This Graduate Course seeks to update teachers’ knowledge and skills with contributions from the latest technological and scientific developments, and it also offers participants training in different strategies so that they can critically review and successfully face the challenges posed by 21st Century classrooms. The project has been made possible thanks to the concerted efforts of the Educational Council of the province of Santa Cruz, the provincial Education Ministry, and Pan American Energy.
Currently, 50 teachers from Comodoro Rivadavia are attending the course and will join the 73 teachers who have already completed the graduate program.
With these initiatives we aim to promote social and labor market inclusion, to improve the employability of the adult population and diversify employment opportunities for the inhabitants at Piquirenda Estación, Yacuy, Acambuco, Chorrito and Campamento Vespucio (Salta).
By providing training courses in IT, English and different skilled trades, in 2015 we reached 261 beneficiaries, with 936 training hours delivered.
