Both institutions are preparing new training opportunities in the pastry and bakery sector with work experience placements and scholarships for students.
The Association of Artisan Entrepreneurs of the Pastry sector of the Community of Madrid (ASEMPAS) and the Madrid Employment Agency have signed a collaboration agreement to stimulate direct job placement of unemployed people through a new training programme in the pastry and bakery sector.
The first course to emerge from this agreement will be created during the next few weeks, will train more than 150 people in 2021 and will be in line with the new health prevention standards. In addition, the learning cycle will include work experience placements and scholarships for students.
The president of the Agency and representative of the Economy, Innovation and Employment Department at Madrid City Council, Miguel Ángel Redondo, explained that “it is a much needed four-year agreement, at a time when 80% of hospitality sector workers have been affected to some extent by the coronavirus crisis”.
