The National Congress of Brazil suggested the proposal to benefit young people and take advantage of blockchain technology.
The National Congress of Brazil has promoted a series of courses aimed at young people without jobs. The initiative seeks to train the younger population for the future. According to the information that the entity shared, the name of the project is “Legislative Chamber – Shaping the Future”. This program has educational programs for various areas, among which the development of blockchain technology stands out.
According to the local news portal, Pelo Mundo DF, the program seeks to bring together young people with limited resources, public school students, and unemployed people who aspire to better job opportunities for the future.
The review stated that the institution officially launched the program on June 4th. Besides, the institution emphasizes that the objective of the program is to train young people who can perform work in different sectors of the economy as soon as possible. The National Congress of Brazil hopes that participants will be able to diversify their employment options in the future and that there will be personnel prepared to occupy defined positions, related to new technologies.
Students Will Receive the Educational Program in Blocks
Regarding some details about the educational program that The National Congress of Brazil has prepared, local media informed that the program will consist of two blocks. The first block is about Qualification and the second one is about Initiation and Improvement.
According to the program data, the first block of Qualification will have courses ranging from Graphic Designer for web products and Administrative Assistant to Controller and Production Programmer, among others. This block will have hourly loads that vary between 160 and 240 hours.
On the other hand, the second block of Initiation and Improvement will have an hourly load of between 20 and 40 hours. This second block will have courses more emphatic to new technologies, such as Mobile Programming for the Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain development, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Collaborative Robotics.
The aforementioned courses will function, in most cases, in a distance learning modality. According to project representatives, some collaborators will provide students with an ideal space for study. Only in very specific cases, students will go to the classroom.
Although the institution has not detailed further on what students will learn in each course, The National Congress of Brazil highlighted that it hopes to start the registration period in mid-July.
Regarding the birth of this project, local media detailed that Deputy Rafael Germano Delmasso, Representative of the Republican Party of Brazil, is the author of the idea and requested support from other legislators.
The Deputy mentioned that this project is of vital importance since it creates the conditions for the current educational system to maintain continuity, despite the difficult conditions the country is going through due to the Covid-19 outbreak that has forced citizens to maintain a mandatory quarantine.
“We need to find practical solutions so that people can be trained with all possible health security. This program is a way for the CLDF to contribute to the professional initiation of young people, mainly in this period of the pandemic,” the Deputy commented.
