Are you looking for free technical courses for the next year? Then sign up for one of the vacancies in the technical schools of the state government of ES. Applications will be open until December 29th. In all, 795 places are being made available, in 15 free courses with a certificate of completion, which will be distributed between the State Centers for Technical Education (CEET) Talmo Luiz Silva, located in João Neiva, and Vasco Coutinho, in Vila Velha, in the Upstate.
Among the free courses offered in the state are: Gastronomy, Digital Games Programming and Computer Network. Each of the technical courses lasts up to two years.
The vacancies are aimed at those who have completed regular secondary education in any school system, as well as students from the Youth and Adult Education (EJA) and the State Center for Youth and Adult Education (Ceeja). People who are already in the 3rd year of high school can also apply for the vacancies.
According to Tyago Hoffmann, Secretary of Science, Technology, Innovation, Professional Education and Economic Development of the State (Sectides), the purpose of the free courses is to expand entrepreneurship and generate job vacancies for the population of ES.
In addition, state authorities believe that the best way to reduce social inequality is through education, both basic and professional. Hoffmann says that, with the end of the pandemic, this axis will be increasingly prioritized.
Classes must be held in person. However, if the pandemic worsens again or the student prefers, some activities may be in the EAD format.
To apply, those interested in free technical courses must access the “citizen access” website and register on the platform. Soon after, they must fill out a form that is in the “student selection” tab.
Applicants will be selected based on the highest grades obtained in Mathematics and Portuguese Language subjects in the last year or in the last year of high school attended, for those who have completed their studies longer.
The list of approved free courses will be released next month, on the 5th, at 2 pm. Classes are expected to begin in early February next year.
