FOR is aimed at vocational training professionals working in corporations and organizations (private, public, non-profit), counselling societies, educational centres, schools, universities or freelance. The journal stems from the experience of AIF, Italy's oldest (it was created in 1975) and largest (it has more than 2400 associates) association of vocational training professionals. Articles offer readers a thorough overview of issues related to learning processes and teaching activities: Research, field studies, trends; Needs analysis and training opportunities; Planning of training events; Scheduling and coordinating of training programmes; Class management; Results assessment; Quality assessment systems planning; Learning process analysis; Creation, capitalization, dissemination and knowledge transfer of learning systems.

In addition, FOR can help educational science students and young professionals improve their teaching and self-training skills.
