The Costa Adeje Tourism Development Centre (CDTCA) hosted the closing ceremony of the project 'Improving Employability in Adeje 2023', run by the Adeje council department of economic development and employment. 29 people were employed as part of the project over a seven month period, and worked around the municipality on improving urban public spaces. 
Councillor Mercedes Vargas Delgado congratulated the workers and the management and teaching team for the success of the project.  She said "this project has given the individuals the opportunity to improve their training and professional skills, increasing their chances of entering the labour market" and reminded them that "the Employment Service is a generator of opportunities and the doors will always be open to help you in their search for employment and professional growth". 
Councillor Alberto Álvarez Jiménez presented the student workers with diplomas recognising the work carried out during the seven months of the project. 
The programme 'Improving Employability Adeje 2023' has two main objectives: on the one hand, to train student workers in key skills and on the other to carry out work experience with the aim of helping them enter the labour market. The target group was the long-term unemployed with 35 individuals taking part. 
During the seven months the team worked in various locations in Adeje, including the Central Park, cleaning and conditioning landscaped public spaces in different parts of the municipality, maintenance and improvement work in municipal facilities, eradication of invasive plants, working with the traffic department and the department of culture and coordination.
