Magalu launches a free programming course for people over 40

NS Louisa Stores This week he announced a free technology program aimed at people 40 and over. According to the retailer, the initiative aims to help introduce residents of this age group into the job market.

NS ‘Develops 40+’ It will offer 100 scholarships for technology training (Python), 50% of which will target black or brown people.

The course will last for three months. With 200 hours of workload, Desenvolvimento 40+ will be divided into 108 hours of live remote classes and 92 hours of asynchronous online content, allowing the learner to access the material at their most convenient time.

Training ranges from early programming concepts to the complex levels of the Python language, Magalu informs.

“The proposal for the initiative is to create generational integration at Luizalabs, to train programmers in a labor-deficient area and also to introduce professionals aged 40 or over, who are also affected by the difficulties of the labor market,” the company says.

Magalu’s technology district, Luizalabs, has only 14.2% of contracted professionals aged 40 or over.

In addition to the lack of opportunities for individuals at this age, the scarcity of labor in the market is another factor that the project considers.

A study by Brasscom (Brazilian Association of Information and Communication Technology Companies) indicates that since 2019, it will be necessary to employ 70,000 people annually to cover the sector’s requirements by 2024.

Basic requirements

To enroll in the program, a professional does not need any prior knowledge in technology.

The person must be 40 years of age or older, have completed high school, live in Brazil, and be available to watch online lessons on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, from 7 PM to 10 PM.
