Two experiences. Two cultures. Two ways of observing.


© 2020, Vera Bottazzi

As a teacher I was hosted at Friesland College in the Netherlands. An excellence in Dutch VET: close relationship with local companies and middle school. The goal is to create European worker-citizens. Companies are an integral and decisive part of each student's career development. Back to Italy I was able to implement some of the educational strategies within the CFP Canossa of Bagnolo Mella (Brescia - Italy), improving the VET offer.
As a tutor I accompanied six students to Valencia in Spain. They were hosted in the local families and worked daily in pastry shops. I understood how fundamental these experiences abroad are our students. In terms of work: they acquired numerous skills and were able to compare different approaches to pastry. In relational terms: they were hosted in a family, they made effective use of language skills and understood the cultural tradition of a new country. They left as inexperienced teenagers and returned with a wonderful background of growth.
The hope is that the program will continue to include more and more teachers and students.
