NTT DATA Foundation launches Digital Talent School

Foundation NTT DATA launches the Digital Talent School with the dual aim of equipping businesses with the skilled talent they need for their development and sustainability, and providing employability tools for people who are unemployed or want to retrain. The program includes a 450-hour training for six months, does not require programming knowledge and will focus on Python Data Analytics, one of the profiles most sought by the market.

It It is a free online training program of one of the profiles most demanded by companies and organizations. The training is aimed at a wide range of people with no prior programming knowledge, professionals and self-employed people who need digital skills to boost their business, and people seeking retraining or initial studies aimed at employability.

Several reports commissioned by the European Commission have repeatedly warned of the need to train qualified professionals in the most demanding digital technical tasks. The year 2022 ends with 50 % unfilled vacancies in the data management sector, a situation that will continue and aggravate in the coming years due to a lack of experts in the field.

More than 5 million jobs of data analysts will be needed in the European Union over the next five years. In Spain, with an unemployment rate of 13 %, it is estimated that there are around 120.000 vacancies. It was also estimated in 2021 that the IT market in Latin America grew by 8.5 % and, as a result, the vacancies of professionals according to International Data Corporation (IDC) data.

The Digital Talent School is launched in Spain, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru, where the NTT DATA Foundation is present and in which it has identified a similar shortage of professionals.
