NEFELE aims to model new and innovative teaching methodologies for middle school pre-service teachers who can be useful in supporting career construction and a positive vision of the future for adolescents. Providing them with a space to metaphorically look at and shape.Teachers can act as the scaffolder for the career construction of adolescents. Through teaching, teachers can progressively help pupils to think of themselves as working adults by developing a positive image of the future. In fact, they are called to help individuals to enhance those necessary skills to promote flexibility and adaptability and help adolescents to increase their own personal interests. The middle school is the period that the adolescents start to think and plan their own future, and then make choices concern the whole educational future and then career paths. The NEFELE project will therefore train teachers who can, through their teaching, impact on adolescents, the final users of the project.
