sintesi italiano

La particolarità del progetto proposto consiste nel fatto di non essere solamente un corso di lingua inglese, ma un percorso IFTS (Istruzione e Formazione Tecnica Superiore) in Arredamento/Interior and Urban Design concepito come “strumento intelligente” per dare una dimensione europea alla professione di Designer. I percorsi IFTS, istituiti dalla legge 144/99, sono percorsi formativi post-secondari non universitari e non in continuità con la scuola superiore, che hanno l’obiettivo di formare figure professionali che rispondano alla domanda del mondo del lavoro pubblico e privato, con particolare riguardo al sistema dei servizi, degli Enti locali e dei settori produttivi interessati da innovazioni tecnologiche e dalla internazionalizzazione dei mercati. La motivazione centrale che ha spinto a proporre percorsi IFTS nel settore del Design, è la continua emigrazione culturale dei giovani calabresi. Data l’impossibilità di svolgere nella propria Regione studi relativi al Design, questi sono costretti, e non liberi, a frequentarli in altre regioni italiane o nord-europee con evidente depauperamento di “futuri lavoratori della conoscenza” locali. Il percorso IFTS in Design mira a creare un vivaio di giovani progettisti che, forti di una cultura mediterranea, sappiano rispondere in modo progettuale alle esigenze della società del terzo millennio, affrontando gli aspetti culturali, produttivi, di marketing e di comunicazione che insieme costituiscono il sistema dell’Italian Style.


sintesi inglese

The special feature of this project is that it is not merely an English language course but also an IFTS (Higher Technical Education and Training) course in Furnishing/Interior and Urban Design conceived of as an “intelligent tool” to give a European dimension to the profession of Designer. It aims to create a professional figure who will meet the needs of the public and private work sectors, in particular those of the service industry, the local authorities and the productive sectors concerned with technological innovation and internationalization of the markets. The continual cultural emigration of young people from Calabria region is the moving force behind the institution of this type of training aimed at producing designers who will be able to meet modern market requirements but with the backing of their Mediterranean culture. The use of English is therefore necessary as a technical language, a specialist code offering access to the global work market.
