The group receives training in free time activities and will develop the practical part in the historical heritage spaces, such as the Tossal de la Cala
Participants of the 'T'Avalem' program stimulate the exhibition 'Romans against Romans' in the schools of Benidorm
The project has European funds and will train 10 young people under 30 for a year
The 10 people under the age of 30 participating in the 'T'Avalem' employment program have started the first practical training with the revitalization of the exhibition 'Romans against Romans. Sertorio and the civil wars in the southeast of Hispania', which until the beginning of June will visit Benidorm's Early Childhood and Primary Schools on an itinerant basis.
The Councilor for Historical Heritage, Ana Pellicer, explained that “with these dynamic activities we improve the experience of students who can enjoy this exhibition in their schools centre for a week. First, through the exhibition, they approach the historical period of the Sertorian Wars and discover what was the role of the fort in Tossal in La Cala; and later, with the activities proposed by the participants of the ‘T’Avalem’ program, they put themselves in a Roman soldier shoes and learn more about that time and how they lived.”
Pellicer thanked "the collaboration and predisposition of educational centres to host this exhibition, which comes from the University Institute of Archaeological Research and Historical Heritage (INAPH) of the University of Alicante, and also to facilitate these revitalization activities".
These revitalization activities began last week at the CEIP La Cala and will continue this week at Miguel Hernández school, to which the exhibition has moved these days. In successive weeks, it will reach the rest of the centres in Benidorm.
For her part, the councillor of Employment and Local Development, Mónica Gómez, recalled that "the 'T'Avalem' program, which combines theoretical and practical training, is being developed in the field of revitalization, management and coordination of activities of free time, and hence throughout the year the participants will carry out the practical part in the spaces of the historical and cultural heritage of our city”. "At the moment -she added- we are working hand in hand with educational centres and in a few weeks it is also planned that the group will carry out activities in Tossal de la Cala".
Goméz has underlined that these activities with educational centres "combine perfectly with the scope of action of the 'T'Avalem' program since the participants are trained in 'Dynamization of educational free time activities for children and young people' (code SSCB0209 ) and in 'Direction and coordination of educational and youth free time activities'. At the end of the program, "participating students who pass the training will receive the corresponding certificate of professionalism, thus improving their employability and expanding their knowledge in this field".
For the development of the 'T'Avalem' programme, the City Council has obtained, through LABORA, a subsidy of just over 240,000 euros from the European Social Fund, which finances the hiring of the participants and the teaching team that takes care of their training.
