With the end of the 2021-2022 school year and, most importantly, after a period heavily limited by the pandemic situation, the school-work alternation involving various functions within the company is back on track.
Within the framework of the High 5 program, projects aimed at bringing school and the working world closer together were carried out regularly throughout the year through discussions with professors and school leaders who, well aware of how PCTOs (Programs for Cross-Cutting Skills and Orientation) can be a useful tool for young people, have become a reference point for organizing high-value activities.
For Buzzi Unicem, all this represents an opportunity for supporting the future professional growth of the students involved, through the preparation of projects aimed at enriching the cultural and personal background of each individual pupil, according to the logic of "learning by doing." During the school year, there were several opportunities to interact with young people from different fields of study and from many classes of the three-year vocational high school, each with his or her own history and ability to deal with new things. With this in mind, the offered activities were customized in an attempt to align them with the students' actual potential. The offer is intended to involve both students from high schools and vocational institutes that train interesting figures for a working environment such as ours.
The internship programs at the company can be broken down into a series of activities aimed at developing both the students' cross-cutting skills (general skills related to thinking and cognitive processes, patterns of behavior in social and work settings, the ability to reflect and use learning strategies and self-correcting behavior) and technical skills, thanks to specialized training in the classroom and under the guidance of the company tutor, at the plant facilities.
This year, along with the executive offices and the production sites, Buzzi Unicem made available its new technological laboratory called Built which, in collaboration with the University of Eastern Piedmont (UPO), carries out Research & Development in a dynamic and stimulating context, contributing to the cultural and scientific growth of students and teachers.
This phase of the year has come to a successful end and has confirmed the students' willingness to bounce back from the difficult period that has just passed in order to tackle with great commitment the projects specifically developed for them, with a view to the future.
