|Short company / organisation description:||FORMA.Azione has started its activity in 1997 as Association of Professionals and Consultants, specialised in Vocational Training Services and Adult Learning. In 2005, it was turned into a limited company. It is an Accredited Regional Training Centre since 2003, ISO 9001 certified since 2002, for designing and provision of vocational training services; and accredited for apprenticeship since 2016. It has developed strong relations with local public authorities, private companies, schools and other VET providers, by designing and providing training pathways, mostly financed by ESF, at local and regional level.|
Its mission is to create concrete opportunities for the professional and social development of the target groups, to improve access to training, in particular for low skilled workers, young and elderly people and women, to support career and individual guidance to encourage self-consciousness in managing careers and active ageing, to promote women’s access to and participation in all levels of the labour market also by combating gender stereotypes in vocational training, career selection and professions.
Since the beginning more than 9500 learners have been trained towards different professional profiles and systems of competences and around 500 teachers and trainers have provided courses.
It has been responsible for the learning activities of over 100 apprentices working at COOP Centro Italia, acting as intermediate organization between the funding authority and the employer.
As FORMA.Azione the specific competence lies in the Training Cycle (Training needs analysis, designing, provision, administration and financial reporting, evaluation and review) and it operates in different economic and professional sectors, by cooperating with experts and practitioners in the fields. Particular focus is given to creative and culture industries (CCIs), quality assurance in VET and adult learning, environmental protection and renewable energies, gender equality, career guidance for youth and adults at risk of marginalisation.
It has a strong international expertise on Quality Assurance, thanks to the initiatives developed on the European Peer Review methodology.
