The Ministry of Employment, Business and Trade of the Government of Andalusia has launched the call for workshop schools and employment workshops with a budget of 49 million euros for Andalusia and 3,4 million for the province of Almería.

This has been transferred to mayors, councilors and the general director of Professional Training for Employment of the Junta de Andalucía, Manuel Jesus Garcia, accompanied by the territorial delegate of Economy, Innovation, Science and Employment of the Junta de Andalucía, Miguel Ángel Tortosa, during a meeting.

As it indicated by the Board in a note, the deadline for local government and its agencies can apply for these grants ranging from the past 15 January to 30 April.

Among the new features is the processing on a competitive basis with a set of objective criteria for evaluating projects, which guarantees equal access to these funds, and a single payment so that the beneficiary entities receive an advance of a 25 percent of the grant at the time of the granting of the same, a 35 percent once credited the beginning of the training activity, and 40 percent remaining after full justification.

Also, the new standard improves the process of selection of students and personnel conducting training activities, and establishes the justification of the grant, in the case of local entities, by its auditor certificate.

To attend these grants, entities must be duly accredited to deliver the shares, so they must have certified facilities for the development of training programs. Also, the training must be contained in the file of specialties Vocational Training for Employment, which enables obtaining a professional certificate valid throughout the EU.

For his part, Tortosa recalled that these projects are carried out in collaboration with municipalities, “as already happens with young @ Emple plans Emple @ 30 +, in which the Board is investing, with co-funding from the European Social Fund, 20,14 million in Almería to generate 2.653 jobs for young and unemployed over 30 years old”.
