More than 600 people learned trades at the National University of La Plata

In the School of Trades it is not exclusive to have secondary education.


More than 600 people, many of them without complete studies, learned the trade as an electrician, welder, mechanic and caregiver of the elderly, at the School of Crafts that depends on the National University of La Plata, reported that study house.
“ This University not only offers undergraduate and postgraduate training, but also seeks to provide opportunities to society as a whole with a proposal for alternative and quality formal education that is model in the Argentine university system,” said UNLP President Fernando Tauber.
Tauber led the delivery of graduation certificates with Institutional Vice President Marcos Actis, UNLP's pro-secretary for social policies, Maria Bonicatto, and the director of the School of Trades, Sergio Serrichio, at a ceremony at the Regional Center for University Extension in Berisso, in avenue 60 and 130, from La Plata.
The head of the UNLP also stressed that “UNLP is a factory of opportunities for thousands of men and women who do not access higher education but who find in our alternative training proposals a tool for progress. This School is already a university within the University, it is the flagship of our inclusion model for the development of the region.”
Some 606 students completed the 27 training courses that were taught during the past year. The most demanded courses were assistant in elderly care (75 graduates), care for dependent elderly people (56 graduates), assistant in industrial safety and hygiene (44 diplomas), electrician assembly and installer (40 diplomas), welding (40 graduates) and automotive mechanics (32 graduates).
There were also trades of household electrical assembly, industrial electrical assistant, PC repair, artisanal confectionery, third gasist, assembly of gas installations, tailored clothing, carpentry, furniture assembly, assembly and assembly of rock and plasterboard panels and ceilings, restaurant cuisine, pawn and sport equine varador, home locksmith, institutional cleaning and maintenance of green spaces.
The proposal has as an outgoing feature that applicants are not required prior to completion of primary or secondary education as a condition.
In addition to the diplomas, the graduates also received a toolkit for them to exercise the profession they learned.
