How do we achieve all this? By working in five fields of action:
Comprehensive career guidance from primary school to job placement,
Work-related learning programmes and training for business and school tutors
Partnerships between schools and businesses
Inclusion and training of young NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training)
Start-ups and youth entrepreneurship
What structure can guarantee the effectiveness of StartNet?
the regional network
the technical committee of experts in the field
the steering committee
the forum of regional, national and international institutional partners
the backbone office team of the Goethe-Institut based in Rome, Trani and Brussels
How StartNet Italy works
Synergy and impact
Partners of the regional network bring in their know-how and experiences and develop together projects to achieve a positive collective impact on the education-to-work transition in Apulia and Basilicata.
Projects and capacity building
StartNet Italy develops project where at least three partners committed to the network must participate. Partner share monthly meetings, exchange programmes and workshops with Italian and European experts on specific issues (Knowledge Camp, Events).
Monitoring and Evaluation
StartNet bases its projects on feasibility studies, comprehensive analysis of regional data and the experience of our strategic partners. The monitoring of our activities allows us to assess their impact and improve our actions.
Sharing our experience
StartNet Italy’s experience in Apulia and Basilicata will become a guideline manual for other networks and organisations working on improving transition from education to work. It will be published in 2020 and presented in an international conference.
