Learning and working

A thesis discussed at the Università Cattolica di Milano takes an in-depth look at school-work alternation and the need to offer a new environmental sensitivity

 

Work and school. An important combination that’s not always properly put into practice, although in Italy “learning and working” has been widely incorporated in school and business programmes and activities for some years now. There have been challenges, for sure. However, this seems to be the correct (albeit improvable) road to follow.

As part of her Ph.D. in Personal Sciences and Educational Training (area of Pedagogy) at the Università Cattolica, Serena Mazzoli’s thesis explores topics in and around this issue. The title of the thesis is La sostenibilità per una nuova cultura dell’alternanza scuola-lavoro (Sustainability for a new culture of school-work alternation). The aim is to take stock of the implementation of school-work alternation (ASL in Italian) and the pathways for transversal competences and career orientation (PCTO in Italian) which in Italy are offered to all pupils during their last three years of secondary school.

After exploring the general theme, the research takes a deeper look at the educational value of work and then goes on to analyse what is being accomplished in terms of career orientation in Italy. At this point, Mazzoli adds a third element to the research: the theme of sustainability, seen on the one hand as necessary, but also as an “addition” arising from the environmental and cultural awareness that must be cultivated and developed within companies.  The thesis goes on to look at the case of the Loccioni Group (a company based in Le Marche, active in the design and implementation of measurement and control systems), and concludes by explaining that: “School-work alternation and the pathways for transversal competences and career orientation can be important forms of active learning, training young people in knowing how to learn, to do, to be and to live together.  […]

Proactive synergies between school, work and sustainability can promote people’s full development and generate a shared hope for the future”.

Serena Mazzoli’s work is not a foundation text in the debate on school and work, but it is certainly a useful read to acquire an accurate notion on a brand-new approach to personal growth and work that is becoming every day more important.
