A regional business association in Portugal is offering specialised courses to raise skills and qualification

Training in accounting, taxation and marketing, and an advanced course in administrative operations, are just some of the specialised courses on offer from the ‘New Textile Parks - Regional Business Association of Santarém’ in Portugal. The training events take place in working hours in various locations in the Santarém district and are co-financed by the ESF. The initiative is aimed at workers and jobseekers who meet minimum educational requirements. The purpose is to raise the level of qualifications and skills of workers and jobseekers, thus making them more adaptable and raising their employability.
