SCHIPHOL - Schiphol and Rotterdam Airport are going to provide a hundred disadvantaged Moroccan youth with training to become airport workers. The young people will start a five-week accelerated training programme in November.
 
Working with customers, platform activities and job application skills will all be covered during the course. A spokesperson for Schiphol confirmed on Tuesday a report on this in the Telegraaf.

Upon completion of the training course, youth will be given a certificate allowing them to proceed to a trainee job or more extensive training. If they want to apply for a job immediately at that point they will be given assistance from the airports.

The police will select the candidates for the programme. In connection with the strict security requirements at the airport they must not have been in trouble with the law for any serious crimes. The project has been named after Princess Maxima.

Rotterdam Airport has successfully organised such programmes in the past, once for Antilleans and once for Moroccans. This is the first time that Schiphol is participating as well.
