Digital Employment

We train and prepare internet professionals at no cost in the most sought-after technologies (web development with Java, LifeRay, PHP, etc.). This project is aimed at unemployed people who want to point their careers in the direction of the digital world.

The Digital Employment Programme run by Fundación Telefonica is broadening its horizons with a new project involving free, specialized training in digital employment (web development with Java, LifeRay, PHP, etc.). This is a great opportunity because in addition to the training, we have established partnerships with companies and organizations that are seeking to recruit staff trained in technology and web development.

In particular, we are looking for people are interested in getting professional training in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). If you are unemployed and have computer skills and a foundation in maths, register now for this training programme for new digital careers.

The new Fundación Telefónica Employability Programme is open to individuals and companies alike: the former can get free training as digital experts, while the latter will find the IT professionals they are looking for. In this the second rollout, the programme works alongside Job&Talent, Autentia, Diacode, ASPGEMS, H4ckademy and TicJob. A highly qualified team of trainers, career advisers and mentors work with us to ensure that this is the start of a successful career.

Over the four-month period, participants will receive practical training using a project-based learning system.

Successful candidates will have to choose from the following training options:

Web development with JAVA

Development of web portals with LIFERAY

Web development with RUBY ON RAILS

Web development with PHP

Development of MOBILE APPS

All digital careers involve skills training. The programme works in three key areas: recruitment, training and working in companies; and there is a web platform to support the candidates through the whole process.

With this project, Fundación Telefónica is committed to promoting the incorporation of young graduates in the workplace. The aim is to serve as a link between job seekers and the companies with positions which require a high level of IT skills. At present, it is estimated that there are 85,000 IT vacancies in Spain, according to the Advanced Technology Centre of the INAEM (Government Employment Agency).


During the four-month course, participants will receive mostly practical training (90% practical, 10% theoretical) through a project-based learning process: starting with a problem, you will work individually and as part of a team, using research to put together and apply your new skills in the solution.

Also, leading experts in the digital sector will help the group during training. After the course and once in the workplace, selected candidates will be monitored by means of a programme of mentoring and ongoing training to continue adding to and developing their employment skills.
