120 People Enrol in TAP Academy

03 October 2017

Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP) offers another round of free English, IT and social media marketing courses for people living in Lecce. The initiative is called TAP Academy and is part of TAP’s €12 million social and environmental investment (SEI) programme in Italy. 

Following the success of the first round of free courses in English and IT / computer science, organised in April 2017, TAP broadened the scope to include social media marketing, a key element in helping local businesses elevate their audience and customer base.

The IT / computer science courses comprise basic and advanced modules and prepare participants for the European Computer Driving License (ECDL) exams. The English courses are split into basic English as well as English for the tourism industry (intermediate level) and are provided by the language school Oxford Group Lecce

Groups include maximum 12 participants and started in October 2017. Those interested in signing up can contact TAP’s Infopoint in Melendugno.

TAP continues to implement tailored SEI projects in the Puglia Region which focus on:

  • Livelihoods, with an emphasis on the tourism, agriculture and fisheries
  • Environmental management, with an emphasis on issues linked to tourism, agriculture and the marine environment; 
  • Community quality of life, with an emphasis on services and infrastructure
