SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 24 Aug. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Cabildo de Tenerife, through the Foundation for Training, Employment and Business Development (Fifede), imparts 3,095 hours of training related to new employment niches through six training courses in which a total of 55 participate people.
Thus, maintenance of wind turbines, repair of electrical and electronic equipment, photovoltaic self-consumption systems and vehicle recharging points, programming of web design, maintenance of electric vehicles and job orientation make up the content of the courses that are currently being carried out and that include, among 400 and 650 training hours.
To them will be added, starting in September, another four thematic courses on organic farming, intercultural mediation, rural tourism and promotion for the effective equality of men and women, which add 1,580 additional hours, collects a note from the Cabildo.
The Minister of Employment, Socioeconomic Development and Foreign Action, Carmen Luz Baso, explains that it is an offer launched for the first time this year to help reactivate the labor market.
“The labor market is constantly evolving, there are many new sectors linked to sustainability, digitization and modernization in which there is a growing demand for specialized professionals,” he says.
For this reason, he indicates, “from the Cabildo we have renewed part of the training offer with a view to adjusting it as much as possible to the new needs and demands of companies, thereby helping to improve people’s employability”.
In parallel, the Fifede Foundation carries out other training actions with which it tries to respond to the training demands of users, who need to have accreditation in certain studies to be able to join the world of work.
In this context, so far this year two courses have been given to obtain driving licenses type C and D, plus the CAP, and a third on handling forklifts and lifting platforms.
In total, more than 360 hours have been taught to a total of 35 people.
With the same objective of improving employability, the Cabildo has developed the Employment Launches project, a job orientation program that seeks to increase the employment possibilities of young people between 18 and 30 years of age from different parts of the island.
Launched in the municipalities of Garachico, La Victoria de Acentejo and Adeje, the project had 69 participants, of whom 29 managed to find employment.
