Fondazione San Giuseppe CFPF C.E.S.T.A. is a non-profit organisation accredited by the Emilia Romagna Region for activities ranging from initial training to higher education aimed at different target groups (young people, adults, unemployed, workers, disabled people, etc.), also in collaboration with a network of public and private organisations in the area. In addition to the initial objective of providing professional training for a qualified job in the labour market, the project was aimed at a comprehensive human, intellectual and moral education. This has been possible thanks to the indepth transformation and operational reconversion that the Centre has been able to carry out in recent years, responding
to the needs expressed by various parties: a solid structure, present in the area for many years and an extremely flexible operational capacity are the Centre's main recognitions. Its aim is the development of the person and his social integration through education, instruction, guidance and vocational training. Moreover, thanks to the characteristics of its work, the training agency in Cesta has also proposed itself as a partner in the implementation of integrated projects in the educational and social field, as well as experimenting with new forms of collaboration between schools, public bodies and associations.
The Comprehensive Institute of Copparo is a public school attended by 1223 pupils in the age group 3-13. The courses are divided into three areas, preschool (3-6), elementary school (6-11), secondary school (11-14). The teachers in service are about 160, the administrative support staff and operational management about 40. The share of staff in service with a stable contract in the institute is 66% for teachers of kindergarten, primary and administrative and operational support while it drops to 48% for teachers of secondary school, qualifying the institute with a high turnover, producing at the same time difficulties on the construction of an identity, and access to intense energy of young teachers in training. The Institute is a point of reference for education in the first cycle for the municipalities of Copparo and Riva del Po, both included in the extraordinary strategy of "Aree Interne" in which we recognize the fragility of infrastructure, on the educational front and with measures to support the criticality of school dropout.
