SENA AND ITS INTERNATIONAL ALLIES STRENGTHEN THE QUALITY OF TRAINING
We promote sustainable development, job creation and gender equity in the labor market.
Valeria Delgado SENA Communicator General Directorate
From October 2020 to June 2021, the entity has signed 28 international alliances with different cooperators worldwide, which have promoted a valuable transfer of knowledge, technology, and innovation, strengthening the quality of professional training and other services provided by SENA. More than 5,600 people received training in Colombia thanks to these cooperation projects, 377 beneficiaries of international mobility, and about 1,400 international certifications were registered.
With allies such as FAO, the German Cooperation Agency – GIZ, the Italo-Latin American Institute – IILA, and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), it has carried out training actions in aspects such as circular economy, rural entrepreneurship, food security, management of natural resources, agriculture and sustainable tourism, among others.
"With these strategies, the Entity aims to promote sustainable development, generate green jobs, strengthen the 4.0 Industry, bilingualism, and gender equality in the labor market."
As Adriana Colmenares, SENA Director of Promotion and Corporate Relations puts it: “Strategic alliances were established to strengthen the abilities of instructors and learners to teach different languages. For example, with the Fulbright Commission of the United States, twelve (12) assistants were assigned to teach English in twelve (12) Training Centers in different regions. In addition, we impacted approximately 500 instructors across the country with a virtual English program taught by North Carolina State University.”
Similarly, we have ongoing projects with technological giants such as Siemens, Bosch, Mnemo, Everis, Huawei, and SAP to meet the demands of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. With these leaders in the sector, SENA has modernized its environments, strengthened curricula for training programs, and trained instructors and apprentices in content related to cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, the internet of things, and other 4.0 technologies.
