Simplon in Spain
Spain ranks 11th in the European Commission's DESI 2020 index.
Young people aged 15 to 24 represent 9.8% of the Spanish population, or nearly 4.6 million people. Unemployment rate among young people is very high (nearly 40.8% in June 2020). Only 7% of people in post-secondary education study STEM, while the demand for IT specialists by Spanish companies is growing.

Factoría F5 is the exclusive partner of Simplon in Spain.
Created as a non-profit association, it opened its first coding school in Barcelona early 2018 with 20 coders learning full stack web-development. Two years later, Factoría F5 initiated a national network gathering two other coding schools in Madrid and Bilbao and soon a fourth school will open in Asturias.
Factoría F5 plans to scale-up its national network with 15 coding schools in Spain by 2024, creating alliances with major players of tech and social areas and cooperating at European level.
Simplon inclusive bootcamp model is a highly relevant answer to major social and economical issues in Spain.
It is especially meaningful for assessing specific challenges such as youth unemployment and gender and accessibility gaps.
