Oracle: Technology company Oracle today (09) announced a major expansion to the Oracle Next Education (ONE) training program, which offers education courses aimed at the technology market. In addition to training for low-income young people, the initiative also has the differential of bringing students closer to the job market.
Launched in 2019 exclusively in Brazil, ONE will now be available throughout Latin America. According to Rodrigo Galvão, senior vice president of Tech at Oracle for the region, the project was quite successful in the country and, thanks to that, the company invested to expand its reach.
In addition to territorial expansion, the company intends to considerably increase the number of vacancies offered by the initiative. While the debut version of the program managed to graduate around 4,500 students, the company wants to reach 40,000 talents impacted by ONE by the end of 2022.

Oracle ONE will offer 8 thousand vacancies in Latin America, but the number could be fivefold with the success of the endeavor. In Brazil, the new phase of the program begins by offering around 2,840 opportunities — ONE will also be present in places like Argentina, Chile, Peru and Colombia, with at least 240 vacancies per country.
