The Community will launch three new integrated centers of vocational training to promote employability

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Counselor Martínez-Cachá visits the one located in Lorca, one of the four integrated centers of the Region

2,514 students are enrolled in these centers and the enrollment period continues open until November 10

The Minister of Education, Youth and Sports, Adela Martínez-Cachá, visited today the facilities of the Integrated Center for Vocational Training (CIFP) of Lorca, where they teach VET of medium and higher level in the health sector.

Currently, in the Region there are four CIFP, three in Cartagena and one in Lorca, and the Ministry, within the promotion of Vocational Training and in accordance with the Strategy of Vocational Training and Lifelong Learning 2015-2020, "plans to create three new in the next two years ", informed the counselor.

During the visit, he announced that "in 2019 we will have three new integrated centers and we will increase the offer given that they have proven very effective when it comes to training professionals with a high degree of specialization and high employability rates".

In addition to "encouraging the creation of new integrated centers of vocational training, the next course will advance the date of publication of the offer and service letters will be published to facilitate citizens' relationship with the regional administration," he added.

The letters of service are the documents through which the organs, agencies and public entities of the General State Administration inform citizens and users about the services they offer or about the quality commitments in their provision.

The main characteristic of a CIFP is that only professional training is given, from the education system and for the employment of one to several professional families which allows to optimize the material and human resources available and to have a continuity of the lessons from middle grade cycles to a higher degree.

The integrated centers are conceived as a reality at the service of citizens and the productive sector and contribute to the qualification and requalification of people, adapting to their different professional expectations.

The counselor, during her visit to the facilities, indicated that "it is a wise choice to have integrated centers in the Region." In this case, it can be seen how having the health family concentrated in a single center allows all the students to take full advantage of the means".

He also indicated that "as in Cartagena we have centers oriented towards the hospitality industry and tourism or towards computers, administration and commerce, having a pole of teaching from the health family makes Lorca a reference point for students of the Region and of bordering communities interested in pursuing these cycles. "

Data

Regarding the registration data in this center, the occupancy rate of places offered this course is one hundred percent, as it happens in the majority of degrees offered in the CIFP of the Region, although the enrollment period continues open until the November 10

In the integrated centers, there are 2,514 students enrolled, which means more than 10 percent of the students who study vocational training at the intermediate and higher levels in public and private schools.

It should also be noted that these CIFPs, in collaboration with the Employment and Training Service (SEF), provide courses for both unemployed and active workers, which allow them to obtain professional qualifications that will improve their working expectations in the short and medium term.
