The Role of the Educational Tutor in the Italian VET

Carlo Macale

 

ABSTRACT: 

This paper considers the figure of the educational tutor in the Italian VET system, as a bridging role between the learning processes in the school and in the company and as an educational figure for the student during and at the end of the training pathway. The pedagogical-theoretical method of investigation, in continuity with some data emerging in the literature, highlights how the tutor has not only an instrumental function in the training pathway, but has a strategic and substantial role in the global growth process of the student as a future worker and citizen.
