From 8th to 12th May 2017, CPIA 1 Brescia hosted the Second Transnational Training Event that was attended by four teachers from each partner organizations of the project. The first day was assigned to the presentation of the CPIA 1 Brescia training offer, and a particular emphasis was given to the teaching and the certification of the Italian language.
On this occasion, the coffee break was prepared by the students attending the vocational catering courses sponsored by the regional
CPIA 1 – CFP project.
The second day was the occasion for a sightseeing tour around the multicultural City of Brescia and two of the most attractive boroughs, San Faustino and Carmine and the Santa Giulia Museum were visited, followed by the presentation of the multicultural activities and Educational services developed by the Fondazione Brescia Musei.
On the third day, the CPIA 1 students explained how the making of several video-based units was performed. These video-besed units represent the starting point and the output for the learning of the Italian language within the CPIA 1 project. The students also led the partners to the “studios” so to have them involved in the shooting.
Then each student introduced himself/herself and explained what was his/her role-play within the project. This activity gave them the opportunity to improve their spoken English.
In the afternoon, everybody visited the “Asilo Notturno San Riccardo Pampuri” which is one of the biggest hosting centre for asylum seekers, in terms of numbers of guests, in the province of Brescia. The project partners were also introduced to the practical activities and workshops performed at the centre.
On the fourth day there was a meeting with the operators of NGOs in charge of the management of the asylum seekers in the province of Brescia. They spoke about the hosting and protection system for refugees and asylum seekers (SPRAR stands for Protection System for Refugees and Asylum Seekers) carried out with the endorsement of the Ministry of Interior. Some of the asylum seekers joined the meeting and were able to talk about the path they are following for their social and linguistic integration.
During the training two workshops about the use of the new communication and information technologies were developed by the Spanish partner.
The last day was assigned to the evaluation of the activities of the project and the release of the certificates of attendance of the training week was performed by the school principal.
