| Students specialize to work in the gardening sector and in caring for dependent people | The Employment Minister met with the mayor of Ceutí to address the employment situation in the municipality and study new ways to boost the labor market A total of 33 unemployed people from Ceutí, belonging to various groups, are currently being trained in two of the sectors that are creating employment in the municipality, such as gardening and caring for dependent people, with two programs from the Ministry of Employment, Research and Universities, through the Regional Employment and Training Service (SEF), which subsidizes the City Council with 247,930 euros. The Minister of Employment, Research and Universities, Miguel Motas, has addressed today the development of these programs and other actions that stimulate the labor market of the municipality, together with the general director of the SEF, Marisa López Aragón, and the mayor of Ceutí, Juan Felipe Cano. "The collaboration of the regional government with the municipalities in the development of active employment policies is allowing us to work in a double sense: in improving the employment options of people who do not have a job, providing free and quality training, and on the other, in promoting the local productive fabric, which needs qualified workers to continue growing, "said Motas. Specifically, the City Council of Ceutí is developing, with the support of the Community, a mixed program of employment and training that, through the alternation of theory and paid work, will encourage 15 unemployed people to improve their qualifications to work in the Maintenance of parks and gardens. The students, who began their training on July 1, will combine theoretical classes with paid practices for nine months, and have been hired by the Ceutí City Council.
All of them will collaborate with the municipal service in the maintenance and cleaning of the town's green spaces such as tree pruning. On the other hand, the remaining 18 students are being trained in caring for dependent people with a SEF course that started last September.
This training action also includes an 80-hour module that will allow its participants to put into practice everything they have learned in class in occupational centers, day stay centers and early care centers. Once their training is completed, the students of these two programs will obtain a certificate of professionalism, valid throughout the national territory, which will accredit their skills in the professional branch in which they have been trained.
