Promimpresa has a specific expertise in organizing training courses targeting schools and trainers with the aim to provide relevant skills to increase the success rate and the quality of project proposals.
The high-quality of our courses is based on the hands-on experience and accuracy of the team and on a practical and operative approach. experiential learning activities have to be carefully designed and executed. Our methodology is based upon Classroom-based experiential learning, including games, case studies, simulations, role-playing, multimedia materials, group exercises, constant interaction between trainer and trainees and complete involvement of participants, etc.
The course will have a special emphasis on designing experiential learning activity and environment that promote student learning and engagement: from how to plan the activity, how to teach it, to how to evaluate it.
Our Courses are inspired by the European Union’s Erasmus+ KA1 program to provide participants, the best opportunities to travel abroad, receive effective training on the most innovative strategies and best practices in the field of education, exchange your work experience with foreign colleagues, and visit wonderful cities in Italy, in Sicily, Lombardia and Emilia Romagna.The social and cultural dimension of our courses is important. During the training courses period in Italy, we will organize cultural and recreational activities to make the mobility experience, also a local artistic and heritage discovery.
