Consell de Formentera staff can apply for professional career status from 3 January

The Formentera Office of Human Resources is pleased to report that from 3 January until 7 February, employees of the Consell de Formentera can apply to secure the professional status of their position. The right to a professional position is defined by legislation on the basic statute of public employees, and last legislature, political groups reached a cross-party agreement as to how to enact that legislation.

Paula Ferrer, Councillor of Human Resources, highlighted "the importance of empowering workers to validate the professional nature of their career, as it gives workers the opportunity to progress; it is a motivator that provides the public administration with a source of skilled workers with more training and knowledge of their job, and it improves the services received by citizens, which is number-one goal of government".

The decision to seek training and accreditation for 'professional career' status is voluntary, open to career public servants and permanent staff, to temporary public servants and staff, public servants with secondary employment, whether or not they are currently on assignment, and to non-permanent indefinite personnel. Professional career accreditation shall not be open to temporary staff or senior officials.  

In each one of four stages, employees must stay a minimum period of time to acquire the necessary competencies to advance to the next level. Workers' performance, experience and professional specialisation is assessed as well.

Aspiring candidates can sign up at the Citizen Information Office (Oficina d'Atenció al Ciutadà, OAC) or online on the OVAC by filling out a form which is available in the Office of Human Resources section of the Consell de Formentera website. When the application period is complete, a committee will evaluate requests and issue a provisional assessment of each applicant's employment status, as well as a period of consultation.

More than 1,200 island schoolchildren take part in 'Sport makes us equal'

foto 2021 valors esportToday Ana Juan, President and Councillor of Equality of the Consell de Formentera, and Paula Ferrer, Councillor of Sport, presented the campaign 'Sport makes us equal', part of the local initiative Posam Valors a l'Esport. Pupils in primary and secondary school will be the first to take part in the training programme, in which more than 1,200 local schoolchildren have already participated.

"The programme approaches equality from the angle of sports and education, an extremely appropriate way to spread the message and shape a future society that is more egalitarian across the board", said President Juan in the presentation. The island's top official highlighted the collaboration of the Formentera Office of Equality (Conselleria d'Igualtat), which will be in charge of an array of associated workshops, and applauded the Formentera Office of Sport (Conselleria d'Esports) "for their work spotlighting the values of sport".

The underlying goal of the programme is to discuss equality and other considerations like conflict resolution, frustration and motivation through the prism of sport. The training programme is designed to be practical and participative.

"In high demand among schoolchildren"

Councillor Ferrer said the programme, which launched in October, has been the subject of "intense demand on the part of primary schools and Marc Ferrer High School, who have requested workshops on equality and dealing with frustration and conflict resolution". Ferrer said some fifty workshops have taken place to date while others are in the works for the semester ahead. "Our job is to promote sport and we believe these actions help us do just that". Plans are also in place for workshops geared toward sport clubs, players, coaches and parents.

Audiovisual material

The CE has prepared audiovisual material to help broaden the programme's reach, including an initial video produced by Alfredo Montero and featuring young athletes from the island. Posters have also been made and, together with the video, they will be distributed across social media and other channels. Posam Valors a l'Esport has received €12,000 from the Balearic Directorate General of Sport.
