FELIPE VI


KING OF SPAIN
To all who see and hear.

Know: that the Parliament has approved and I hereby sanction the following law.
PREAMBLE


I

The reforms undertaken by the government since the beginning of the legislature have among their goals to face the changes that need our production model to place Spain on a sustainable path of growth and generate stable and quality jobs.

Vocational training for employment has an essential role in the articulation of these changes. For a sustained recovery of our economy it is necessary to enhance human capital and employability by improving their skills and professional skills. an adjustment between supply and demand for skills is also necessary, requiring anticipate the needs demanded by businesses and offer young people and the working population in general a tight formation to those needs.

The system of vocational training for employment in the workplace has allowed the improvement of employability and qualifications of many workers in our country over the past 20 years and has served to advance in linking the negotiation training collective. It has also allowed the spread and universalization of a culture of training that reaches more than four million workers a year currently more than 478,000 companies involved only in the so-called "training demand."

It has been a model of shared management between public administrations (central government and autonomous communities) and social partners, which has made progress in improving the professional skills of workers and the competitiveness of Spanish companies. However, the system has revealed certain weaknesses and inefficiencies that need to be addressed urgently to give immediate and more effective and efficient to the training needs of workers and the productive system so response.

In this regard, the conclusions of the Bureau of Social Dialogue, formed by the government, business organizations CEOE and CEPYME and CCOO and UGT unions, on the development of the latter Agreement Vocational Training for Employment 2006 show, among other weaknesses, poor coordination of the whole system; the lack of strategic planning of vocational training for employment; their limited links with the reality of the productive fabric, especially demand training aimed at SMEs; the unavailability of an integrated information system; the lack of impact assessment; and an inefficient defining the role of the agents involved in the system.

These deficiencies have weakened the training system in force to date to meet the challenges posed by the current stage of economic recovery and trends that influence the dynamics of the Spanish labor market and the productive sectors in the coming years.

The new regulatory framework focuses on addressing the different position, after the impact of the recent crisis, the various sectors and occupations in the process of economic recovery; also uneven impact of the crisis on the group of young people who require specific attention; the tendency to requirements for higher levels of qualification, especially to cover medium-skilled jobs; demand that the aging of the workforce will take the necessary qualifications to cover the replacement jobs; the coexistence of high unemployment with short supply of skilled labor in some sectors or emerging occupations with high levels of innovation; and increasing the group of long-term unemployed during the recent crisis, with the consequent need to adapt their employability to new labor market conditions.

The current economic situation provides an opportunity for change. The Skills Strategy OECD says that competencies have become the international currency of the economies in the XXI century: in a global society, increasingly based on knowledge, it is necessary to invest in training and update in accordance with the constant evolution requirements of labor markets. Best results requires analyzing the profile of skills of workers, and identify and anticipate the skills required in the market, to develop them, thereby creating better employment opportunities and economic development.


In this situation, a competitive environment with increasing demands for qualified workers and ascertained the results of the binomial employment-training, a production model of success requires a system of vocational training for quality jobs.

This implies a training system that accompanies workers access, maintenance and return to work, as well as their capacity for personal development and career advancement. A system that promotes the acquisition and updating of knowledge, to improve the prospects for stable employment and quality of workers and the competitive advantage of companies and the Spanish economy. To do this, the system must anticipate the needs of the productive fabric and form a support for innovative and competitive capacity of the company, from human resources quality.


II
The Law 51/1980, of October 8, Basic Employment, to regulate the Vocational Training Programme provided that the National Employment Institute established an annual program of occupational training, which free of charge, make sure the appropriate vocational training for those who would join the workforce or, being in it, pretendiesen retrain or achieve greater professional specialization, adopting permanent the National Plan for training and Integration through Royal Decree 1618/1990, of December 14 .

Royal Decree 631/1993, of 3 May, approving the National Plan of Training and Professional Integration is regulated, begins the separation of training for employed and unemployed, reordering actions occupational training and placing greater emphasis on professional reintegration of people unemployed. From that moment retraining of employed workers it is articulated through the various National Agreements on Continuous Training (signed in 1992, 1996 and 2000).

Royal Decree 1046/2003, of 1 August, approving the continuing training subsystem is regulated, launches a new management model of continuous training through a model based on bargaining autonomy It based on a regulatory framework that aims to provide the system with greater stability and security, not forgetting the role of social partners system. Meanwhile, occupational training continues to be regulated by Royal Decree 631/1993, of 3 May.

The Agreement on Vocational Training for Employment signed by the Government and the social partners on 7 February 2006 bet again for integrated training for employment model, which contribute to the advancement of training and lifelong learning in our country, keeping the pillars that have enabled its development in recent years, and trying to overcome the shortcomings of the model and enhance the elements to make further progress in achieving the objectives of training and reconcile greater competitiveness of enterprises with individual worker training.

