The Ciara Government continues its mission of investing in education and programs that change the lives of the citizens of Ciara. He launched, on Monday (18), the C-Jovem Project. The initiative will reach the entire state, with the goal of training 100,000 students in up to five years in developing technologies, such as 5G infrastructure, Android development, and the cloud. The event was attended by Conservative Izolda Schilla, leaders of the relevant government departments, representatives of Ceará’s higher education institutions, companies partnering in this project, and political leaders.
“In our government there is a movement aimed at building a better, more dignified and equitable society for the people of Ceará. We know the challenges we face in the face of digital transformation. But with C-Jovem, we are following the flow, so as not to miss the opportunity to use this intelligence and technology to transform and train young people for the job market, as a powerful driver of human development in Ceará,” Isolda Cella noted.
This work, multi-institutional, arose in light of the need for professionals for the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector in Brazil and also in light of understandings with the sector for the development of Ceará. It is the result of a joint proposal by the Government of Ceará, through the Departments of Education (Seduc); Economic development and employment (Sedet); Science, Technology and Higher Education (Secitece); Planning and Management (Seplag), by the IT company Ceará (Etice). At this first moment, higher education institutions (IES) participate: the Federal Institute of Education, Science and Technology of Ceará (IFCE), the State University of Ceará (Uece) and the Federal University of Ceará (UFC). Amazon Web Services (AWS), DELL, Huawei, Google, and Oracle are the Atlantic Institute’s partners.
The pilot project that initiated C-Jovem in the state’s public school system has trained more than 200 teachers, who are now imparting knowledge to 4,358 students in technical courses in computer and informatics networks at 109 state vocational education schools. “From the second semester of this year, we will advance according to assessments, with students ready for the job market, and with an international certificate,” the Minister of Education, Ileana Estrella, informed.
The President of the Legislative Assembly, Evandro Litau, stresses the importance of having a public policy that can bridge the gap caused by social status. “This action is in line with the implementation of the Technology Center in Ceará. We are implementing a visionary program, which gives the youth of our public school a perspective on life through something fundamental to all of us, which is work,” he said.
Darwin Pinheiro, a teacher trained through the project, studied in Aracoiaba, in Maciço de Batorité, and believes that C-Jovem is already changing the lives of not only students, but teachers as well. “We are sure that those who adopt this training will consolidate the change that has already occurred for me, as they will enter the labor market more in line with the technologies of the moment. We will improve the curriculum for students, and put them in a position to secure a place in an increasing market,” he explained. demand it.”
Six knowledge tracks will be offered: Cloud, 5G Infrastructure, Fullstack, Artificial Intelligence, Java and Android Development. The training includes logical thinking; English for ICT; Entrepreneurship and innovation. communication and personal relationships; and information and communication technology, where young people can choose a specific field.
This innovative experience will be shaped by work cells. Each one consists of a coordinator who supports young teachers from higher education. These, in turn, support high school students. The program will be implemented through an extension project of the higher education institution and will last for one year, taking into account the period of immersion in the student’s partner companies to use the knowledge in practice.
The big difference noted by C-Jovem is the flexibility that each cell must add to the specific course requirements of the partner companies.
With this initiative, outcomes such as talent retention through increased quality of employment and entrepreneurship opportunities are expected to be achieved; Better presentation by ICT professionals, both in quantitative terms and in co-curricular training, in a manner linked to the requirements of a strategic sector of the country; engaging youth in collaborative entrepreneurship and social and economic development policies; Government, academia, and companies aligned to contribute to the promotion of entrepreneurship and innovation.
On behalf of the program partner companies, AWS National Director, Paolo Cunha, praised the innovation provided by the Ceará Government. “Cloud computing, digital transformation, innovation through data transformation, and now, have brought empowerment to a market where we have a massive shortage. I have no doubts about Ceará’s potential and what we can do. We will continue to invest in the country. Most importantly: We are very happy to be able to Participation in a revolutionary program, which brings career and opportunity in a field that certainly has at least another ten years of longevity in terms of manpower shortages.”

An opinion reinforced by the young Leticia. “It is something we are adding to our curriculum in a big way, and it will greatly expand our knowledge and our chances of thriving, creating new opportunities.
