Parami School leavers to learn trade skills
A short trades course funded by UnionAID was recently run for teachers, their husbands and two students to learn the use of tools and materials, welding, carpentry, furniture design and construction, electrical engineering and wiring, and workplace health and safety. Tables and chairs were made for the school during the training. The tutor, Joseph Gonzalez, a unionist and retired engineer, has been working with the FTUB for several years, and supervised the building of the Occupational Training Centre complex of buildings. Once the school year is over, the trainees will run a ten day training for a group of school leavers.
