The Congress program, which in this edition has been carried out online, has focused on analyzing the importance of establishing a link between Technical Professional Education and the world of work.

During the activity, an analysis of the investment of% of GDP per student was carried out in a selection of countries, belonging to the OECD and the data is compared with PISA results, to conclude on the human development of each nation when it invests in education. In addition, the result of basic skills in young people seeking access to jobs is projected, analyzing the reality of graduates of Vocational Technical Training when they are faced with access to jobs.

The symposium aims to respond to SDG 4.4, presenting a real proposal for the employment of young people who graduate from Vocational Technical Training and must face the current economic effects derived from the pandemic.
