Agreement on work-related training

The Ministry of Education, University and Research and Snam today signed an Agreement on "Alternanza Scuola Lavoro" (work-related training) initiatives launched this year by the company, a European leader in the construction and integrated management of natural gas infrastructure.

The signature took place in Rome, at the Ministry's headquarters, in the presence of Maria Assunta Palermo, Director General for School Ordinances and the Evaluation of the National Education System of Ministry, and Paola Boromei, Executive Vice President of Human Resources & Organization of Snam.

"This protocol seals in an agreement many projects already carried out by the schools in collaboration with Snam and completes the training offer of the our work-related training programme, with qualified courses in the field of infrastructure related to energy sources. It is a further piece with which the Ministry promotes the transition from school to work", explained Director Palermo.

"The signing of this Agreement is the culmination of an exciting project, which has allowed Snam to get in touch with hundreds of young students from all over Italy, offering them new tools for orientation and knowledge. The alternation between school and work is part of a broader People strategy, supporting the strategic plan of Snam with training and nurturing talents through our new Snam Institute and about 50 initiatives in the human resources field", Paola Boromei commented.

Snam work-related training program, called "Young Energy", involves about 600 students from the last three years of 9 high schools in 6 regions of Italy. In each of the schools Snam brought the experiences of its employees, the testimonies of the managers and the contribution of the designated trainers. The meetings were followed by a training course on topics such as health, safety, environment and quality, sustainability and the industry 4.0 and visits in various company offices. Training apprenticeships were activated for about 60 students from the last two yeards of the schools, aimed at developing both personal and professional skills.

Snam's project contributes to the objectives of the Ministry in terms of open school and reduction of the mismatch between job demand and supply. "Young Energy" puts students in contact with a leading company in Italy and allows Snam to attract young talents, offering them a real opportunity for personal and professional growth.
