Progetto Marconi has built a strong professional network at regional and national level. The association collaborates with several local organisations, professional associations and companies, offering a variety of training courses specifically designed for firms. The training courses focus on different business-related topics, such as workplace safety, privacy, contract management, mobility procedures and more. Progetto Marconi also provides communication courses aimed at improving companies’ efficiency, competitiveness, reputation and visibility.
The wide range of training strategies and courses designed for local companies is constantly updated and inspired by innovative solutions, based on each company’s specific training needs. Moreover, the association is committed to supporting the local labour market and to do so special attention is devoted to territorial laboratories and performance monitoring.
As an accredited institution for vocational training in Piedmont, Progetto Marconi is also committed to improving the relationship between citizens and companies, in order to enhance the territorial attractiveness of the region.
Since its foundation, the association has conceived and managed a variety of projects and activities for the District 8 of the city of Turin, involving more than 600 local enterprises.
The surveys carried out on these companies have subsequently lead to the development of several initiatives, such as: the organisation of a new district coordination assembly, the launch of 50 traineeship projects for the unemployed in local firms, the organisation of information seminars for businesses, the setting up of the first regional job information desk, the implementation of a project about self-employment, the first territorial “speed job” event, involving local businesses and young people in partnership with the Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce.
This experience was shared as a positive example with other city districts, later becoming an operational model for other municipalities in the metropolitan area of Turin.
Today, Progetto Marconi collaborates with more than 1200 micro and small local enterprises, organising for them apprenticeships programmes and other projects, involving in 70% of the trainings people over the age of 35.
The association is also committed to fostering the inclusion of disabled workers and to promoting a number of work-related activities for schools and VET institutions.
