The department’s Councillor, Carmen Diaz, explained the cooking course is one of several initiatives designed to reach around 90 people under 30, the cooking workshop itself has room for 15 people.
This course will take place in the kitchen of Edificio Colores and will teach 805 hours of theoretical classes and 100 hours of practical classes, as well as offering cross training with other subjects and modules of English.
The course will begin in November and is open to those aged 16 to 29 who are registered in the National Youth Guarantee System.
