THE CENTRE D'IDIOMES WILL OFFER SUBSIDIZED COURSES TO MORE THAN HALT A THOUSAND WORKERS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF VALENCIA SCIENCE PARK
The Centre d'Idiomes of the University of Valencia has signed a collaboration agreement with the Fundació Parc Científic de la Universitat de València (FPCUV) aimed at language training, the translation and correction of texts, as well as the assessment of linguistics skills. Thanks to this agreement, the Centre d'Idiomes offers to the FPCUV staff and its family members in the first degree, as well as to the companies housed in the business area of the Scientific Park of the University of Valencia (PCUV), a 10% discount on the price in general, specific and intensive courses.
During this year more than a thousand people will benefit from this collaboration agreement that offers English and Spanish courses, among others, to all members of the FPCUV or any of the companies hosted in the PCUV business area who are interested in improving their oral and written skills in other languages (English, Spanish, Catalan, German, French and Italian).
This agreement also allows interested personnel, belonging to the FPCUV or to any of the more than 90 companies that make up the business area of the Science Park, to have access to other services offered by the Centre d'Idiomes such as the language skills certification, through the Foreign Language Knowledge Assessment Tests (PACLE), as well as translation and proofreading of texts for companies. In the case of this service, the Fundació Parc Científic Universitat de València will have the same conditions as the University of Valencia itself has when using this service.
The courses offered by the Centre d'Idiomes are part of the subsidized training promoted by the State Foundation for Employment Training (FUNDAE), that is, on a monthly basis, employees and companies deposit a certain amount in Social Security under the concept of training. The amount contributed can be recovered and, thus, the company can use these Social Security credits to improve the skills and knowledge of the employees, so that no entity or employee has to pay an extra amount to make use of this benefit.
In this sense, the Centre d'Idiomes is a training center that allows improving the linguistic skills of business people, the workforce and professionals that allow them to adapt to the new labor market that is constantly changing. Likewise, it should be noted that the Centre d'Idiomes is a public center that aims to provide a language teaching service to all groups belonging to the University, including first-degree relatives of its workers. However, it also offers its services to all those people who, although outside the institution, want to learn a language using a specialized, professional and quality formula.
For its part, the Fundació del Parc Científic de la Universitat de València is a public Foundation whose foundational purposes, among others, are to promote technological development, knowledge transfer and industrial innovation, as well as the creation of an environment privileged to promote innovation activities and technology and knowledge transfer.
Both entities are now launching this collaboration agreement with objectives directly linked to multilingualism and internationalization that is promoted by the Centre d'Idiomes.
