The ERIAS project has two partners in Italy – both of them based in Milan. FORMAPER is a special company founded by the Chamber of Commerce of Milan, Monza-Brianza and Lodi, which aims to contribute to the spread of business culture and the development of entrepreneurship in these 3 provinces. FISASCAT CISL of Milan is a trade union federation that represents workers in the trade, tourism and services sectors.
As part of their contribution to the ERIAS project, FORMAPER and FISASCAT CISL are working together to provide training for refugees and beneficiaries of humanitarian protection schemes (not including asylum seekers). The first training programme started on 18 November and will continue until 20 December 2019.
The training programme includes 32 hours of advanced Italian language classes, as well as classes in: Preparing your CV, Safety in the workplace, Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, Rights and duties of workers and employers. The participants will also learn important information about working in the catering, mechanics and electronics sectors, as well as entrepreneurship, finance and micro-economics.
After completing the training programme, starting in January 2020 the trainees will be given opportunities to gain practical work experience by undertaking 6-month internships in local companies. During this time, they will also benefit from regular individual coaching sessions.
