia CFPs inside the building with the possibility of “touching” the various training courses offered.
