Tecma’s “Supérate” program boosts educational levels of Mexican maquiladora personnel
The Tecma Group of Companies is a supporter of the adult education of its maquiladora personnel.
On November 28, 2014, the Tecma Group of Company’s organized its annual graduation ceremony for those employees that successfully participated in 2014’s Supérate Tecma (Improve Yourself) program. The event took place at the offices of Mexico’s National Maquiladora Association (INDEX) in Ciudad Juarez.
Each year “Supérate” provides Tecma’s maquiladora personnel the opportunity to continue to pursue their educational goals. The program provides adults employed by Tecma the opportunity to take part in studies on the grade school, middle school and high school levels. Instruction is provided through Mexico’s Instituto Nacional para la Educacion de Adultos (INEA), or the National Institute for Adult Education. INEA was created in 1981 for the purpose of increasing Mexico’s adult literacy rate.
In total a group of twenty-eight maquiladora personnel participated in this year’s Superate Tecma program. There were:
- two students that completed studies on the elementary school level;
- nineteen individuals that finished their middle school work;
- seven maquiladora personnel that fulfilled the requirements to receive their high school diplomas;
According to the Tecma Group’s director of human resources, Abraham Medina, “One of the fundamental premises on the basis of which the Tecma Group of Companies acts is that our maquiladora employees are the company’s most valuable resource. For this reason we constantly provide support for and work with agencies that lend services that enable individuals that work for Tecma to pursue personnel growth.”
