“Energie per la Scuola is part of the younger generations’ journey towards the working world, which is necessary for Italy to successfully achieve its goal of revolutionizing the energy system.”
In line with our #EnelperlItalia commitment, we are contributing to the development of the national economic system with our increasingly smart and digitized infrastructure and networks. Through the Energie per la Scuola project, we are involving students, schools, training institutes and our supplier companies on a path of growth through a professional and certified training course. This path offers many young people the opportunity to make the big leap into the working world and it will contribute, in a broader way, to accelerating the energy transition.
During the 2021/2022 school year, Energie per la Scuola saw the participation of 100 students from all over Italy who were then hired directly by our supplier companies at the end of the course. The success of this first phase, the response of the regions involved and the growing request for professionals with specific skills in the network field are the elements that have further strengthened the program. In the 2022/2023 two-year period, the project will involve sixty schools nationwide, with a commitment to hire more than 500 students at more than 25 companies in our corporate supply chain.
Energie per la Scuola is geared towards students in their last year at both technical and vocational institutes to direct them towards employment opportunities upon graduation offered by the Group’s partners.
The arrangement between schools and businesses includes the stipulation of an agreement based on the model laid out in the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research guidelines.
The training course is free of charge and consists of a basic course totaling 120 hours inserted in the school curriculum during the fifth year that is a prerequisite for the acquisition of technical network jobs. It also includes a specialized practical course totaling 40 hours done after acquiring a diploma. The courses are provided by certified training institutes, in partnership with participating schools.
The vocational skills that the program helps to acquire are that of cable pullers, operators skilled in medium (MV) and low voltage (LV) splicing and termination, operators who assemble secondary substations and Pole Transfer Posts (PTPs), and low-voltage live wire operators. The objective is for the participants, over time, to be able to perform all roles in complete safety.
Energie per la Scuola aims not only to bring deeper knowledge of the electrical power sector into classrooms but also to highlight the job opportunities that the energy transition brings with it.
