sintesi italiano

Il progetto ALIM nasce dal riconoscimento della crescente importanza dello sviluppo della competenza linguistica per chi opera nel settore della Pubblica Amministrazione, individuando nella padronanza della lingua inglese (o di una seconda lingua) un fondamentale strumento di arricchimento, personale e professionale nonché uno strumento per il consolidamento della dimensione europea del singolo e della struttura di appartenenza. Nel progetto ALIM sono stati realizzati e riadattati prodotti metodologicamente innovativi per l’apprendimento della lingua inglese, intesa come elemento professionalizzante essenziale per garantire la competitività del singolo e della struttura per la quale opera ed eliminare il rischio di emarginazione dall’attuale società e mercato del lavoro. Questi materiali didattici rappresentano il punto di partenza per promuovere attività pratiche che, prendendo spunto dalle riflessioni e dalle esercitazioni offerte nei materiali stessi, sviluppano il confronto sulle tematiche oggetto di analisi (gestione di progetti in ambito comunitario, con esplicito riferimento alla progettazione e alla gestione delle partnership) e possono essere impostate anche come spazi per il consolidamento e la comunicazione on line nella lingua su cui si vuole sviluppare la competenza.


sintesi inglese

The “Alma Mater” Foundation, co-ordinated by Sinform and with partners including Italian and foreign trade unions and universities, has set up a project aimed for the managers of the Public Administration responsible for transnational relations in the education and training sector. The aim, of course, was to improve their knowledge of English through a method involving the production of teaching material, cooperative learning and network-based training. The first part of the project involved considerable effort to identify the needs of the beneficiaries. Besides dealing with languagelinked objectives, it was also necessary to cover thematic topics close to the vocational needs and interests of the target group and to test modern technological resources. Finally, a sample group, conducted experiments on the material produced in order to assess the compliance with the needs of the target group. This material was then distributed on the national and European level.
