The “Dowry” system in Lombardia No LLL course is funded directly by R.L. to educational organizations A virtual dowry is given to the “would be” student who spends it where he/she finds the best offer for him/her Every interested person has to enter a “process” Every person who needs to be supported to find a new job, has to enter a “process”
The “dowry” process Guidance /counselling– first interviews where the basic needs and goals are defined Competence check and evaluation - The “dowry” process finds out what’s missing in order to reach the goals (or getting closer to them) According to his/her need the person can start a coaching experience or start a course
PERSONALIZATION Courses can be either chosen from a very large depository of “traditional Courses” (especially vocational) Or they can be personalized activities (geared to 1 to 3 people). In this case they are considered part of the coaching experience, and they are aimed at supporting the student so that he/she can reach his/her goal No real standards for personalization have been set
