Exhibition, lectures, workshops and launches of new courses are among the initiatives marking the celebratory moment
Manaus (AM) – A reference in vocational education in Amazonas, the Technical Education Center (Centec) is completing 14 years this September and has prepared a special program to celebrate the date. Exhibitions, lectures, workshops and launches of new courses are among the initiatives that mark the celebratory moment.
The program begins this Tuesday (19), with an exhibition of photos, paintings, banners and video telling the school’s history over these 14 years. The exhibition will be available to the public in the Centec auditorium, located at Av. Djalma Batista, 646 – São Geraldo neighborhood, Central-South Zone of Manaus.
“The idea is to share with students, teachers and partners a little of everything we experienced during this period: our culture, traditions and innovations that culminated in the professional success of the students we trained”,
says the general director of Centec, Driele Cazumba.
The celebrations will continue at the Centec stand at the North Student Fair, an event that takes place at the Manaus Plaza Shopping Convention Center and in which it has participated since its first edition, in 2010. At the fair, Centec will treat participants with lectures and shows, interactive workshops, distribution of gifts and scholarship draws with 30% and 50% discounts.
“FNE has established itself as an icon of a new way of thinking about education in the North of the country. Centec was in all editions and that’s why we chose it to be part of our celebration”,
argues Driele Cazumba, recognizing the importance of the event for the region’s educational market.
Among the workshops that will be held at the Centec stand are: preparing a winning CV; the power of communication: the art of public speaking; personal marketing; market: trends and professions of the future; vocational orientation; social networks, to boost your career; first aid and applications: to boost your career.
All taught by school teachers and with free access, in the morning and afternoon. In addition, Centec also participates in lecture shows and conversation circles within the Student Fair program.
On September 20th, at 2pm, on the Vozes da FNE stage, there will be a conversation about technical courses in getting your first job, with the participation of Centec’s general director, Driele Cazumba. On September 21st, at 3pm, in the Niké room, professor João Paulo Queiroz will give a show lecture on the topic “I finished my secondary education, what now?”. On September 22nd, at 10:15 am, in the same room, he will address the subject “Open innovation & education: challenges and opportunities”.
The importance of technical training
Centec offers courses in the areas of health, management and business, IT and communication and industrial processes. The courses last from one to two years and are all recognized by the Ministry of Education (MEC). With state-of-the-art laboratory and equipment, in addition to specialized teachers, students receive theoretical and practical training that enables them to work in different market segments.
“Technical training plays a fundamental role in the economic and social development of Brazil, as it represents the most dynamic and efficient possibility for the inclusion of young people in the job market, since the courses are more accessible and less long, having the advantage competitive in absorbing labor in less time, compared to more traditional areas of the market”,
evaluates the CEO of Centec, Eliana Cássia de Souza Pinheiro.
It is no surprise that the school, which already offers 35 courses – including assistants, technicians and post-technical specializations – in face-to-face mode – is launching several courses this month also in flexible and EAD (distance learning) modes.
“The school is increasingly adapting to the needs of students and the market, offering opportunities for more and more people to realize their dream of professional training”,
says the educator.
According to a survey by Fundação Roberto Marinho, Arymax and Itaú Educação e Trabalho, companies increasingly value professionals with technical training. However, Brazil still has a low rate of young people receiving this type of education. According to the latest School Census, of every 100 young Brazilians aged between 18 and 27, 60 complete secondary education and only five have access to technical education. The National Education Plan foresees the creation of 5.2 million vacancies by 2024, but, at the current rate, it will take the country 60 years to reach this goal.
“Technical professional education contributes to the qualification of the workforce, generation of employment and income, technological innovation and sustainable development. Centec seeks to offer its students quality training aligned with market demands”,
