Knowing how important good technical training is for the future growth of its sector, for the last 10 years Clay Paky has been working with the Ettore Majorana high school in Seriate (BG), the only school in the Bergamo region to belong to the “Innovation Development and Support Laboratory for Technical High School Reorganisation”, awarding scholarships to top students each year.
On this subject, principal Carlo Martelli confirmed: “The levels of excellence achieved by our students are due to the strong tie the school has with local businesses in addition to our teachers and students’ efforts”.
“In fact – continued principal Martelli – for years we have fostered apprenticeships and vocational courses that involve about 250 students and 200 small, medium and large-sized industries operating in the electrical, electronic and computer sectors each year let the school continuously keep up to date with new technologies and the various work and organisational methods implemented in the various companies. This has led to the school’s productive focus on innovation and all that is demonstrated by achieving excellent results on the national level”.
Fabiano Pina, Clay Paky Quality Service manager, who enthusiastically contributes and follows the partnership with the school emphasised how: “Clay Paky is always looking for young and fresh talents to add to its organisation but students need sound basic training to quickly and efficiently enter the working world: for this reason we are proud to keep open relations with more professional and accredited schools, not just in our area”.
To confirm the importance of well-rounded education that also includes “human” aspects, the Ettore Majorana school promotes initiatives with social values and criterias, such as the design of a solar hut to be given to a village in Ethiopia, where there is no electricity, low-maintenance solar-panel first aid, and the participation in “Bergamo Scienza” laboratories.
