The IGMA3 project develops a guidance methodology for the labour integration of young people at risk. The program is complemented by a training course that enables professionals and workers in the field of youth and employment for the effective implementation of this methodology in their organisations.

The individualized guidance of the young person in his/her personal and professional development, the involvement and participation of the employers in the pathway to employment and the networking of all the organisations involved in the subject are some of the topics addressed in the program. We shared all theses issues with professionals from different organizations of Cantabria in a pilot session held on March 16 at the premises of the Social and Cultural Action Center CASYC in Santander.

DOCUMENTA participates in a European project to analyze the tourism sector in 28 countries in the area

ImagenCSTourThe association DOCUMENTA (European Institute of Studies for Training and Development) has been involved for almost half a year in the Blueprint project to analyze the tourism sector in the 28 countries of the area, an initiative that, as explained the president of the aforementioned association, Javier Farto, "is an achievement in itself since it is only possible to take part of it by invitation, something similar to a kind of competition restricted to approved entities, which have therefore to meet a series of demanding requirements that support their excellence". DOCUMENTA thus becomes part of the European consortium that is responsible for this project together with other entities that have also been selected in the same way, such as SCOPE (INTRASOFT International) of Brussels, its promoter or the partners White Research and Valeu Consulting , also from Brussels. Finally, the Institute of Tourism and Culture, of the University of Malta.
