YEP MED: A third round of training in port logistics and international trade for Italian students

This month the third round of the vocational training in port logistics and international trade will take place in Civitavecchia (Italy) as part of the YEP MED. The course will begin on the 26th of January and will finish mid-February.

The training consists of three courses designed to organically introduce students to the world of port operations and international trade. Around 50 students from the Istituto Tecnico Superiore MO.ST and ITS Fondazione Caboto will begin the first course - Port Logistics Community online training - on the 26th of January 2023. This shorter course aims to:

  • Provide first-year students of International Trade and those studying Transport and Logistics at training centres in the Civitavecchia area with first-hand knowledge of the Port of Civitavecchia, its infrastructures, logistics equipment and operations.
  • To allow companies in the sector, through the associations, to make known the characteristics of their activity and the professional profiles they need to develop appropriately.
  • To encourage exchanges between training centres and companies.
  • Motivate companies to hire students in dual-training.

Once completed, the students will then advance to the second part of the training which focuses on international trade and operations.

The approach will use the Simulated Practice Enterprises methodology - a didactic strategy of “Learning by doing” -  and will aim to:

  • Promote the simultaneous and integrated development of functional competencies of organisational management (social, human and business) based on a methodological - didactic simulation device that allows for, within the framework of formal education, contextualized and experiential knowledge.
  • Stimulate the responsible and autonomous development of the student body to become fluent in problem solving and decision-making in the event of unforeseen circumstances, incidents and conflicts produced by the dynamics of a company and its interactions with customers and suppliers.
  • Develop a system that stays on top of current market developments and operations and adapts its contents to them, ensuring a seamless connection of the teaching-learning model with the local industry trends.
  • Contribute to the vocational guidance of students and the employability of graduates through role-playing tests and specific tasks typical of the world of work.

This second and third part of the training will be done in conjunction with centres from Barcelona (Spain), Beirut (Lebanon) and Tunis (Tunisia), therewith further enhancing the international experience of the students.
