Instituto Nu and Descomplica launch a technology education program that can impact 10,000 socially vulnerable people

Among the vacancies available on the platform, 50% will be reserved for black people, with 30% of them being exclusive to black women

São Paulo, July 20, 2022 – Instituto Nu, Nubank’s social impact initiative, announces the launch of its first technology education program in partnership with Descomplica, the largest EdTech in Latin America. The program is expected to impact 10,000 students aged 18 and over who live in socially vulnerable situations.

The selected students will undergo a 100% online training cycle, with recorded and live classes, support material, and technical assessments, and will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the 15-week course. “Our mission with Instituto Nu is to generate positive, lasting, and significant social impact for people in Brazil’s low-income regions. The program will enable and enhance opportunities for thousands of people in the technology area, and we believe that this is just the beginning”, explains Marisa Santana, project manager at Instituto Nu.

In addition to the technical content, there will be 100 hours of web development classes (with CS and JavaScript) and FrontEnd (with design thinking, UX, CSS, HTML, among others). The course will also have topics relevant to the job market, such as Diversity, Soft Skills and Project Management. To facilitate access to the content, there is a partnership with an internet operator that ensures that students do not use their data package to access the platform’s content.

“The platform will unite Descomplica’s mission – to deliver quality education – with that of Instituto Nu – to fight social inequality through education – in an effective and necessary product for those who need it most, bringing qualification and opportunity,” comments Bety Tichauer, Expansion Director at Descomplica.

Affirmative vacancies

Registration is open from July 27 through the program’s website. There will be 3,000 spots this year and 7,000 spots in the first half of next year. Among the vacancies available on the platform, 50% will be reserved for black people, with 30% of them being exclusive to black women. “This is an education and training initiative that aims to generate opportunities and impact the lives of people who take the classes. It is a job done with a lot of intention, so there is also attention to the selection of these groups”, concludes Marisa.
