(ANSA) – PISA, 26 OCT – Companies in the province of Pisa are looking for professionals with technical, scientific and professional specializations to be included in their workforce but they struggle to find them. This is why the Pisan Industrial Union and the Pisa Chamber of Commerce are promoting, for the fourth consecutive year, the “School-future-work” project to enhance technical and professional institutes by offering all middle schools in the province of Pisa a campaign of orientation.
An information brochure and video will be provided on the respective Youtube channels with the testimonies of young people who have attended technical and professional institutes and who are already involved in the world of work.
“The health emergency has led to a strong acceleration of digital transformation – explained Patrizia Alma Pacini, president of the Pisan Industrial Union, illustrating the project today -, with effects on the organization of work.
All this will lead in the near future to a greater need for people trained with specific and transversal digital and technical skills. In relation to the labor market, to date, there is still no full correspondence between the supply and demand of these professional figures “. For Alberto Susini, head of external relations at the Pisa Chamber of Commerce,” the exit from lower secondary school represents a moment to become aware of one’s attitudes and make school and professional choices that best suit one’s characteristics. The forecasts for the period 2021-2025 show a complex supply-demand picture “.” Faced with a national demand of 250-275 thousand graduates per year, the training system produces 310 thousand – he added -. However, for various fields of study there is a need higher than the offer, in particular for the administrative-marketing, construction, transport-logistics and agro-food sectors. It is therefore important to promote an information and guidance path dedicated to young people and their families “. (ANSA).
