FP is definitely in fashion. According to a report by Infoempleo, in 2020 professionals who have come out of Vocational Training have already exceeded university students in employability. But perhaps the biggest differential point is that VET is adapting in a much more agile way to some of the labor needs of the future, such as jobs linked to the digital world and programming.
To these is added the new FP Law that the Government plans to approve, which will increase powers in the future.
Now, what FP to study? From Campus FP , a Vocational Training center, they have developed a comparison in which to reel off some of the areas that have less competition and higher salary right now within Higher FP.
Higher educational FP: an upward and stable option
The demand for professionals with digital skills has grown in these times of pandemic. Also that of early childhood educators, whose salaries can be around 1,200 euros per month.
VET qualifications in this sector allow working, for example, as educators in the first cycle of early childhood education, in programs with minors at social risk, in family support environments or in leisure and free time programs or activities.
Healthcare VETs more necessary than ever after COVID
Supportive health workers have become essential and much-needed professionals in recent times. People trained in health and social services register the lowest unemployment rates in the EPA in the first quarter of 2021 (9.1%).
Some outstanding titles of the training offer in this field are those of superior technicians in Clinical and Biomedical Laboratory; Pathological Anatomy and Cytodiagnosis ; Oral hygiene; Imaging for Nuclear or Dietary Medicine and Diagnosis.

Digital Marketing modules and cycles
The retail sector employs more than 2.23 million people in Spain (11.5% of the total). E-commerce and marketing coordinators and consultants , distributors or logistics supervisors are gaining ground among the most sought after. Here we can find training for superior technicians in Marketing and Advertising or in International Trade.

Programming and IT FP
