Spain invests 1.3 billion Euros in vocational training

MADRID (Reuters), – On Saturday, Spanish Premier Pedro Sanchez announced the government’s intention to invest 1.3 Billion Euros ($1.43 Billion) in vocational education.

The cabinet will approve the measure next week. It will create 45,000 bilingual training places for vocational training, 824 new centres of training and more than 1500 classrooms to teach applied technology and entrepreneurship.

Sanchez stated this during an event of the Socialist Party in Pamplona.

He said, “We’re creating more jobs and better ones… The best way to do this is by investing in quality vocational training like the most developed countries in Europe.”

Sanchez stated that the new investment will be added to the 6.6 billion dollars the government has already invested.

The new investment aims to reduce youth employment, according to him.

Sanchez’s leftist-led government brought in a labour law in 2021 that has already improved the employment market for young Spanish people.
