CIFP A FARIXA
Dentro das actividades polo 25N, tivemos a oportunidade de contar con Wahira Shankar, activista polos dereitos da muller e periodista afgana que se atopa refuxiada no noso país. Contounos de primeira man, cal é a situación das mulleres en Afganistán dende a entrada do réxime Talibán, e como os seus dereitos e liberdades quedaron totalmente anulados polo feito de ser mulleres.
Creáronse talleres para desenvolver habilidades persoais, sociais e profesionais “vocational-soft skills”. O programa incluíu formacións orientadas ao alumnado dos nosos ciclos, con sesións prácticas como “A maxia de conectar co cliente” impartida por Eloy Xesto, “Falar en público” con Fernando Rodríguez, “Liderazgo” con Emilio Cabezas e “Intelixencia emocional” con José Antonio Sarmiento . . //. . máis información
From November 21 to November 25, CIFP A Farixa students celebrated Entrepreneurship Week. The programme included lots of activities, which had specifically been chosen by the different departments so that all students could make the most of this great opportunity to learn from the experienced professionals who were in charge of them.
On Monday and Tuesday, Tourism students attended two workshops; one on Technology Skills and the other one on How to Improve Public Speaking. On Wednesday, we also had a busy morning packed with different talks.
Ready for our second talk today! Begoña Garrido from Xeitura told us about how to start up your own business and not die in the attempt. In the 2010s, Begoña, who is an archaeologist, realised that she had a way with children; she had a knack for dealing with them. So, she started to think about how she could combine that skill she did not know she had, and her passion, archaeology. And she found the way because that is exactly what she does in Xeitura, the company that she founded, together with three more people, in 2012.
On our first talk, Alejandro Olmedo Díaz, Director of Halcon Viajes Agencies in Ourense, reflected on how the travel agencies sector has had to adjust rapidly to the economic and health crisis we have suffered lately. First of all, it was the economic crisis in 2008. Secondly, the internet revolution and how it has changed the way customers consume. Thirdly, the Covid period, and the following travel restrictions, which turned our world upside down.
