The Italian Central Office, situated at the vocational training centre Istituto Don Calabria in Ferrara, started its activity in October 1994, supported by Fundaciò Inform from Spain and Emilia-Romagna Region, the first Italian Region which experimented with the simulation methodology. SIMULIMPRESA is a training project oriented at the qualification in the administrating, tourism and industrial field using the simulation method. The program promotes the training through the experience acquired in a real environment (working hours, discipline, real working situations, tasks development).
Today in Italy the Practice Enterprise concept is present in different areas (administration, tourism and industrial fields) and turned to different users' typologies: young people, unemployed, workers who must up-date their own vocational skills, unemployed women reintegrating into the labour market and students from secondary schools.
