ACCESS TO QUALIFIED JOBS
“At MAINGATE, our aim is help people who have completed higher education in their country of origin and who plan a professional career in Spain enter always through the main door, the one they deserve. To do this, they must be able to validate or reinforce their studies as quickly as possible. They must also be entitled to develop a career that corresponds to their qualifications and expectations. And as they develop a profitable life in their new country, they will contribute to the construction of a plural, competitive and productive society.
At MAINGATE, we act as sherpas for these people. Not only we accompany and encourage them on the long and difficult road to achieving their goals, but we also strengthen their own skills and instil in them a culture of effort and resilience. We know from personal experience the valuable and rich contribution that many of these determined, hard-working and combative people have made to this country.
MAINGATE is the fruit of the experience of educated people who have lived and suffered the long and arduous journey of migration, adaptation to a new culture and validation and reinforcement of their education. All with the sole aim of turning their dreams and aspirations into reality.
