The International Telematic University UNINETTUNO, jointly with the Vocational Training Agency, "Ass. Sicilia Sviluppo Onlus", implemented a new Technological Pole in CATANIA, in the premises of the Liceo Statale "G. Lombardo Radice" of Catania; (this latter institute, whose mission is to overcome international quality assurance standards, promotes new technologies that are being used as training tools as well as to develop skills allowing learners to move within a wider and multifaceted computer world. Additionally, this is the only school providing IGCSE Cambridge certificates).
The Association, “Sviluppo Sicilia Onlus”, is accredited by the Sicily Region and carries on study, consulting, vocational training, research and survey activities in favor of companies and volunteer associations as well as in several sectors of society to promote the knowledge of Institutions as well as the development and enhancement of production and industrial resources and activities.
Through the implementation of the CATANIA Technological Pole, this agency’s main aim is scientific and technical training: facilitating the access to university learning for young people and acting as a contact point as regards the university career for different typologies of actors showing interest and commitment in this. Actually, the proposing bodies recognized that these principles are essential for any socio-economic development.
The CATANIA Technological Pole is equipped with an innovative structure including an auditorium (of 300 seats with writing desks), an exam room (of about 30 seats), 3 computer labs, inner large courts and a car parking area.
