Kapellen, BE
Organized by CVO Vitant

There is a lack on technical skilled staff in the region of Antwerp and the port of Antwerp. We will train everyone who is interested/motivated and willing to work as a mechanic/electromechanic (vocational training, level 3 – end secondary school). In adult education we will

  • upscale the people already working in the sector, if necessary offer them specializations;
  • orient/reorient (unemployed) adults, youngsters, all willing and motivated to work in the sector;
  • pay special attention/care to people of allochthonous origin.

We will provide an adjusted curriculum, tailored to the learner (start with intake: needing basic skills, specializations, learning guidance, learning on the work floor, in need of qualification of secondary education, during daytime and/or in evenings).

We will not only pay attention to technical skills, but also to soft skills and work attitudes.

We work together with companies, sectors (Agoria, Volta – sectors of electricity and mechanics), labour market regulators, secondary schools, etc. for promotion, curriculum adjustement, apprenticeship, etc.
