This is a milestone within the Amazonas prison system and reflects the efforts of the State Secretariat for Penitentiary Administration (SEAP) in the process of resocializing inmates. These free courses are offered in web series format and in-person lectures by New Life, co-manager of the two prison units, in partnership with Instituto Mundo Melhor.
Since the beginning of the personal development program, the three most popular courses among interns were “Trial by Fire”, “The art of planning strategies” and “Marketing on social networks”. With an average workload of 5 hours per module, certified by the Woli Management Faculty (FGW), in Araxá (MG), the courses train students to work in the areas of secretarial, administration, technology, hospitality and social assistance, among others.
“This is another project that we take to the prison units where we are present for the personal and professional development of those re-educated, with the aim of accelerating their resocialization processes. Therefore, the courses address behavioral, relational and organizational issues, in addition to technical knowledge necessary to carry out work activities. This way, the re-educated students become safer and more qualified for their reintegration into society”, explains Alexsander Batista, general manager of New Life Serviços.
In addition to free courses, re-educating students from CDPMs I and II also have access to undergraduate courses (bachelor’s degree, licentiate degree and technologist) that guarantee professional training and remission of one day of sentence for every 12 hours of studies.
