Lusa - Business News - Portugal: PM wants 10K new graduates, 23K adults on training courses by 2025

Lisbon,June.21,2021(Lusa)-The Prime Minister said on Monday that the Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP) will enable training targets to be accelerated, setting as additional objectives 10,000 new graduates and 23,000 participants in short courses.
António Costa conveyed this position at a session to launch the RRP programmes "adult impulse" and "youth impulse STEAM" in Lisbon, after the opening speech of the Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education, Manuel Heitor.
In his speech the Prime Minister began by mentioning that on Tuesday a programme with short-term economic effects on the energy efficiency of buildings will be launched but stressed immediately afterwards that the RRP is not essentially designed for short-term impacts.
"These impulse programmes will not produce results tomorrow, or a year from now, but will produce lasting results over the coming decades, through the acquisition of training," he argued.
He pointed out that the school drop-out rate in 2010 was of 30%, double the European average, with the objective of reducing it in 2020 to a maximum of 10%, being now of 9%.
Also according to the data presented by the leader of the executive, in 2010 only 24% of the generation between 30 and 34 years had completed Higher Education, having increased in 2020 to 43% in this age group.
"Portugal is in third place in the European Union, only surpassed by Denmark and Germany, in the rate of recent engineering graduates - results that were unthinkable when I was an association leader and extremely ambitious in 2010. Now, in 2021, we have to be as ambitious, if not more ambitious, than in 2010", he declared.
For the Prime Minister, with the RRP, the goals set until 2030 should be accelerated and Portugal "go further".
"With the youth STEAM impulse, by 2025, Portugal will have ten thousand more new graduates in these areas, which represents an increase in the order of 40% in the next six years. It is an ambitious goal that can only be achieved if it is networked, obviously with the students, with the Higher Education institutions, universities or polytechnic institutes", he pointed out.
As for lifelong adult training, he warned that these programmes are fundamental to fight "an unequal and dual society", saying that there is a direct relationship between training and productivity and "even more direct between employability and qualification".
"This programme has a very ambitious goal of having by 2025 at least 23,000 participants in short training courses of higher scope. Once again, it is essential to count on everyone's partnership", he insisted, before leaving some messages to companies.
"It is not enough to think that it is only possible to develop these activities in an after-work regime. These activities will have to be developed in a work context and will certainly be considered as a part of work activity. The synergies between the companies and the institutions that will carry out these courses are of the utmost importance", he pointed out.
António Costa also considered that it is important to add another element to the idea of conciliation between work and family life.
"It is necessary to add to professional and family life the life of learning. This will be the new reality of the world", he sustained.
