Complementary Education Program
Font Size

Itaipu supports its employees' continued education. Via the Complementary Education Program (CEP), the company has eliminated illiteracy from its staff.

Until 2006, employees who had not finished grade or high school had the opportunity to continue their studies.

Since 1996, 1,217 people were benefited by the CEP, which also included employees from companies hired by Itaipu and employee spouses. Besides classes, the program included recreation games and relaxation and meditation techniques.

Classes were given by volunteer teachers and college-graduate employees who adopted the methods provided by the Paraná State Department of Education.

Between 2003 and 2005, Itaipu extended the grade and high school equivalency program to Village C residents in Foz do Iguaçu. In 2006, classes were taken over by the city administration.

In 2006, the program closed its activities by teaching three female employees from contracted companies in Curitiba to read and write and sending them to regular public schools.
