The project has been approved by the Canarian Employment Service and will be funded by the European Social Fund.
The new employment workshop is called “Alternative Marketing” and will be held in the municipality of San Bartolomé and will last for twelve months. The workshop consists of two separate training courses, one specializing in ‘Renewable Energy and the other in ‘Tourism Marketing’.
It is a public training and employment programme aimed specifically at unemployed people aged 25 or over, you must be registered as unemployed at the Canario Employment Service and be registered in that particular municipality. It is hoped the programme will provide participants with a series of professional and personal skills that will help them improve their chances of employment, both in the field of marketing and communication.
There are 12 places available on each course. Applicants interested in applying for a place on the ‘Renewable Energy’ course will have to provide proof they completed Compulsory Secondary Education (ESO) while high school is mandatory for those interested in applying for a place on the ‘Tourism Marketing’ course.
In addition to the participating students, the workshop will feature five other people who will make up the teaching staff and administrative team. A total of 29 people will benefit from this project which has a budget of €578,022, €50,000 of which will be provided by the Cabildo.
