Diagnosis and analysis of the regional sociolaboural system of Dénia
The presentation of the Report "DIAGNOSIS AND ANALYSIS OF DÉNIA'S SOCIOLABOURAL SYSTEM" Phase I, carried out by the associated centre of the UNED (National Distance Education University), was presented on 16 May 2016 at the Plenary Room of the Dénia City Council. In the words of the Mayor Vicent Grimalt, this study "must serve to know our current situation and the impact of future actions to be implemented by the Committee".
The study's main conclusion highlights that, though existing training is adequate in response to the town's needs, some unmet needs have been detected in other professions. The analysis confirms that the city's economy is mostly driven by tourism, and proposes reflecting on the weaknesses inherent to relying on such a volatile sector that depends on strategic, geopolitical decisions made elsewhere.
The technology level of companies is detected as "weak", suggesting the need for related training. The diagnosis also added that the combination of transportation and roads for accessing Dénia from other towns of the region are an obstacle to favouring access to training and, in particular, to employment.
