The socio-economic context of the area served by the Centre is bound uo mainly, though not exclusively, with the municipalities surrounding Fossana and Savigliano. The area's activities are mainly divided into agricultural, and local manufacturing and crafts. In these latter two there is constant need for updated approaches. The creation of a mechnaics hub in the area confirms the local employment growth situation of manufacturing development and at the same time indicates the need for the high professionalism associated with it.
Service and hi-tech industries are increasing significantly and also have increased employment requirements, especially in the service sector. Then there is the consolidation of the agricultural food production chain which has developed a network of local manufacturing requiring qualified workers. There are also commercial towns involved in distribution on a small or larger scale, needing sometimes less-qualified workers.
Add to this the growth in interest in the historical, cultural and gastronomic aspects typical of the region. Historical and cultural sites, shows, food exhibits are all playing an increasing role for local tourism, and bring with them new professional prospects.
The Centre has been in existence since 1979 and by developing the attention it gives to its service of the local area over the years it has developed and broadened its education and guidance in response to the needs emerging. These experiences have led to constant re-assessment of the curricula, skills and structures.
There are numerous accords with local bodies and with educational and schooling groups in the area. There is collaboration with local employment organisations and with specific industrial and local industry firms both in terms of education and employment possibilities. Families are consulted, along with the students, guidance organisations and social welfare agencies. The intention is to offer a qualified and effective preparation which satisfies the expectations of both the recipient and the local area.
The Centre offers:
The beneficiaries are: young people, adults, women, professionals, business people, migrants, military, etc.
Some of the outstanding programs are European programs involving international exchange with times spent in Germany, Spain, Poland and Slovakia, aimed at special situations (businessmen, professionals and the Italian Army), participation in international projects like Peer Review (Progetto Leonardo da Vinci).
