Margarita Alonso, professor at University Camilo José Cela, was interviewed live on Mediodía en Cope Más, a radio show for Cope, where she has explained what the Expert University Course in Social and Job Skills Training which, since the 2018/19 academic year, teaches young people with learning disabilities.
During the interview, Margarita, who serves as a tutor for this course, extolled these students’ desire to learn and how they want to improve their social skills to join the job market. “They are exemplary. They have not missed a single class, they are responsible, respectful, they have helped each other – without being asked to – they grow personally, and we do as well”, he said.
The UCJC Expert University Course in Social and Job Skills Training, according to the professor, “seeks to promote the development, both personally and professionally, of these young people, and the range of subjects is very wide. It is a scheme designed for them to enjoy and learn and develop the maximum potential of each person.” The degree is complemented with activities from university life, and its students can participate in activities such as La Colmena, Live Your University, Clubs and Sports Activities, among others.
Margarita also stressed that several of the students who graduated at the end of last year had been given the opportunity to start their professional career: “Last year we were given the opportunity by important companies such as LaLiga, the Madrid Amusement Park, Ikea, Acción Contra el Hambre or the SEK Group, and it was a very good experience at all levels.”
