Giovanna Larco




I am an educator with a master’s degree in distance education and adult education. Since 1995 I have directed worker education programs in Peru and other Latin American countries. Since 1991 I have been working at PLADES and since 2014 I have been its Executive President, as well as coordinator of projects aimed at improving working conditions. I also carry out research on labor and labor market issues for PLADES, ILO and other organizations.


PLADES has been a member of IFWEA for many years and has contributed to the design and implementation of online training programmes for workers.

In this period, using the educational experience of PLADES and staff, we would like to promote the incorporation into IFWEA of other organisations dedicated to the training of workers in Latin America, to support the exchange of experiences and the development of regional programmes for training workers and workers.
