Florencia (Caquetá), October 21, 2021. – Twenty-six people deprived of liberty (PPL) in the Las Heliconias Penitentiary Center in this city were trained and certified by SENA as technicians in the Manufacture of Modular and Contemporary Furniture. The training action allows SENA to contribute to the re-socialization of the internal population of this region of the country.
“Overall, the academic performance was outstanding, and we highlighted their great commitment and their desire to learn; this knowledge prepares them for the future when they can enjoy their freedom”. Said Danny López Segura, director of the Entity in Caquetá, who attended the certification event held at the prison facilities.
With comprehensive training, SENA reaches the country’s prisons, where in addition to technical knowledge, it accompanies the PPL apprentices in their process of re-socialization and job expectations when they return home.
"Today's graduates developed various practical experiences to demonstrate their abilities and skills in Caquetá."
In the development of the pedagogical process carried out, to a large extent, during the pandemic, the apprentices were guided by the instructor Oscar Martínez. They made the first approach to the practice. Then, they used printed learning guides delivered to them where they found detailed instructions for the scale building of different types of modular furniture.
About the process carried out, Luis Alejandro Rojas certified PPL, assured: “Mastering a trade is very important, and in SENA, we learned by doing, so when we recover our freedom, we hope to put into practice everything we have learned, and this woodwork art looks quite profitable.”
The new technicians carried out their productive stage in the prison workshops, equipped with the necessary elements to bring the population closer to the knowledge and practice of making wood products. In this same penitentiary center, a new training in the woodwork area has started. In addition, through actions of institutional articulation, it is planned to advance new processes of titled and complimentary training for those deprived of liberty and for the prison staff.
