BSE implements another Skills4Jobs initiative in the region, with the aim of preparing new executives who will choose Industry for their career development. The implementation of this action in collaboration with the SBS in Central Greece is particularly important, as it concerns a Region where some of the country’s largest industries are active. We wish the participants the best of luck and a successful career in the industry.”
THE Director General of SVSE, Mr. Nikolaos Kampolis states: “We are launching the “Skills4Jobs for Electricians-Automation Engineers in Central Greece” initiative in collaboration with SEV. Through our communication with the young men and women, candidates, we realized their desire to enrich their technical knowledge and create channels for their professional rehabilitation in the Greek industry. The program comes to listen to the needs, on the one hand, of young people, on the other hand of the member businesses of our Association, which guarantees the organization of other such actions to align employment needs with the technical training of the country’s workforce. Helper in this project is the Ioannis S. Latsis Nonprofit Foundation, to which we are deeply grateful.”
THE Mr Haris Kyriazis, Chairman of the Board of Directors of IVEPE-SEV states: “IBEPE-SEB is a non-profit organization that is the arm of BSE in the field of continuing professional training. It mainly focuses on offering training programs and corresponding certifications that are not available from other providers to the extent that the market needs them. In this context, the present Skills4Jobs model initiative is designed to pave the way for a more comprehensive coverage of the real and pressing needs of industry and other sectors that currently suffer from a lack of adequately qualified technical personnel. Its success will essentially contribute to the removal of one of the obstacles to the development of the production potential in our country.”
