- Fundación Iberdrola España, together with Save the Children, closes this first edition with a positive impact.
- 58% of the young people enrolled in the program have completed their training.
This morning, Fundación Iberdrola España held the closing ceremony and presentation of diplomas for the 1st edition of the Inspira Program at the Centro Espacio Creación Joven in Illescas.
The Inspira Program is a social and labor insertion program aimed at young people between 16 and 30 years at risk of social exclusion and vulnerability. One of the most important objectives of the program has been to contribute to the incorporation of this group into the labor market, reinforcing their initial academic and complementary training and motivating both young people and their families to redirect themselves towards theoretical and practical training in the energy sector, a sector that is currently in continuous growth and has a high demand for work.
The presentation of diplomas was attended by the Mayor of Illescas, Jose Manuel Tofiño; the director of the Save the Children Center, Ismael El Mimeh; the director of the Iberdrola Spain Foundation, Ramón Castresana and some of the teachers who participated in the program.
In his speech, Jose Manuel Tofiño, the mayor of Illescas, stressed that “today we can see here young people who have been able to train themselves with the help of teachers to achieve a goal, continue their training and enter the labor market”, highlighting the work of the teachers in adapting to this program.
For his part, Ramón Castresana, the director of Fundación Iberdrola España, adds that “At present, everything related to the Green Economy sector is in great demand and has a 100% employability rate”. He also expresses the foundation’s interest in future inclusive training programs promoted by the Regional Ministry of Castilla – La Mancha.
Regarding the program’s results, this first edition of the Inspira Program has been very well received, since of the 19 candidates who started, 11 have managed to complete the training. In addition, 1 one of them has found a job in a photovoltaic panel technical and maintenance company, and another 6 will soon begin training in the electricity and reforestation sector.
