15 May 2013

The Brazilian National Service for Industrial Training (Senai) is to support Cape Verde in defining a model of self-sustainable financing for job and professional training centres, Minister Janira Hopffer Almada said Tuesday in Praia.

The Minister for Youth, Employment and Development of Human Resources also said that the support that will be provided was being analysed by a delegation of Senai-Br, which has been in Cape Verde since Monday on a one-week working visit.

“The mission is intended to support Cape Verde in drawing up a model for financing job and professional training centre, for technical schools and also for universities that offer professional courses,” she said.

According to Hopffer Almada, Brazil has “one of the most innovative and perfect systems in the world,” in this area and Cape Verde wants to develop a model based on Brazil’s system and experience, adapted to the reality and the specifics of the archipelago.

The trip to Cape Verde by the mission from Senai, which has 50 technology centres in Brazil focused on several industrial sectors, is part of a programmed funded by Luxembourg to support an integrated education, training and employment policy. (macauhub)
