The Italian Ministry of Education (MIUR) recently published the lists of successful PON projects for the “Alternanza Scuola Lavoro” scheme.
What does that mean?
Following the official announcement, all Italian secondary schools whose projects have been approved will start organizing tenders for their implementation. An important note to be made here is that the projects delivery can be completed over the course of 2 academic years – 2018 and 2019.
What about language courses?
Same logic applies for PON projects submitted under the “Language Learning Experience” action.
We expect MIUR to publish the lists of Italian schools with approved language course projects on its official website. Once the lists have been announced, Italian schools with successful projects will start preparing their tenders.
The tenders are usually published on the schools’ websites, or at least that was the practice in previous editions of the PON program. Italian agencies – the intermediary between Italian schools and international schools within the PON framework – are the ones usually monitoring these activities and answering individual tender requirements with concrete offers.
