EDUCATION, JOBS AND GUIDANCE
THE FOCAL POINTS OF ABCD+ORIENTAMENTI 2014, ON THE CALENDAR FOR NOVEMBER AT THE FIERA DI GENOVA
“Do not listen to those who try to diminish the value of what you have done or to limit your prospects. You are bright, capable youth, and your success represents a good omen for the future of our country.” Greeting Liguria’s youth hard at work on their graduation exams, the General Manager of the Regional Educational Offices Giuliana Pupazzoni joined the message of hope and faith that has been launched as the main theme of this year’s upcoming Salone Orientamenti (Guidance Fair): “Stay hungry and foolish, and also enthusiastic.”
“Stay hungry. Stay foolish,” the famous phrase stated by Steve Jobs paves the way for the 2014 edition of ABCD+Orientamenti.
The leading Italian Fair for the world of education, training, and work has its sights set on the future, and this year, has expanded its offering of concrete tools for tackling new challenges to advance the growth and development of youth.
Digital schools, childhood teaching, study abroad trips and youth mobility, with BTS² - Borsa del Turismo scolastico e studentesco (Educational Tourism Scholarship), training and work opportunities in the tourism sector offered by Expo 2015, and the pressing issue of school construction will be the key sectors of the area dedicated to education.
Job will explore the subject of job security for youth, also in reference to the Job Act, and offer an intense career day on an international level for the first time, as well as the second edition of the Professional Olympics, an initiative that actively engages youth and encourages them to set high quality goals.
Orientamenti (Guidance) will offer students and families in-depth assistance in making informed choices regarding paths of study and training from the end of middle school through to life learning training.
For the second consecutive year, aboard Sailor, the guidance ship, maritime professions will be the focus of three days of in-depth events and activities engaging the participation of hundreds of students.
