SEAT and the Catalan government's Department of Business and Employment have signed an agreement to train new workers to build the forthcoming Audi Q3 at Martorell. The agreement will see 1200 people receive training, leading to the creation of at least 700 new jobs. The workers will be gradually incorporated into the company starting this Spring.

The Q3 project will guarantee 1500 jobs at SEAT, with 700 of those being new posts. For young people in the region, the company is offering the chance to get further qualifications as well as the prospect of working for SEAT on a long-term contract.'

The training agreement falls within the Forma i Contracta ('Train and Hire') programme run by the Catalan Employment Service (SOC). The program covers 100% of the cost of training in exchange for a commitment to offer at least 60% of those trainees who successfully complete the course a contract of not less than six months' duration.

SEAT remains the only company in its sector with the capacity to fully design, develop, manufacture and market cars in Spain. A member of the Volkswagen Group, the multinational has its headquarters in Martorell near Barcelona, and exports around 75% of its production to 72 countries. SEAT is the market leader in Spain and in 2010 had a turnover of around five billion euros, with total sales of 339,500 vehicles worldwide.
