The SENAI Program of Inclusive Actions (PSAI) was nationally developed and applied in the state of Rio de Janeiro. It aims to include in our courses people with specific educational needs, to expand the attendance of Afro-Americans and Indigenous people, to allow women to access courses stigmatized for men, and vice versa; besides requalifying people over 45 years old and elderly ones, thus expanding their possibilities of inclusion and permanence in the labor market. Since the beginning of the program in the state of Rio, we have already qualified more than 11 thousand people with specific educational needs.
