BASES OF THE PROGRAMME The UPskill Programme has a national scope and aims to provide intensive training in Information and Communication Technologies to new professionals and then prepare them for work placement. As a starting point, any training action needs to be identified by one of the participant's companies. The request must specify the number of qualified human resources required, based on the technology and the potential job's geographical location. Thus, training content is developed to be provided by the Higher Education Institution of the region, typically conceived with a 3 to 6 months training duration. This training is intended to prepare people without prior technical knowledge, who are unemployed or underemployed, preparing them to start a new profession in Information and Communication Technologies. After this period, the trainee is integrated into one of the adherent companies in an additional 3 months period, called "work context training," to apply the knowledge learned and be integrated into a professional environment. The 1st edition of the Programme began its training component in October 2020, with 25 training actions. Before this, the programme executed a phase of identifying and selecting candidates, trou testing and personal interviews that included around 5,700 candidates for the 450 initial vacancies.
