sintesi italiano

Il potenziamento della comunicazione in lingua straniera è un fattore rilevante per lo sviluppo delle attività economiche soprattutto in quei settori con forte espansione verso mercati esteri (moda, comunicazione, ecc.) e/o con un elevato grado di esposizione a contatti in lingua estera anche interni (turismo, ristorazione, artigianato tipico, trasporti, ecc.). Lo sviluppo delle competenze linguistiche consente maggiore incisività e successo nella comunicazione in contesti internazionali, sostiene efficacemente i processi di internazionalizzazione delle attività e di networking e sviluppa capacità di acquisire, gestire e scambiare le informazioni, utilizzando le tecnologie informatiche e di comunicazione. Obiettivo di questo progetto è permettere agli imprenditori artigiani di migliorare le proprie capacità manageriali, sviluppare contatti con clienti stranieri, incrementare le capacità relazionali con enti e operatori internazionali attraverso uno strumento formativo di elevata qualità tecnica e didattica, sufficientemente flessibile e dinamico da potersi facilmente coniugare con la ristretta disponibilità di tempo.


sintesi inglese

Confartigianato (Italian General Trade Confederation) has proposed a vocational-training project dedicated to artisans who wish to improve the knowledge and use of the English language. The aim of this project is to enable artisan entrepreneurs to improve their managerial abilities, develop contacts with foreign customers and increase the relational abilities with international organisations and bodies, through a training programme with high technical and didactic quality. Participation in the course is also open to employees of artisan enterprises, the family members of artisan entrepreneurs and to everyone working in the “Confartigianato system”. The training system focuses on the trainees who attend the courses, and on tailor-made language-teaching services. At the end of the course, assessment of learning is conducted using the BULATS TEST developed by the University of Cambridge.
