The acronym ITS stands for Technical Institute, a post high school degree that gives students a solid education and training, in order to shape “highly specialized technicians” who will be able to operate in specific areas considered strategic for the development of the Country.
Born in 2008, ITS schools are an effective alternative to university for students holding a high school diploma. There are six different Technological Areas and several classes for each of them for the students to attend, depending on their personal ambitions and on the Country’s production needs. Each Area has specific domains and national professional profiles for the students to referred to in order to widen the range of educational offer, while maintaining strong consistency between the training content itself and the national production chain.
To sum up:
- ITS are totally free;
- ITS foster a better employability (integration) of their students (in)to the labour market;
- ITS meet the demands of companies which are constantly looking for highly specialized technicians, with a solid internship experience.
