What is Programme Leonardo?

Where you can go
In Leonardo da Vinci the widening is already a given fact, therefore you can go to many more countries besides the Countries that are members of the European Union.

Who can take part in it
People who live in Italy can participate; Italian citizens who live in a different European Country have to apply to the national Agency of the Country in which they reside (so long as this Country joins the Programme).

3 kinds of training are scheduled:
  • Are you attending a school or a training course for beginners?
    Leonardo da Vinci gives you the opportunity to enrich the grooming you are pursuing in Italy thanks to a job training abroad, that you can carry out either at a school, a Training Institute or a firm. This experience, developed in accordance with your teachers, can last, depending on your level of training, from a minimum of three weeeks to a maximum of nine months.
  • Have you just hold a diploma, have you just graduated or are you a young worker?
    If you finished studying and you're loooking for a job, with Leonardo da Vinci you can achieve your first working experience going to a firm abroad; if on the contrary you are already working you can improve your professional skills becoming a part of a working reality of a different Europen country for some months (minimum two, maximum twelve).
  • Are you a university student?
    If you matriculated or you are attending high school you will have the opportunity to work, for a period included from three to twelve months, in a firm of a different European Country putting your knowledge into practice.
