The Training Area of Centrocot offers its thirty years of experience by offering highly specialized technical training for the Textile, Clothing, Fashion, Leather, New Materials and Textiles sector for technical use, both nationally and internationally.
Competitive markets and technological innovation require the acquisition of new skills and their continuous updating. The training offer is constantly fed by the research and innovation activity carried out by Centrocot.
Innovation is also reflected in the methods used: experiential, with practical exercises, focused on analysis of concrete cases, with the possibility of accessing courses both in presence and online through the e-learning platform. The platform is intended to be a virtual classroom that, on the one hand, joins the traditional training, offering an environment where participants can continue what they have done in the classroom and maintain
an active confrontation with the teachers, on the other hand it is a new way of transmitting knowledge through distance learning courses, ideal for reaching people who would not be able to participate in the classroom activities.
The training offer is aimed at companies, public and private operators with a proposal in the catalog or customized, based on specific needs felt.
This offer also includes the one specifically addressed to the resources hired with the apprenticeship contract.
As part of ongoing training, Centrocot manages funding opportunities to support training costs, including the Fondimpresa Interprofessional Fund (www.fondimpresa.it) and resources specifically dedicated to courses for apprentices.
Undergraduate and Postgraduate Courses
The aim of the training offer is to provide young people with professional skills and to introduce them to the textile sector. The courses are partly or entirely co-financed by the European Union or the Lombardy Region,
to make the offer accessible to all. In this context, Centrocot has been a member of the ITS COSMO Foundation (www.itscosmo.it) since 2014, which was set up with the aim of training highly specialised technicians and responding to the needs of companies in the sector, facilitating the integration of young people.
The IFTS courses are an example of Centrocot’s funded post-graduate training offer. The courses are annual and aim to train technicians specialized in the textile, leather and new materials supply chain. They have a strong experiential nature as they provide that, in addition to the implementation of an individual work project, 50% of the hours are dedicated to an internship activity at companies in the sector.
