The challenges of technical training in Brazil
Source: AURESIDE and Automation Institute
An editorial in the newspaper O Estado de São Paulo (in July 2018) highlights some figures that deserve our attention in relation to the training of our young people:
“According to the Ministry of Labor, only 10% of Brazilians aged up to 17 receive vocational education, being able to keep up with the revolution that Industry 4.0 In Japan, Finland and Austria, the index ranges from 70% to 76% of the young population.The figures show the difficulties faced by Brazil in forming human capital, an indispensable condition for the transition to more sophisticated levels of production and to occupy increasingly larger spaces on the world market. They also reveal that the country remains unable to train labor as productive and as adaptable as that of other emerging economies. “
On the other hand, this current deficiency in technical training causes somewhat abnormal situations related to the level of remuneration offered by the market, as shown in the paragraph below:
In a period of constant and rapid technological changes, in which some professions are being extinguished and others are emerging, requiring new forms of education and training u > and without the mandatory higher education, it is time to review the educational system. More precisely, it is time to realize that, in several areas of knowledge, quality technical education offers new generations better professional opportunities than those provided by traditional higher education. According to the Ministry of Labor, technicians from areas such as electromechanics, chemistry and energy earn R $ 7,200 per month, on average, with only one year of experience in the labor market. It is a higher salary than in areas that require university degrees, such as journalism, communication, sociology and economics.
At this moment, the Home and Building Automation market fits within this issue, where the technical training that enables professionals in areas such as installation and programming comes to meet a detected basic shortage and promises to those who invest in this training a prominent position in the job market.
Through the Instituto da Automação, AURESIDE and its supporters intend to reduce this gap and introduce new and qualified professionals to the market in the short term to boost business .
In this context, we suggest reading of this article that deals with this issue from the perspective of the needs found to meet the new building projects.
