Livorno, May 5, 2022 – Once the process that led to its birth is complete, yesterday, Wednesday May 4, the Foundation for Building Technological Academy (ATE), a new regional training organization aimed at training professionals and technical personalities of global construction.
ATE is a higher technical institute of high technological specialties of the construction sector, which will train superior technicians specializing in the world of construction and in the “home system”. It targets high school and university graduates alike.
Four training courses developed by ITS ATE to train construction technicians, which will start at the end of October: “Senior Technician for Digitization of Building Processes” (which will be hosted at the Building School in Via Piedmont in Livorno), “Technician for Architectural Restructuring” based in Siena , “Senior Site Management Technician” based in Pisa, “Superior Technician for Innovation and Housing Quality” based in Lucca.
The Foundation’s headquarters will be in Livorno, in the Town Hall in Barreira Garibaldi, currently awaiting renovation.
The official presentation was attended by the Adviser to Education, Training and Labor and the University of Tuscany Alessandra NardiniMayor of Livorno Luca SalvettiLabor Adviser of the Municipality of Livorno Gianfranco SimonciniAnd Christina Greco The Ministry of Education , Stefano Frangerini And Marco Jonesrespectively President and Director of ATE, Alessandro TuranoDirector of the Buontalenti Institute who will be responsible, as the leader of the new training reality, for the certification at the end of the two-year course.
“This inauguration – said the mayor Luca Salvetti – It’s a lane we’ve been waiting anxiously for, it’s an access point but also a starting point. Livorno needs news and new options. In this sense, the opening of the Higher Technical Institute and the choice of Livorno to create a course of this kind is in our favor and proud of us.”
“We have come to the beginning of a very important path, not to the end – said the Work and Training Counselor Gianfranco Simoncini – which in the next few years will allow us to provide hundreds of students, upon graduation, the opportunity to acquire new skills, a new postgraduate degree that can be spent in an important sector such as the construction sector. Thus we greatly enrich the educational offer of our region, because ITS are regional tools, and obviously our city also because we are candidates and we are the representative and training center of this institute, which will later become an institute that will immediately operate throughout the region.
It’s a fact – we added Simoncini – we desperately wanted it as an area, starting with the idea of the National Association of Building Builders. The local training schedule, this tool that we gave ourselves with the Salveti Council, immediately began to consider this possibility, also trying to gather data that would catalyze the opportunity, and immediately find great availability on the part of Councilman Nardini. It is easy to say the reason for this opportunity: construction is a sector that is undergoing an important transformation phase, in fact, in the past two years, thanks to a series of stimulus measures implemented by governments, the recovery has been recorded in terms of labor turnover and in terms of employment. However, the recovery is not only related to incentives but also to the fact that, as a country system, we need a strong restructuring, redevelopment and recovery of the building stock and this requires an investment in training for both those already working in the sector but also and above all the new professional figures to be It has to enter the labor market and build.”
The value of the Higher Art Institutes was emphasized by the Tuscany Formation Counsellor Alessandra Nardini: “We strongly believe in intelligent transportation systems – commented consultant Nardini -, they are an important training part to overcome this mismatch, this imbalance between supply and demand for work that still exists in our country today. With ITS we provide an answer to the training needs of companies, ensuring opportunities Very good to integrate into the world of work for girls and boys who complete these paths.”
He concluded: “There is a strong investment in ITS at the national level as well, thanks to the significant resources of the NRP program which we hope will soon reach our lands – as he concluded -. With regard to the seven-year planning of the new European funds, a significant share is expected to be allocated to Intelligent Transportation Systems, a tool that in recent years has achieved excellent results, because more than 80% of girls and boys who leave these pathways manage to enter the world of work and for more than 90% of them do so in a manner consistent with the course they followed.”
