Created on the initiative of the Regional Government of Wallonia in 1998, Technofutur TIC is an approved ‘centre of competence’ based at the Aéropôle de Gosselies business park to the north of Charleroi.
Centres of competence were conceived as centres for training, monitoring and awareness-raising, as part of a development process, to meet the needs expressed by businesses, workers, job seekers, education and sector partners.
The drive that began in the late nineties was aimed at creating ‘new generation’ training centres:
focused on quality and creativity;
accessible to all – from a company boss to a final-year school student – and upholding equal opportunities;
seeking partnerships between the public and private sectors in order to integrate all the needs of the socioeconomic players;
established in areas with high development potential so as to be consistent with Wallonia’s economic development.
