The five member companies of the technology hub for Vocational Training have today presented the first proposal for a Training Strategy to guarantee the profiles most in demand in the sector.
This is the first step taken by this group within the framework of the collaboration agreement signed with Minister Pilar Alegría last April.
The initiative seeks, through public-private collaboration, to resolve the difficulties encountered by 84% of Spanish technology companies in finding professionals.
The Secretary-General for Vocational Training, Clara Sanz, analysed this Tuesday, together with the five companies that form part of the technology hub for Vocational Training, the first proposal for a Training Strategy designed to guarantee the training of the professional profiles demanded by the sector. “The strategy that you are presenting today is further proof of the firm commitment of the companies to the new Vocational Training system designed by the Spanish Government”, he said.
This initiative is part of the collaboration agreement signed last April by the Minister of Education and Vocational Training, Pilar Alegría, Accenture, Experis-ManpowerGroup, IBM, Microsoft and SAP Spain to promote a Vocational Training offer in the technological field capable of responding to the requirements of today’s economy.
“This is a clear example of how training offers should be designed in the new Vocational Training system through public-private collaboration in order to guarantee training courses that are fully connected with the professional reality”, stressed Sanz.
The document presented today includes the technological talent shortages suffered by these companies, as well as the training proposals aimed at the most in-demand professionals in the field of Vocational Training, such as artificial intelligence, cloud, Big Data or cybersecurity, among others. The hub pointed to the need to fill more than 120,000 jobs in the sector over the next two years in Spain.
Also taking part in the presentation of the strategy were Raúl Grijalba, Managing Director for the Mediterranean and Eastern Europe at Experis, Bruno Chao, Managing Director of Accenture Technology in Spain, Portugal and Israel, Fernando Aguilar, Director of Experis Academy at ManpowerGroup, Javier González, Executive Director of Public Sector at IBM Technology Spain, and Izaskun Ramos, Director of Public Sector, Banking and Insurance and member of the Management Committee of SAP Spain.
