The Adeje department of economic development under councillor Raquel Rodríguez Alonso, has already completed a number of training programmes this year under the PFAE (alternative employment training) umbrella. 80 people from Adeje have benefited with courses for the 16-29 age group and others for the over 30s.
“These courses last 11 months and are assisted with funding from the Canarian Employment Service (SCE).  Each course aims to give participants a professional qualification and help increase employment opportunities with qualification certificates in various specialities,” commented the councillor.
She explained that there are 20 people involved in each course, 5 of them are monitors/trainers, and 15 are students/workers.  Participants have been taking courses in digital technologies, in lifesaving qualifications (beach and pool), in aspects of the service and hostelry industry, and in professional industrial cleaning. 
“The department of employment is continuing to work on the new professional courses and accreditations with the intention of amplifying the training options in other specialised work areas, with the overall aim of reducing the number of unemployed people in the borough”.
