ONE in three students signed up for courses this year at El Campello’s adult education school are foreigners.
The municipality’s EPA Permanent School of Students now has more than 440 adults registered for the 23 groups this year, of which 145 are non-Spanish residents.
The students are studying subjects including literacy, IT and English, Spanish and Valencian as a foreign language.
The council stressed the course programmes are aimed at covering the training needs of local adults, “in a society in constant change and increasingly more demanding”, and are planned, managed and evaluated in terms of employment and social well-being policies.
Also, taking into account many students have jobs, there are classes from 9am to 10pm.
Course registration remains open until January 31 as the facilities can cater to 981 students in total.
