Málaga's Hospitality School 'La Cónsula' Shines Through The Pandemic.
MÁLAGA’S Hospitality School ‘La Cónsula’ Helping To Train Young Andalucíans During The Pandemic
The ‘La Cónsula’ School of Hospitality in Málaga city, is showing itself as the perfect example of the rebirth of training to meet the expectations and hopes of thousands of young Andalucíans during the pandemic, claimed Juanma Moreno, the President of the Junta de Andalucía, during a visit to the facility today, Sunday 18.
Mr Moreno visited the school (watch the video below), in the company of the Mayor of Malaga, Francisco de la Torres, plus other ministers from the Junta, and stressed that he believes the school is a great opportunity for employment, and that it will contribute to reinforcing the Andalucía brand by providing excellence to the tourism and catering industry, saying the school has turned training around with a new, more transparent Vocational Training model.
He commented, “Today is a great day because La Cónsula and everything it means in terms of quality, employment, and the Andalucía brand is underway, and with more validity, vitality, and enthusiasm than ever”.
‘La Cónsula’ has of course been affected by the pandemic, but the Andalucían government has done its best to ensure that all students can finish their training, by including online training, virtual one-to-one classes, and a rescheduling of the 2022 calendar.
He also voiced his regret that previous governments in Andalucía had failed the sector, causing closures, defaults, and uncertainties in the Board’s Hospitality Schools, but said that “All this has remained in the past due to the tenacity, capacity, and commitment of a team that has been able to seek light where there were shadows and to solve the problems of recent years in the Employment Training Courses”.
It should be noted that during the last two years in Andalucía, five of the region’s Training Schools have been recognized as National Reference Centres, as reported by juntadeandalucia.es.
