“Diritti, non piegati”: UdS campaign on “school-work alternance” in Italy
“Diritti, non piegati”: UdS campaign on “school-work alternance” in Italy
In the framework of the educational reform “La Buona Scuola” (the Good School) implemented by the Italian government in 2015, the so called “school-work alternance” is one of the most innovative and important aspects.

In particular, it consists in compulsory work related experiences for all school students of upper secondary education and vocational education and training (VET) in Italy.
