Mijas council is offering tourism courses for the unemployed

Tourism training

THE course, for which registration is open until October 27, will offer 15 free places for those who are unemployed and living in the municipality.

Laura Moreno, Councillor for Development, explained, “we continue to promote training in Mijas aimed at improving integration into the labour market for the more than 6,000 unemployed people in the area.  The council is committed to giving out residents the resources we have available.”  She added, it will “join others already offered in gardening and construction.”

The 60-hour course will be followed by voluntary practice exercises for participants who wish to extend their training.  Councillor Moreno explained, “in a municipality like ours where the tourism sector is one of the largest generators of employment, we believe it very important to make these types of courses available to residents to help get them into work.” She added the practice exercises “are also important in adding to a CV.”

Eduardo Santiago, the course’s tutor, explained, “we are looking for dynamic people who have some knowledge of languages. During the course they will learn to perform various different types of animation.  It is important to note tourist animators can perform not only in hotels but also in hostels, shopping malls and at other type of events.”

The course joins more than 20 other schemes promoted by Mijas Council over the last months to increase employment.  According to Moreno, “we will continue working on this scheme, offering residents the resources that will help them and trying to promote employment.”

Applications can be made at Mijas Town Hall or in the town halls of Las Lagunas and La Cala.  For more information, email promo.desa@mijas.es or call 951 26 02 83.
