Barcelona, ​​12/16/2022.- Of every 100 young people who request information about this type of training, 28 end up enrolling in a center to start vocational training studies. Vocational Training is the fastest growing training segment and with the highest enrollment rate in the market, 28% when compared to other segments (Courses 21%, Masters 24% and Oppositions 19%). The Nursing Assistant, Pharmacy and Early Childhood Education programs are the most in demand, as are the courses for Higher Technician in Clinical and Biomedical Laboratory, Higher Technician in Documentation and Health Administration, and Higher Technician in Pathological Anatomy and Cytodiagnosis.

These were some of the data presented by, during the celebration of the VII Professional Conference, an event that manages to bring together every year, both in Madrid and Barcelona, ​​managers and marketing managers from more than 500 training centers, universities and business schools to address the current vision and projection of the training market.

"This year the market began with a general decrease. However, as of the third quarter it has been recovering, reaching 2021 levels in attracting users and enrolling in training centers."

Language, computer science and health courses continue to be the most sought after by users who are inclined towards Subsidized Training, while programs linked to the industrial sector have registered a slight decrease in this segment during 2022.

"Despite the changes in the market after the pandemic, there are indicators that remain: the growth of Online Training continues, in degrees (Education, Health and Law are the categories with the greatest demand) and official masters (Education and Law, programs enablers are the most sought after) in which the preference for face-to-face dominates; although online training in this segment has continued to grow for a couple of years," Ferrer explained at the close of the Conference attended by specialists from Google and Meta , Emagister partners.
