Disadvantaged women awarded certificates to promote their new skills

In the Belgian city of Charleroi, 20 women have been awarded certificates for their new skills as nursery-school assistants, home-help and family-support workers. They have all graduated from training courses given by the Public Centre for Social Action (CPAS) in the city.

With ESF support, the CPAS targets people without work or qualifications who are at risk of social exclusion, and gives them the guidance, training and qualifications they need to start the journey back into working life.
