| The orange training asks to urge the Ministry of Education to comply with what was announced in 2019, for the past year already breaking barriers in access to Vocational Training for people with functional diversity | For years, the families of young people with functional diversity in our Autonomous Community have been requesting the Ministry of Education and Culture to extend the age limit to attend the Special Vocational Training program.
This barrier today stands at 21, leaving young people from this age on in an educational and job placement vacuum.
The modification of this regulation would suppose for these young people the opportunity to study a second complementary professional training program, which would lead them to obtain the title of Basic Professional Training.
And it would mean an improvement in order to favor their insertion in the labor market.
In March 2019, the then education counselor Adela Martinez-Cachá, announced in the media, the removal of the age barrier established at 21 years, both for Special Vocational Training and Adapted.
Furthermore, adding that it would be launched in the 2019-2020 academic year.
After the announcement of the counselor, for the second consecutive year, the age limit is set at 21 years for Vocational Training in Special modality, as contemplated in the Resolution of the Directorate of Educational Evaluation and Vocational Training, which again establishes the Age range to access vocational training, between the ages of 15 and 21, for the 2020/2021 academic year.“At Ciudadanos Yecla, once again, we want to contribute our grain of sand for diversity and the elimination of barriers and limitations to people with functional diversity.
And we ask that from the Yecla City Council, the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Autonomous Community of the Region of Murcia be urged to eliminate the current age limit established at 21 years, in Special Vocational Training ”.
Says Antonio Puche spokesman for Cs.
