The Employment Workshops are back in Albox with 725,000 euros for training.

The workshops will train 28 unemployed people from the municipality in the areas of administrative management or electricity.

After almost a decade without employment workshops, the new government team manages to approve the training classrooms and access to these projects in just a few months.

This December, the Albox Town Council has received two resolutions from the Regional Delegation of Employment, Enterprise and Self-Employment, to carry out two Employment Workshops for unemployed people in the municipality. The first of these, delivered last week by the Delegate of Employment in Almeria, Amós García, to the Mayoress María del Mar Alfonso, will be used to train 14 local residents as Electricians. And yesterday, Wednesday, Luisa Granero, councillor for employment at the Albojense town hall, collected the resolution of the Employment Workshop to train 14 unemployed people in the municipality as Administrative.

For the first of the projects, ‘Assembly and maintenance of low voltage electrical installations’, the Junta de Andalucía has granted aid amounting to 367,097 euros and for the second training project, ‘Administrative management activities’, the Junta has awarded the Albox Town Council 358,683 euros to finance all the costs.

Both projects come almost a decade after the last employment workshop was held in the municipality and after several months of intense work by the Albox Town Council to meet all the requirements for these training initiatives in alternation with internships to be carried out.

One of the main stumbling blocks has been the homologation of the training classrooms of both workshops. The classroom where the Administrative Management Employment Workshop will be held has been accredited on the ground floor of the Municipal Library. The Electricity Workshop will be held in a converted building next to the Fire Station.

“It has been a few months of hard work. When we arrived, everything was still to be done, but we were convinced that our unemployed deserve the best opportunities, and that is why we have gone all out. Two employment workshops will train unemployed people in the municipality, both in theory and in practice, and they will also receive a salary for a year, which I am sure will be a great relief for their families,” said the mayoress of Albox, María del Mar Alfonso.

The participants in both employment and training programmes will receive a salary grant from the first day and during the 12 months of the projects. These grants are in line with the wages established by the collective agreement or, at least, with the Minimum Interprofessional Wage.

Both grants cover one hundred percent of the cost of the two employment projects to be carried out throughout 2024. The Albox Town Council, therefore, will not have to advance or provide its own funds to carry them out as they will be financed entirely by the regional administration.

“We are talking about more than 725,000 euros that we have been awarded by the Junta de Andalucía to train and improve the employability of unemployed people in our town. We did not win the Christmas lottery here, but we will start 2024 with projects that will greatly improve the lives of our neighbours, and for us this is a great joy,” acknowledges the mayoress, after receiving the aid this week from the Delegation of Employment.
