Different periods and venues can be freely chosen by the sending organisation, upon request and after checking our availability.

Based on formal, informal and non-formal education, our methodology will try to stimulate active participation, pro-activity, responsibility and sharing of all participants involved. In this way, we aim to build a diverse and stimulating environment for reflecting, working and learning. It has a horizontal and practical approach and will make use of the following tools:
• face-to-face lessons
• team-building and team-working
• best practice case-studies
• multimedia and web resources
• project based working
• practical laboratory
• brainstorming and focus-group
• role-play
• self and group assessment and evaluation.

Since this course has several features in common with other courses (as you can check on this platform), sometimes participants will be all together, sometimes with some other participants, sometimes alone, depending on the specific programme. In this way we also intend to foster the cooperation and exchange between them all, as well as the knowledge of other school education systems and practices.

After the confirmation and before starting, we check the previous knowledge and experience of participants, as well as their specific needs related to the topics of our training course. In addition, we will provide some documents and learning contents of our “Library of Methods & Tools” in order to start getting involved in topics and subjects that will be taught.

All participants are expected to maintain access and communication with the rest of their colleagues as well as with the trainer and participate in useful discussions either through the virtual classroom platform and via e-mail. Trainers and company will also be available for any further questions for a period of 5 months after the end of the course, either through e-mail, virtual classroom platform, individual Skype calls, telephone or WhatsApp. By means of all these tools, we aim to get an effective follow-up, to stimulate peer networking, to keep in touch and to share opinions, experiences and practices for unlimited time.

The entire training catalogue is supported by an international team of experts in project management of European projects. The coordinator and main trainer of the event is Alessandro Gariano: founder and manager of Enjoy Italy, active in education and training as well as local development and destination management; trainer of teachers and for educational organisations (110+ in-services trainings provided, 900+ trainees); youth trainer in the context of non-formal education; project designer, project manager and expert of EU Programmes.

The courses were ok, lots of culture and Italian cuisine. The organisation was poor as one person is running the whole process. We had problems with invoices. He organized a transfer from the airport and did not issue the receipt, after a whole week of reminders he sent a strange receipt with signature with was cut from somewhere and stuck to this receipt....we asked for normal receipt...finally ...nothing. We couldn't get a refund from our organisation (90 euro one way transfer from the airport). As well he is trying to play tricks with hotel prices. We paid our accomodation and the next day he said that the owner of the hotel raised the price....(later we found out that it is his hotel...) Courses we not bad, but lots of headache with money.

Dear Alina, we read your comment but we are actually surprised, because: - we sent you a proper invoice, which is totally valid for us. You said that it is not valid and afterwards you disappeared: we believed that you had solved this problem with your NA. If not, why didn’t you ask us again?! And you can still do. - the hotel is not owned nor by me nor by any member of the company: what you said is totally false! By the way, thanks for the positive words spent about our training course. We remain at your disposal. Thanks and regards Alessandro Gariano

We enjoyed the course very much. Italian history, tradition, nature, cuisinne... a good mixture. The place is beautiful. ´It´s worth going. The only downside is that there were few teachers of our same course. But, even so, Alessandro got a good working environment among the different participants we attended.

I enjoyed this course so much that I decided to come back with my family. We had the opportunity to take a comfy flat this organisation offered us, with a nice garden and ortchard (delicious vegs). My kids learnt so much and were very excited. Thanks again, Enjoy Italy!

I felt that during the week I took part in first hand experiences in Italian history and culture. I felt it was wonderful to meet so many genuine people and see them in daily work or in an educational situation. This experience topped up with Alessandro's brilliant historical knowledge and rich cultural engagement made it to a very insightful and rewarding week!
