Technical Vocational Pole of Fornovo di Taro

The Technical-Vocational Pole of Fornovo di Taro is a structured collaboration between technical and vocational educational establishments, training centres and companies in the region, which has the aim of creating a system of advanced specialized vocational and technological education and training integrated with the productive mechanical engineering sectors, with a specialization in composite materials processing.

The Training Pole of Fornovo di Taro was founded in the industrial environment of the Taro and Ceno valleys in the province of Parma, with its numerous engineering firms specializing in automotive and motorsport working in the fast-growing composite materials technological cluster.

The project brings together educational establishments, industry, training and research centres in a common goal of creating a place in which learning, growing and innovating are possible by bringing together knowledge, know-how and expertise.

The Training Pole headquarters are located in Fornovo di Taro at the premises of the project leader, the “C.E. Gadda” State Institute of Higher Education.

The aim is to create  synergy between industry and those involved in education (Educational Establishments and Vocational Training Centres) sharing human resources, learning spaces, project development

To create places of applied instruction, training and learning: from knowing to knowing how, from the classroom to the laboratory and the workplace

To build a system of  advanced specialized vocational and technological instruction and training, integrated with the productive sectors of the region

To spread the technical-vocational and technological culture  and to build interest in mechanical engineering, with an emphasis on the growing cluster of companies engaged in researching and working with composite materials to simplify the choice of education and make transferring between tracks possible, providing guidance to young people and families, as early as the 1st cycle of education, through the cooperation of the region and industry, including:
