São Paulo, SP, and Curitiba, PR (continued) – With an unemployment rate of 12.3% in the first quarter, higher than the national average of 11.1%, the state of São Paulo is looking for solutions to employ the job-seeking population. Through a partnership, the state government is offering 25,000 places in free courses in the areas of technology and innovation.
There are four courses – HTML Web Developer, NET Fundamentals, Java Developer and Java Script Game Developer – with registration already open. Classes are online and, eventually, a certificate is issued. The courses are for residents of the state of São Paulo, educated and at least 16 years old.
Applications can be submitted on the website www.cursosviarapida.sp.gov.br/trilhas-sp-tech until August 30 or while there are vacancies.
The free opportunities are the result of a partnership with the company Digital Innovation One, and according to the Minister of Economic Development of the State of São Paulo, Zina Latif, they aim to train people from São Paulo for a sector that suffers from a shortage of qualified professionals.
We are interested in providing training that increases employment and income opportunities for citizens. “Brazil has a labor shortage in the IT sector, and these 25,000 vacancies can help meet the demand,” says Latif.
Data from Brasscom (the association of information and communication technology and digital technology companies) indicates that by 2025, Brazil could face an annual shortfall of 159,000 professionals in software and IT services. In addition, the demand for such professionals can reach 800 thousand.
The government has invested in partnerships in an effort to solve the unemployment problem in the state of São Paulo. And in the Employment Task Force, convened by the trade union, the Secretariat was present to deliver sessions. In all, more than 1,600 people were registered in Via Rápido and Bolsa Empreendedor during the 16th collective effort.
