The mayor of Calvià, Alfonso Rodríguez Badal, and the regional minister for Economic Model, Tourism and Employment, Iago Negueruela, have held a working meeting this morning in the Town Hall to plan joint actions between both administrations. In this sense, the basic lines of a local Employment Plan in Calvià have been laid for the next 4 years, sustaining the effort of the active employment policy lines opened in the last legislature and opening other new lines, especially in training matters.
Guidelines (integrated programmes for young people, two biennial projects); training lines (an average of three annual mixed programmes); training associated with itineraries; training for vulnerable groups and training for unemployed people, were carried out during the last legislature. Regarding economic promotion, there were 3 AODL (Local Employment and Development Agents), two for active employment policies and one for economic promotion. The IFOC (Training and Employment Institute of Calvià) has 4 training centres approved by the SOIB: Palmanova, Santa Ponça, Son Ferrer and Es Generador.
