The 'Incorpora Training Points' are a pioneering training initiative adapted to groups with special difficulties that allows qualified and skilled training to improve employability and for the development of a work activity.
The Training Points want to be a fundamental piece that helps to consolidate people at risk of social exclusion and special difficulties (severe mental disorder and intellectual disability) in the workplace and guarantees profitability for the people inserted.
In the last year, three areas of training have been developed: Basic kitchen operations, Auxiliary warehouse operations and Sales assistant and customer service. According to the satisfaction survey carried out by the teaching bodies to the students, seven out of ten evaluate the training action with the company very positively and consider that the internships have helped them to improve their personal development, regain confidence and find work

The closing of the day was carried out by the president of El Clúster Èxit, Albert Carbonell, and the councilor for Social Rights of Girona City Council, Núria Pi, who also hosted the event.
