Apro Formazione feels the need of bringing out the full potential of every training area by giving each sector a personalized logo that accompanies their identity along with the main logo.
25% of the volume of APRO activities is produced by APRO IMPRESA through the education and training services provided to big business to small artisans, in business projects with one or more companies.
Apro Impresa aims in identifying the financing channels for local companies by offering a service in demand management, the training plan and associated reporting.
The brand identifies two closely interrelated sub transversal areas.
The area “foreign languages” includes English, German, French, Spanish, Russian and Chinese.
In particular for the English language, APRO has undertaken, in accordance with regional providers of Cambridge, the path to become a preparation and certification center, by applying the Cambridge methodology.
Apro International has distinguished itself as a driving force at local level within the European mobility of students and trainees interested in the formative experiences abroad.

APRO WORK SERVICES
APRO SAL is the logo that identifies the activities (with permission of both regional and national agencies) as a private placement office aimed at intermediating between the demand and supply of labor; it is specialized in relocation paths, starting internships as well as finding regional or national funding for companies as a benefit.
APRO SAL also operates in various projects designed to intervene in the cases of "marginality and precariousness" of the workplace, with its specialized Psychologists and Counsellors.
APRO FASHION identifies the formative historic area, founded by Don Gianolio (reflecting the training needs in the 50s).
After a period of redefinition of its identity, APRO Fashion continues in the assistance of filling out application forms for skilled people, able to design and implement either an item of clothing or an accessory, using 2D digital modeling tools which will soon be followed by 3D modeling tools. This was also possible thanks to the investment in digital equipment for the personalization of decorations and logos on clothing, t-shirts, sweatshirts and innovative machines for small sized digital printing on fabric.
All this is in complete enhancement of the "handcrafted know-how", both in a digital and creative way, and in the manual production of items and fashion accessories, under the label "ATELIER CASTELGHERLONE".
APRO BEAUTY & WELLNESS

There are many training programs in schools for children or aimed at upgrading or specialization of youth who have already graduated from other technical schools, undergraduates or recent graduates in technical disciplines. These latter attend courses in 3D designer paths, industrial automation, and specialization of machines which numerically control machine tools. They are then introduced into the work field after a successful internship in a company.
For all areas, there is an ongoing investment plan in new advanced equipment such as new lathes and CNC milling machines, 3D printers, textile printers and continuous updating of the machinery in automation and robotics.
In all areas, teachers are constantly updating: it is a relationship intensified by the leading suppliers of innovative services in the industry and the most qualified professionals in various fields.
APRO START HUB
APRO START HUB is the synthesis between the concept of "start-up" and "hub" as it is not a newness in the history of Apro formazione: imagine how many companies before artisan activities (of which then some become industries), have taken the first steps starting from these areas and from these laboratories. They started after encouragement from the founder Don Gianolio, as well as recently for simple context vocation: there are dozens of cases in mechanical, industrial automation, catering, hairdressers...
We then remember that with these companies there is always a bond of gratitude: not only emotional, but bi-directional in terms of renovation, knowledge exchange, addresses, testimonies and training programs at all levels.
It is for this reason that the entire technical and didactic staff as well as the entire CDA, who have facilitated and encouraged relations, have intensified many relationships with varying subjects with the aims of giving stability and an identity to training in a vocational school. It also aims at dealing with each technical and professional sector thus becoming an open HUB of a territorial feeling which is very much felt and highlighted for having anticipated new paths and innovations.
