With concerns still lingering about the effects the Covid-19 virus will have on schools and other educational facilities, an area of the Cartagena Council is focusing on online content creation to help employment in the area.

THE Agency for Development and Local Employment (ADLE) is continuing to develop online courses and training to help the industrial sector in Cartagena.
The President of ADLE, Irene Ruiz, explained “ADLE is a very helpful resource when it comes to finding work. Proof of this is that last year 450 people entered the workplace thanks to this agency.”
The creation of virtual classrooms has been top of the priority list for ADLE as a result of Covid-19, with the first edition of the ADLE virtual classroom having already been launched and completed, seeing a total of four training courses and 135 people having participated.
“All participants have been able to train using their mobile device and also have been tutored at all times by teachers. In this sense, courses on Norms and Prevention against Covid-19 have been launched in the hotel industry, Vertical Gardening, Hospital Kitchen and Food and Hygiene for dependent people in social institutions,” stated Irene Ruiz.
The Councillor concluded that “the agency intends to offer training courses in sectors with high employment rates. The objective is to train people so that they have the appropriate qualifications and that this allows them to occupy jobs that are in high demand.”
