Deadline extended for youth activity leader accreditation

The Formentera Office of Entrepreneurship is pleased to report that islanders aged 16 to 29 now have until 15 November to apply to participate in the ten-person training programme for youth activity leaders. Participants will receive professional accreditation to lead educational leisure activities for children and youth, part of "Activity leaders and A2-level English", an initiative to help youth gain employment and training.

Eligible under-30s must be registered as unemployed with the Balearic Job-seekers' Service (SOIB). The course starts 25 November and lasts six months. Theory-based classes are held in the morning and practical classes in the afternoon. Participants will receive a monthly stipend of €900. The deadline on submissions was extended due to lack of applicants. Consell de Formentera President and Councillor of Entrepreneurship Ana Juan encouraged jobless youth to apply, insisting the training would mean "many employment opportunities. Like at the Consell's summer camp programmes, for example".

Aspiring candidates must be registered with the National Youth Guarantee System and must complete their application on the SOIB website by 15 November. The training is subsidised by the training and employment division of the SOIB as part of the service's Certificate of Professionalism programme.

The coming days will find the Formentera Office of Tourism (Conselleria de Turisme/CT) taking part in the “Tourism Innovation Summit”, a travel expo where representatives of the tourism sector gather in Sevilla from 10 to 12 November to chart the course of tourism in Spain and discuss what roles innovation, technology and sustainability will play in it.

In one round-table talk in which Formentera will participate, experts will consider how competitiveness can be a distinguishing feature with respect to competition. CT head Carlos Bernús said local reps would discuss the case of Formentera and the island's approach to smart tourism. "We will talk about the Data Observatory and how the information we collect can be leveraged to guide decisions and craft strategies in tourism and governance", he added, insisting the approach "sets us apart from other destinations".

Formentera will also detail cutting-edge conservation initiatives like the formentera.eco scheme to regulate vehicles on local roads, the island's ban on plastic bags, efforts to promote sustainable mobility, Save Posidonia Project and more. "This expo is about sharing our experiences and building the backbone of a joint strategy on competitiveness and sustainability", concluded Bernús.