Consequence of that agreement, and after thirteen years of existence of two different forms of vocational training in the workplace-the job training and the continuation, Royal Decree 395/2007, of 23 March, by which vocational training subsystem for employment is regulated, both subsystems integrated into a single model of professional training for employment and introduces improvements that allow you to tailor the training for the employed and unemployed to the new economic and social reality workers.

The subsystem of vocational training for employment is incorporated into the existing legal framework by Royal Decree Law 3/2011 of 18 February, on urgent measures to improve employability and reform of active employment policies that full amends Article 26 of Law 56/2003 of 16 December, Employment and establishes the general lines of the subsystem.

The Agreement proposals for tripartite negotiations to strengthen economic growth and employment, signed by the Government and the social partners on 29 July, includes a commitment to the development of specific measures in various fields, including the willingness to work to transform the system of vocational training for employment, on the basis of social dialogue.


III

The regulation under current law undertakes a comprehensive reform of the system ensuring the general interest and the necessary stability and coherence required by the system. In accordance with the provisions in the Agreement of July 29, 2014, this reform has four strategic objectives. Namely, the guarantee of the right to training of workers, employed and unemployed, in particular the most vulnerable; the effective contribution of training to business competitiveness; strengthening collective bargaining in the adequacy of the training to the requirements of the productive system, as well as efficiency and transparency in the management of public resources. Ultimately, it is in the production system to consolidate a culture of training and thereby encourage the creation of stable and quality employment.

The proposed reform is in tune with flexicurity policies promoted by the European Union based on the idea of ​​employability. The new model is developed taking into account the guidelines for the employment policies of the Member States. In addition, reform is one of the repeated targets in the National Reform Plan and the recommendations of the Council on the Stability Programme 2014 of Spain, in the sense of improving the effectiveness of active policies of the labor market so that appropriate training is provided and correspondence between demand and supply of employment is guaranteed.

It also takes into account the constitutional doctrine that the model of professional training for employment has a generic incardinación in the exclusive competence of the State's "labor law" (Article 149.1.7.ª of the Spanish Constitution ), but not excluded that there may be cases in which, depending on the type of activity that is oriented, the training remains linked to different government title, with consequences for the delimitation of the scope of competence of the State. And it adds that the impact can not be denied that in this area can have the Article 149.1.13 of the Spanish Constitution, which grants the State exclusive competence on bases and coordination of general planning economic activity, as there are aspects of vocational training, linked to the promotion of employment, which could find coverage in that article, but as the title of specific and complementary.

The new framework deepens the transformation that began the Law 3/2012, of 6 July, on urgent measures to reform the labor market. This marked the explicit recognition of an individual right to training of workers, endowed with a priority to training activities related to new technologies and internationalization of the company and allowed, for the first time, direct access to training centers funds available for management training schemes for workers so far were limited to business and trade unions.

Since then, on the basis of collaboration around the Sectoral Conference on Employment and Labour Affairs, there have been decisive progress in the field of activation policies for employment with the aim of improving the capacity of services public employment accompany the unemployed workers in their return process and boost employment opportunities for promotion and improvement of workers employed throughout his career.

The above collaboration has resulted in the Spanish Activation Strategy for Employment 2014-2016, which is the multiannual framework which institutionalizes measures to carry out, both from the Public State Employment Service as from public services regional employment, to achieve common objectives and a commitment to transparency, evaluation and results orientation.

Consistently with the aforementioned Strategy and thanks to joint work between administrations, have developed important measures, including in the field of public-private collaboration in labor mediation, the gradual transformation of the vocational training system for employment or within the framework of the Strategy for Entrepreneurship and youth employment 2013-2016, the creation of the youth Guarantee System to facilitate the access of young people under 25 in the labor market.


The reactivation of the Spanish economy and employment now require further activation measures in employment, particularly, in the field of vocational training for employment in the workplace.
IV


In order to address all the deficiencies identified in the system of vocational training for employment in the workplace and to comply with the objectives and principles agreed under the Social Dialogue, the law raises the reform of the training system vocational training for employment around the backbones described below.

Chapter I describes the purpose of the standard and established, along with the purposes of the system of vocational training for employment, this will apply throughout the national territory and respond to a coordinated, collaborative and cooperative action among the competent public authorities and other actors involved in it, respecting the framework of distribution of powers.

The inspiring principles contained in Article 3 define the system as a coherent planning framework, efficient implementation, monitoring and ongoing evaluation, with entities that impart vocational training for employment in the workplace and renewed quality of information instruments, monitoring and control. In this system also it highlights the protagonist of collective bargaining and social dialogue as essential tools to have a more effective and geared to meet the real needs of companies and workers system role.

This is consistent also with the financial unit of the system and its economic regime that guarantees the principle of unit share cash for vocational training.

