The registration period for new courses is now open.

The delegate for Employment, Enterprise and Self-Employment, Amós García Hueso, has presented the diplomas to fifteen students of the Escuela del Mármol de Fines who have completed the training itinerary that has allowed them to acquire a complete preparation in one of the most demanded occupations by companies in the natural stone sector, such as the programming and operation of numerical control machines. This is a speciality which, in Spain, is only taught in the Almeria centre.

The territorial delegate has congratulated the students and teachers of the training centre, making available the resources of the Andalusian Government for their employability and to continue specialising. Amos García thanked “the collaboration of the six companies in which the internships have been carried out, which have helped the students to take on the habits and values of real work and to develop the knowledge acquired, such as Cosentino, Cuéllar Arquitectura del Mármol, Encimeras Emilio Moreno, Luxstone Spain, Natural Stone Tino and Arte Stone Selection”.

García Hueso highlighted the value of this training and pointed out that “90% of the students start working in companies in the sector on Monday, which shows the great demand that exists”. “The School is currently working to train the unemployed and ensure that companies in the Almanzora region are more competitive with better qualified professionals, seeking to meet their needs, achieving greater competitiveness and creating quality employment,” said the territorial delegate.

The training itinerary has ended with the culmination of work experience in companies linked to the speciality of programming and handling of numerical control machines. It began last October 2022 and has meant that 15 students (5 women and 10 men) have been trained in a total of 615 teaching hours, which have also included training in the handling of loads and work orientation for students.

The itinerary is made up of a training programme in programming and handling of numerical control machines for the stone industry and derivatives of level 2 qualification, with 520 teaching hours. The modules on handling loads with forklift trucks (50 hours) and handling loads with overhead cranes and hoists (30 hours), which lead to partial accreditation of professionalism, have also been taught. The module on labour market insertion and job search techniques completes the itinerary with 15 hours of duration.

In this edition, the School requested that the students of this training speciality, once completed, could carry out a 125-hour work experience period in companies. This has meant that a collaboration agreement with companies for the development of internships not linked to the Certificates of Professionalism can be incorporated into the programmes. These internships are carried out on a voluntary basis by the students and are aimed at completing their training and promoting their employability.

New training itineraries

On the other hand, the deadline has opened for applications to participate in two new training itineraries that will allow 30 unemployed people to acquire a complete preparation in crafts, catering, prevention of occupational hazards, digital skills for entrepreneurship and operation and maintenance of mobile machinery in outdoor activities.

The students are entitled to receive the grants and aid established for unemployed people participating in Vocational Training for Employment training actions for transport, meals, accommodation and reconciliation with the care of children under six years of age or dependent family members, and grants for assistance to people with disabilities and certain groups of unemployed people established by the SAE and that require a differentiated action to facilitate their qualification or requalification to enable their participation in specific programmes.
