Agenzia per la Mobilità Internazionale
“The Age.Mob is an organization that supports high schools, universities, public bodies and various organizations that intend to implement international cultural and educational exchange programs for students and to promote international study and work mobility of EU citizens and people from the rest of the world.
Our task is to promote international mobility of students, apprentices, employed and unemployed workers and also entrepreneurs with the purpose of increasing professional and linguistic skills and increasing integration into the global labour market.
Our goals are:
– to offer the opportunity of international mobility
– to plan (in collaboration with other institutions and organizations) a mobility experience for higher professional training and for the entrance into the labour market
– to encourage schools and other institutions to participate in various calls for proposals and projects
– to introduce the European dimension into youth policies and to encourage an attitude of mobility and multicultural awareness in young people
An experience abroad is always an enrichment; especially if this becomes an experience: of life, of work, of culture, of relationships, of fun.
Our common goal is to train our young people giving them the best opportunities, either in terms of “knowing how to do” or in terms of “knowing how to be”, knowing how to be proactive, creative, communicative, collaborative, enthusiastic, or “healthy bearers” of soft skills.
Such an experience is an all-round training and that allows our young people to grow as European citizens and to be able to get the opportunities offered by Europe.

Guarasci” Rogliano (Cs), was born from the merging of three educational institutions Ipsia Marconi of Cosenza, the Liceo Scientifico and the Istituto Tecnico Economico Guarasci of Rogliano (CS) in Calabria in southern Italy, following the sizing plan implemented by the Calabria Region on the basis of Law 15/03/1997, n. 59 .
The final outcome leads to the training of professional figures in different fields (mechanical, electrical, electronic, chemical-biological, economic). The School aims to train young people who have a flexible mentality, knowledge and skills appropriate to the demands of the world of work and are able to interpret the rapid changes and constant variations. In order to improve the quality of the training offer and make the professional skills to be acquired more up-to-date and expendable, the Institute pursues a policy of active collaboration with leading companies in the professionalisation sectors, through alternating school-work paths, reshaping the contents and timing of the learning paths and making them more flexible to the real needs of the labour market.
The students enrolled at IIS Marconi Guarasci Cosenza -LS Ite Rogliano in the School Year 2019/2020 are 730. Those with non-Italian citizenship make up about 5% of the entire school population, distributed in the three plexuses, with a greater presence in the evening course of the vocational school. There are small groups of students who live in family homes, young people of Roma ethnicity, but now sedentary in the city of Cosenza. These students represent an opportunity for the growth of the school.

The Institute of Higher Education “De Filippis – Prestia” was born in the a.s. 2013 – 14 following the school sizing operations implemented by the Calabria Region.
It includes the Professional Institute for Commercial and Social-Sanitary Services and the Professional Institute for Industry, Handicraft and Made in Italy, two schools that, in their respective sectors, have always trained highly professional technicians to be included in the productive activities of the territory.
Both institutes boast glorious traditions which, in the case of “Prestia”, date back to 1886, while “De Filippis” was born in 1960. The two Institutes, attended by students coming from all over the province, have always been characterized by having combined the theoretical study of the disciplines with a significant laboratory activity, combining knowledge and know-how.
The socio-cultural environment of origin of the students is quite heterogeneous. Many students come from a medium or medium-low socio-cultural environment.
Currently, the IIS “De Filippis-Prestia” plays some very important roles in the provincial and regional school context, promoting synergic training opportunities with other educational institutions and with external subjects that can contribute to enrich and qualify the training offer.
IIS De Filippis Prestia has experience in the Erasmus + 2014-2020 programme and in the National Operational Programme (NOP) of Miur, entitled “For School – skills and learning environments” 2014-2020.
