Labora will train rural women in digital skills

Labora, the Valencian Employment and Training Service, will offer courses in digital skills for women unemployed in rural areas. This new initiative is the first to be launched from the aid package financed by the European Recovery Instrument (Next Generation EU) through the Recovery and Resilience Mechanism.

This program will be carried out through companies, private non-profit entities, local entities and other public bodies, trade unions and business organizations, which are the ones that will receive the subsidy to be able to organize the training actions. The entities have 15 business days to apply for the grant from this Monday at

In order to be eligible for the grant, endowed with more than €19 million, the entities must have duly registered facilities that allow them to teach the specialties and be registered in the corresponding Register of Training Entities for the training specialties subject to training.

These courses will be accessible to women, primarily unemployed and residents of depopulated or rural municipalities, who reside in municipalities of the Valencian Community that have less than 30,000 inhabitants.

The training actions that are carried out may consist of a single specialty of 40 hours or several specialties that together add up to 40 hours of training and will be taught in face-to-face mode.

Some of the courses that can be taken are the following:

With this initiative, Labora intends promote entrepreneurship and rural development and reduce the gender gap, within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan and the National Plan for Digital Competences to reinforce the digital competences of citizens, reducing the percentage of the Spanish population that lacks basic digital competences.

According to the report of the National Plan for Digital Competences, currently, some 15 million people in Spain lack basic digital competences and only 16.2% of ICT specialists are women2, (approximately 500,000), below the 16.5% of the EU-28 average.

In order to be able to take the digitization courses, it is essential to be registered with Labora.
