“Region of Italy”: More than 10,000 expert technicians will be trained

More than 10,000 expert technical figures to be trained and placed in the job market. This is demonstrated by research conducted by the ELIS Consortium’s project “Distretto Italia” (Region of Italy) Study Center, which was introduced under the chairmanship of Autostrade per l’Italia and saw the participation of 29 large companies. . The identified need is concentrated in the Telecommunications, Construction, Energy and utilities, Metalworking and ICT sectors. First of all, the casualties are fiber optic installers and splicers, site managers, technicians and software programmers, and electrical installers. There are more than 5,000 positions to be filled at the 12 major companies that participated in the initial needs analysis.

A further 4,800 open positions are registered in the relevant sectors. The founding companies of “Distretto Italia” are Autostrade per l’Italia, BNL BNP Paribas, Cdp, Enel, Eni, Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane, Poste Italiane, Open Fiber, FNM Group and Trenord and Bain & Company. In total, the 29 companies participating in the project have around 400,000 employees in Italy. The study is the first step of the program that gathers the needs of specialized technical figures, then initiates a series of orientation and training activities in cooperation with universities and higher technical institutes. “We develop the skills and planning capabilities of the future,” says Roberto Tomasi, CEO of Autostrade per l’Italia, President of the Elis era, to respond to the needs of the market and educate the youngest. Thanks to this study, we mapped the demand and laid the foundations for creating a large pool that we can use with the goal of networking in synergy with the education world. Aspi, as the project leader, provides useful data to set up a new example to get started. Building a model that will generate jobs for related industries means building tomorrow’s skills today. As the industrial world is closely linked to the region, it should be a reference point in schools to introduce young people to new and old jobs. A system based on the dialogue between companies, institutions, schools and universities in order to create a structural project that faces today’s problems and produces solutions for tomorrow”. Skill map. and the islands are followed by the center with 6% and the south with 4%.

The needs of the “Italy Region” in detail. The study shows that the most requested profile is an operator profile responsible for laying fiber optic cables, representing 35% of open positions today. More specifically, in the Telecommunications industry (TLC), this figure represents about 85% of the profiles sought. The site manager profile is the most preferred profile with 761 open positions in the construction sector. In the Energy and Utilities field, about 80% of the profiles sought by companies relate to operations technicians and line operators. For Mechanics, Electronics, Mechatronics and Metallurgy, 70% of open positions are related to related industries and claims are predominantly registered in Northern Italy. More than half of the sought-after profiles in these sectors are related to software programmer technicians and consultants in the ICT sector (466 and 224, respectively). In the transport sector, the demand for driver-driver profiles mainly affects the relevant sectors (140 units). In the Sales/Retail industry, most of the required profiles are retail sales assistants (150 units). In the oil, petrochemical, energy and environmental manufacturing sector, demand comes directly from companies on the map and mainly affects Northern Italy (134 units). The same is true for Logistics, with over 75% (116 units) of open positions in Northern Italy. Benefiting from the contributions of the Employment Offices of the “Italy Region”, the Study Center draws attention to the fact that we have witnessed an increase in the inefficiency of the market in the last 15 years. In fact, higher unemployment rates do not correspond to a decrease in open positions. This figure, in line with the industry literature, fully describes the difficulties faced by companies in meeting their personnel needs. Lack of skills has been confirmed as one of the main causes of this phenomenon. In fact, the study highlights a clear correlation between the results of the Invalsi tests and the proportion of unemployed and discouraged people. In fact, the increase in negative test results in various regional contexts of the country corresponds to a higher rate of unemployment and discouragement. A widespread prejudice against hands-on occupations among young people and families also adds to the difficulties in finding specialist technicians. Considering Italy’s second-to-last ratio among European Union countries in terms of graduates aged 25 to 34, aspirations are more focused on high school and university, but are often not crowned with a degree. (27% versus 41% of the European average, source Eurostat).

“Above all, we want to engage in dialogue with young people and families to rediscover the value of these professions,” explains ELIS CEO Pietro Cum – It is the value of knowledge that paves the way for self-realization as professionals. and through work it creates the conditions for building its own project of life. There is no equal vocational occupation for all and no path that necessarily involves the transition from high school to university. Instead, an orientation phase is needed to discover one’s personal project, a training that fits the profiles that companies really need, and a ‘good’ job offer that is proud to be a part of the major transition projects our country is implementing. “. The “Region of Italy”‘s proposal for intervention is divided into three lines of action. The first of the “Craft Schools” to respond to the skills needs of the national production and industrial sector, with training and job placement courses, will soon begin. In addition, it has spread throughout the region in cooperation with schools, universities and companies. A dialogue is ongoing with institutions to activate a network of orientation programmes. Again on the guidance front, an information campaign will be launched for young students and their families, and a training program for guidance counselors working in the school system.
