Partners in training
Various organisations provide support to companies, employees and jobseekers.
Highly-qualified personnel is a requirement for any organisation that aims to provide a solid response to market challenges. That is why many companies in the port invest in in-house training. The number of training hours per employee has risen every year since 2009-2010, when it dropped because of the economic crisis. Companies can contact CEPA and Portilog about follow-up training for their employees.
People who are interested in a job in the port - whether they are jobseekers or are considering a career change - can choose from a wide array of specialised training programmes, organised by CVO Antwerpen, Talentenstroom and VDAB.
