The UTN University and the technical Siemens School in Buenos Aires are launching a Virtual Training Program together with Siemens to improve the employability of their students and help them prepare for the labor market. I was able to provide consulting and feedback on the process of implementing effective eLearning structures for the technical school.
In the currently difficult economic situation, creating a link to a company and entering the labor market is a tough task for many young Argentinians. After graduating, many stay unemployed for long periods of time and have to retrain before finding access to a company willing to take them in. Based on the specific needs of the University and its connected companies in South America, digital content can prepare students for their internships and later positions.
The goal is to permanently connect educational institutions with company staff, helping to balance the demand and supply of trained professionals. In a legal context that does not allow underage students to learn within a private company, this project might turn out an effective model to meet the human resources needs of the private sector in Argentina.
