\ The Employment Service has increased the economic endowment, which will allow more than 600 people in the Balearic Islands to benefit from the programme.
\ The programme, co-financed with European funds, will allow students to combine training with professional practice.
The Consell de Govern, at the proposal of the Regional Ministry of Economic Model, Tourism and Employment, has authorised an investment of 12 million euros for the SOIB Employment and Training 2022 programme, which, for the third time, has been unified with two lines of aid that will benefit more than 600 people in the Balearic Islands.
The call for applications includes two lines of aid. The first, endowed with 6 million, will be aimed at unemployed young people over 16 and under 30 years of age, registered in the National Youth Guarantee System, and the second line, also with 6 million, is aimed at unemployed people aged 30 and over.
This initiative is financed with funds from the Sectoral Conference and maybe co-financed by the European Union, through the ESF+, for the period 2021-2027.
The aim of the programme is to subsidise dual training projects, which include a set of mixed training and employment actions and initiatives that will enable the acquisition of the professional competencies and skills necessary for the labour market integration of the student-worker contracted. For this reason, they are structured in specific training and professional practice in a real work context.
Projects may be presented by the autonomous bodies of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands, local entities and their bodies, consortiums and foundations of the public, state, autonomous and local sectors, as well as associations, foundations and other non-profit entities of the third sector of social action. Grants will be awarded on a competitive basis.
The hiring of the student-worker, who will work on projects of general or social interest, can be carried out until 15 December of this year and will last between 6 and 12 months.
From 2016 to 2021, more than 2,000 people have already benefited from this dual training programme.
