Teaching in Prato: a life changing experience

An official welcome to one of the most successful Monash programs in Prato

In January 2015, the Mayor of Prato, Matteo Biffoni, and the Australian Ambassador to Italy, the Honourable Mike Rann, welcomed to the city of Prato the first group of Monash students from the Faculty of Education before they started their school placements.  This special event was held in the Sala Consiliare at the Comune di Prato​, in the presence of more than one hundred local students and teachers​, who were keen to meet ​our students and start working with them.

The successful experience of the first round of placements is now repeating with the new group of students who arrived on the 2nd February.

Congratulations to these future teachers; their life and career will surely benefit from this precious Italian experience.
