They launch a campaign to strengthen the presence of women in industrial, scientific and technological VET

For years, more and more women have opted for VET as a training modality to continue their studies. The figures published by the Dualiza Bankia Professional Training Observatory, collected in its 2020 report, show that more women studied FP last year (2018-2019), both in the modality of higher diplomas (13, 5% women against 8.8% men), as in the middle class (17.4% against 12.2%). However, the unemployment rate between 2015 and 2019 is higher for women than for men who studied both modalities.

These data allow us to affirm that this fact is structural and may be linked to the fact that some of the professional families with the highest professional integration rates, such as manufacturers or STEM, are strongly masculinized. According to the aforementioned report, only 10.9% of those enrolled in information and communications technology cycles are women; figure reduced to 5.8% for those in Mechanical Manufacturing; 4.2% in electricity and electronics; 3.6% in extractive industries and 3.1% in those related to vehicle transport and maintenance.
