"Scuola di Mestieri" (Trade School)

The national project on  vocational training in construction.

Scuola di Mestieri Webuild

Craftsmanship work
the Webuild "Scuola di Mestieri" has launched

The selections for the first edition of the Webuild "Scuola di Mestieri" will start on December 13: a project to train and hire new resources to employ as skilled workers in the Group's Italian construction sites.

If you are a young person who has completed vocational education training (VET) or upper secondary school (e.g., Surveyors, Technical Institutes, Mining Schools) or are an unemployed person who perceives social safety nets *, and you wish to start a career in a construction site, this is the right opportunity for you!

You do not need to have any experience: if you would like to learn a new profession with Webuild, you just need to be available to travel on the Italian territory, and we'll teach you the rest. But how? By offering you a job!
If you pass the selection, you will in fact be hired, immediately, with a one-year apprenticeship contract aimed at subsequent permanent employment.

For the first 4-6 months, you will participate in an intense training course, in a classroom and on site, regarding traditional excavation or mechanized excavation.

There will be theoretical modules to train you on health and safety, preparing you to use the required equipment and machinery, and so much more. And there will be practical training: our construction sites will become actual schools to give you the opportunity to support more experienced colleagues in daily activities, learning from them.
The “Scuola di Mestieri” (Trade School) is the beginning of your career in Webuild, to gradually fill more and more specialized roles.

We are working on a School of Trades to build the specialized skills that are most valuable to us, helping to train a new generation of skilled workers.

Pietro SaliniCEO Webuild

Project Webuild Next-Gen "School of Trades".

Building the Recovery 

The Italian construction sector is forecasting exponential growth, destined to rebalance the slowdown it has experienced in recent years. Thanks to government investment to boost the economy and PNRR funds earmarked for infrastructure, we can get back to thinking big. To make the Italy of the future, however, we must first make the workers of tomorrow, that is, train the new generation of skilled workers by starting in the present, with the Webuild Next-Gen project.

Why a School

Only generational change can meet the skilled labor needs of the coming years, but filling these key roles independently and safely requires targeted skill transfer, in which Webuild has decided to invest. That is why we decided to launch the Webuild Next-Gen Project, a series of concrete initiatives for training and employment, of young and old. As a company, but also as a part of Sistema Italia, we aim to make the country able to attract again "fleeing" talents and stimulate those on the ground.

How the Group's School of Crafts Project works

How the Group's School of Crafts Project works

The course has a duration of 4-6 months and is divided into three phases:

  • theoretical lectures on health and safety;
  • lessons with simulators on the use of equipment and machinery;
  • on-the-job training: practical training in the field, joined by experienced colleagues who will directly transfer their skills and know-how.

Webuild School of Trades: the long-term goals.

  • Value corporate know-how, that is, standardize and transfer the wealth of technical skills, strengthening the culture of safety, to increase quality in the implementation of works;
  • Strengthen Public-Private Collaboration: get an alliance going now that can train new resources and re-skill unemployed resources;
  • Amplify the social impact of the initiative through training to create new skilled employment with solid prospects for continuity and careers.
