Global Education Coalition
A new model
A new initiative by UNESCO’s Global Skills Academy (GSA) will provide more than 100,000 young people across Peru with access to training in key employability skills thanks to a collaboration between Fundación Telefónica, a partner of the GSA, and SENATI.
As part of the two-year partnership signed in August, SENATI — an education and professional training institution in Latin America and a member of UNESCO’s UNEVOC Network — will implement Fundación Telefónica’s Conecta Empleo courses in its 54 educational campuses in Peru.
The Conecta Empleo programme allows young people to access no cost and certified online training to improve their digital skills and transition into the labour market. Participating students as well as SENATI instructors will now be able to access courses in web analytics, digital marketing, web design, and programming.
"Our main mission is to provide quality education and offer the necessary tools to our students for their professional development,” said SENATI’s National Director, Gustavo Alva Gustavson. “The signing of this partnership allows our young people to complement their professional training”.
