In present-day conditions, the system of supplementary professional education becomes a powerful socio-economic tool. For the state and industry, this is a tool for training, retraining and adaptation of skilled personnel for new industries and technologically renewed production facilities.

As per World Economic Forum, it is an estimate that around 65% of students entering into primary school today will be working on jobs that yet do not exist.

As long as the disputes among political parties, Ministry, Universities and Students do not abate in the country, education itself will be the first to suffer. Brazil is a huge country with different cultures, traditions and problems, so different that no one questions the fact that there are several Brazils in Brazil. The difference is compounded by the crises and variety of ideas on how to overcome them, similar to any country in a transition period. In such a wide and diverse context, the development of a universal public policy is not an easy task. Any decision affects millions of people.
