The Balearic government offers those who successfully complete the course a report accrediting their ambition to integrate, and instruction is tailored to help individuals who are preparing for the CCSE citizenship test. Encouraging local immigrants to take part, department chief Rafael Ramírez trumpeted the course as a double boost to participants, helping them integrate in society and stay on the right side of administrative paperwork”.

Public health imperatives mean class size will go from 15 to 12, and spaces will be awarded by order of enrolment. Individuals interested in signing up should inquire at the social welfare office during regular office hours, 9.00am to 2.00pm. A valid ID (temporary residence card or passport) is required for registration.

The course will be conducted over 20 hours in two weekly sessions, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4.30 to 7.00pm, and will be held in the large classroom of the Escola d’Adults.

Instructor Dolores Fernández Tamargo will cover topics including Spain’s constitutional values, human rights and civil liberties, the Balearic Statute of Autonomy, the European Union and gender equality, among others.
