Miguel Motas meets with councilors of the City of Cehegín to analyze the work scenario in this municipality
A total of fifteen unemployed people paid by the SEF are carrying out renovation work in six municipal buildings in Cehegín: the food market, the Archaeological Museum, the sports hall, the Virgen de las Maravillas Day Center, the Adolfo Suárez Cultural Center and the old train station.
These are the participants of a mixed program of employment and training in masonry, which started in April of this year and will last until April 2020.
This project has a grant of 243,000 euros from the SEF, which allows facing the salaries of the 15 participants during the year of this initiative.
The total endowment is completed with a contribution of 30,000 euros from the City Council itself, for a total amount of 273,000 euros that has also allowed the hiring of a project coordinator and a trainer.
The City Council initially requested this project from the SEF to continue with the reform of the supply plaza, although it eventually extended the works to five other municipal facilities in this Northwest town.
Some of the reforms and small masonry work carried out by these unemployed include the placement of doors, paving, renovation of partition walls, the realization of an adapted toilet or the construction of an accessible ramp.
Approximately 70 percent of the planned works have already been completed.
The works pay special attention to the improvement of the accessibility of the different spaces or buildings of municipal ownership, providing them with access ramps for disabled people or accessible toilets.
In the case of the supply market, the adequacy of the ground floor of the building is sought, as well as the facade, roof and the nearby urban environment.
These student-workers (six of them women) participate in the modality for people between 25 and 54 years old and, at the conclusion of this one-year program, they will have the opportunity to obtain a certificate of professionalism from the specialty of 'Auxiliary operations of factory and roof masonry'.
This program seeks that the participants alternate the qualification with the paid work experience in the construction sector.
Through this measure, people registered as unemployed in the SEF learn a trade and obtain training that significantly increases their options to subsequently access the ordinary labor market.
