SENATI is a system in Peru through which students learn from their third semester within companies, under real working conditions. This model was recognized by the European Union (EU) as a success case.
The EU-LAC and Eurosocial Foundation, a regional program of technical cooperation of the European Union to promote social cohesion in Latin America, held an event last April to announce the recognition made to SENATI.
“This event was attended by representatives of labor ministries, national training institutes, business organizations, trade unions and civil society in Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as international organizations”, the SENATI website informed.
Eleven other cases from Latin America were chosen along with SENATI for their successful models of learning by doing.
“SENATI’s academic manager, Jorge Chávez Escobar, was in charge of exposing in detail the Dual Training system of this program, and show the results of the institution, as 9 out of 10 graduates work in the first six months of having completed their studies and that 89% have found jobs related to what they studied”, the website explained.
