About us and partecipations
Centro di formazione Arti e Mestieri “Virgilio Alterocca” is a training agency accredited by the region of Umbria. It was created through a collaboration between training professionals and personalities from the business world and involved the updating of an old project. The original project, La Scuola di Arti e Mestieri, was founded in Terni in 1909 and was the initiative of a committee chaired by Virgilio Alterocca.
The purpose these days is to offer the community a place for highly professional technical training, that can contribute to the rediscovery of and qualification in ancient crafts and craftsmanship, thereby enabling excellence to blossom and enhancing professionalism whilst withstanding today’s modern and globalised labour market.
Due to the involvement of teachers who are experienced in different disciplines, skilled craftsmen, independent professionals and entrepreneurs, the Centro di Formazione Arti e Mestieri “Virgilio Alterocca”, offers vocational courses, particularly in the sector of arts and crafts. All of our proposals and activities come from a detailed training needs analysis of workers and of businesses, and of a continual monitoring of market trends.
