Teachers’ Opinion
The project helps to improve work and quality of the professional education system. Modular programs form a flexible, high-quality educational content, which includes regulations, the professional standard/ qualification requirements, skills and knowledge of particular profession and public education standard. This knowledge is essential for teachers in order to be able to organize their work correctly and use the most relevant study materials in teaching process. However this seems more corresponding and helpful for the school management level, not the teachers or students.
Students’ Opinion
It is good that the information about professional qualification exams and all the standards, requirements is available for everyone, also for students. The negative aspect is that not everybody knows about it. It should be promoted more and explained less complex.

Dissemination Seminar in Florence

31 October 2015 The seminar has been held in ITIS “A. Meucci” one of the schools involved within Goerudio project activities. Its main aim was to promote the results of the project toward a broad sample of stakeholders even overcrossing the number of people directly involved in the production of project outcomes. This purpose has been totally achieved especially thanks to the participation of students and teachers coming from different schools or from other classes instead of those ones directly involved within the project activities.
