For this reason, the topic “Made in Italy between beauty and technology” is amongst those that will be discussed during the “Job & Orienta” event on the 30th of November at the Veronafiere Auditorium. Other topics to be discussed will be “Fashion chains: between innovation and work (school, business, young people)”, “Solid examples of success -ITS Cosmo, ITS Mita, ITS TAM”, “The alliance of fashion: school and business”. In addition to this, there will be the national award “Healthy alternation in fashion”, that will feature the best Italian schools.

The initiative aims to emphasise that the fashion manufacturing industry needs young people and that in the next few years, 47,000 job opportunities will be created for specialists. This is also the first occasion in which Confindustria Moda has organised an event that is open to the public on the theme of training, hoping to present fashion and its professions to youngsters – aged 13 and 18 (and their families), who will choose a career path when starting high school or post-diploma training, respectively, in the springtime.
The conference will also showcase the new networks that have been established between technical and professional institutes and among the ITS bodies (istituti tecnici superiori or “superior technical institutes”) that offer classes in the field of fashion. All institutes and foundations that offer training for any fashion profession, across all the production sectors, can join these networks.
