Replicating the success model of the Microsoft by Simplon AI School launched in 2018 in France, the AI School F5 has opened its doors in Madrid. The objective is to train for free a person in a situation of vulnerability to become developers in artificial intelligence during 9 intensive months with an inclusive and high-quality training.
The alliance that makes this formative project possible is composed by Microsoft and JP Morgan, world-leading and internationally recognized companies that share a commitment to an inclusive economy and labor market, and inclusive and solidary digital schools, Simplon.co and Factoría F5.
Juntos han made possible the launch in Madrid of the primera formationa inclusiva y solidaria en Inligencia Artificial que ofrecerá new job opportunities in the technological sector, como también aportará to the companies of the sector a necessary diversity of new digital profiles formed in las compencias más punteras.
25 people, mostly women, will follow a free, intensive and inclusive training in Artificial Intelligence provided by Factoría F5 in Microsoft Ibérica headquarters and Talent Garden spaces in Madrid. The itineraria includes 9 months of technical training and practice, and it is mainly aimed at young people without employment, women in precarious situations, refugees, long-term unemployed, as well as people who need to reorient themselves and train to be able to reintegrate into the labor market.
“Microsoft maintains a firm commitment to encourage training in digital skills, accompanying people in vulnerable situations and with the objective of accessing the numerous job opportunities that the information technology sector represents in Spain. This project is an excellent example of collaboration between companies and social entities with the objective of reducing the digital talent gap”assures Alberto Granados, president of Microsoft Spain.
Por su parte, Ana Marshall, Director de Recursos Humanos de JP Morgan en EMEA, has highlighted: “The transformation digital has brought with it many challenges and opportunities, especially in the labor market, with trabajos, como los relacionados con la Inteligencia Artificial y la ciencia de datos, que no existían hace unos años. But many people, particularly those who are in a more vulnerable situation, do not have the capabilities, resources or support necessary to access the jobs of the future. Hemos visto ya el potential de este programa en Francia y Bélgica, y estamos encantados de apoyar a Factoría 5 en su implementación ahora en España, para seguir contributendo al desarrollo de una economía más inclusiva.”
Para Frédéric Bardeau, presidente de Simplon, “The opening of the AI School F5 in Madrid is a new stage in the development of a free, intensive and inclusive training offer in Spain from our partner entity, Factoría F5“.

The training of the AI School F5 in artificial intelligence development is designed especially to allow the acquisition of the skills most sought after by technological companies. This is achieved through an active pedagogy, 100% practical, developed by Simplon, and which Factoría F5 implements in all its formations in Spain.
The AI School F5 is part of the Inclusive Digital Talent initiative, driven by Fundación Tomillo and Factoría F5, which promotes the consolidation of a network of private and public professionals of the first level that makes Madrid one of the main European technological hubs .
