After the success in 2018 and 2019 and in answer to the needs conveyed by the show business sector, this offer follows the same lines as the previous years although it also addresses new challenges for participants. 

With the aim of improving the employability and skills of these Canarian professionals, the training programme includes five intensive courses to be held between 2020 and 2021 for a reduced number of students. 

Thanks to the commitment of Fundación MAPFRE Guanarteme, we will have speakers and teachers who are specialised in the different subjects offered.
