Certificates of professionalism for unemployed people

At the Center Jovent each year we develop several courses for people aged 16 to 64 aimed at obtaining certificates of professionalism. These certificates certify the set of professional competencies that enable the development of an identifiable work activity in the production system. They are official and valid throughout the national territory and are issued by the SEPE and the Servei de l’Ocupació de les Illes Balears (SOIB) in our autonomous community.

The certificates of professionalism are made up of two or more theoretical-practical modules that are taught in person and a module of non-work practices that is carried out in companies. In order to obtain the aforementioned certificate, it is necessary to have passed all the modules that constitute it, including the practical module. In all training, a comprehensive education is intended that promotes job performance and development as a person.

The Center Jovent is approved by the SOIB to issue 22 certificates of professionalism.

Within the SOIB call for unemployed, the Center Jovent offers training for unemployed people from 16 to 64 years old.

The training is theoretical-practical, with a very high percentage of experimentation on real work and with a progressivity in the degree of difficulty that makes the assimilation of all the contents accessible.

Study and work material

Prepared by professionals from the Center Jovent in collaboration with the UIB, it has been adapted to the needs of the students (progressive and easy to understand) and to the requirements of each certificate of professionalism. In most training courses, some content is worked with multimedia tools, for this reason students are provided with tablets that allow them to access videos, simulations, concept maps, etc.

Business practice

They are the last module of any certificate of professionalism. They allow the approach to the world of work and work on content that has been seen throughout the training process. They can also be a source of employment contracts. Once the professional internship has started, Jovent makes periodic visits to the companies to monitor them.

When selecting an internship company for students, we look for the company that best suits the profile of each person, within the stock of more than 300 companies that we have. The labor inserters of the entity prepare non-labor practices in advance with the company, the training staff of the Center Jovent and with the young person