The new legal framework requires also the amendment of Article 26 of Law 56/2003 of 16 December, Employment, to establish the outline of a new model of professional training for employment in the workplace, what it takes place in the fourth final provision.

Chapter II introduces a novel way, the elements of an efficient system of observation and exploration of the labor market, to detect changes in the demands of qualification and skills of the productive fabric.

It is necessary to correct a major inefficiencies identified in the system: the lack of adequate anticipation of needs and planning of training activity. The training provided should respond to a diagnosis of reality, an analysis of the current and future needs of companies and workers to meet their goals efficiently. To do this, the new system will leverage the potential of coordination of the various devices and agents doing analysis and survey of the labor market.

Thus, Article 5 provides for the development, involving, among others, the autonomous communities, business and labor organizations, organizations representing the self-employed and social economy, of a multiannual strategic scenario, concerning the scheduling of all the training undertaken in the system. Based on the aforementioned prospective analysis, this multiyear scenario strategic planning incorporate economic trends and forecasts and, together with the analysis of the qualifications of workers will identify targets priority attention, as well as indicators for evaluation, which will keep consistency with the Spanish Strategy for Employment Activation.

This scenario will also include an estimate multiyear projection of public funding to meet the real training needs of businesses and workers within a framework of stability of the system that favors certainty, anticipation and investment decisions.
Article 6
unequivocally introduces a competitive open to all accredited training providers and / or registered, as a general rule for managing funds to finance the training schedules of various public authorities.


This principle of competition, which has been introduced gradually in calls for subsidies in recent years, is set to cross basic feature of the management of funding from all relevant authorities in vocational training. This development also consistent results with the recommendations arising from the report of the Court of Auditors Control on the management of the Tripartite Foundation for Employment Training in connection with the subsystem of vocational training for employment on training offer, for the year 2010.

Furthermore, Article 6 provides for the possibility that public administrations, in their respective areas of competence, to articulate a "training check" for unemployed workers in order to provide them with the training they need. This is a new tool that will allow freedom of choice between adhering to specific devices that are developed for monitoring entities.

These efficiency improvements joins in simplifying access to funding in ways that allow, at the same time ensuring the quality of training. Hence the provision in Article 7 of this law to develop the concession regime and justification of grants, or other forms of financing, through modules, once market prices of the different training specialties identified.

Chapter III includes a new approach to vocational training initiatives for employment, placing the companies and workers in the center of the system. This law poses a new role of the training program the company for its own workers, called to be the main tool to provide an immediate response to the changing needs of the sector and strengthen its capacity for innovation, while needs are met adaptation, qualification and employability of workers. In the new model all companies involved to some extent with their own resources in financing the training of their workers.

Article 10 provides that the various administrations in their respective areas of competence and matters not covered in the scope of the company will complete the training offer their own programming for employed workers, in which business and labor organizations shall cease to hold training plans, although they participate in its design, programming and broadcasting.

Detection needs will take into account the aforementioned multi-annual and with the participation of business and unions scenario, organizations representing autonomous and intersectoral social economy and few organizations or entities with proven experience in the matter decided by the competent authorities.

In addition, the competent authorities also scheduled training for unemployed workers under the provisions of Article 11, which will add an important role especially the work of public employment services, which must identify profiles and individual itineraries and personalized employment of beneficiaries, according to the innovations introduced by the Spanish Strategy for employment Activation.

In all the above initiatives, the online training potency against traditional distance training, which is suppressed, consistent with the evolution of new technologies and the guarantees offered range and quality of training.

Training institutions accredited and / or registered, both public and private, in addition to its role of training providers will be jointly responsible for monitoring the learning and evaluation. Among the entities that will provide training for employment companies developing training activities for their own employees as well as workers of their group or enterprise network, or unemployed, either with commitment to hiring or other agreement with Utilities are included Employment. To do this, they may use their own means or resort to hiring, provided they are suitable for this purpose.


Chapter IV contains the new provisions related to control training and disciplinary system, in order to guarantee the principle of zero tolerance against fraud in the management of funds for vocational training for employment. This requires modifying the revised text of the Law on Offences and Sanctions in the Social Order, approved by Royal Legislative Decree 5/2000 of 4 August, in different aspects to successfully prevent and correct situations of malpractice, which it is carried out in the final third arrangement.

On the one hand, the parties responsible to include training institutions and assume the organization of training scheduled by companies expand. Also, in order to adapt to current legislation and social reality, existing offenders types are modified, new types as breach of the prohibition of subcontracts, which is classified as very serious infringements are created and finally , it requires greater administrative reproach when considering an infringement by each company and training activity.

On the other hand, the joint responsibility of the subjects involved in the fraudulent obtaining grants, subsidies and bonuses and penalties, so that the beneficiaries of the system of vocational training for employment can not return to stiffen set be for a period of 5 years for committing a very serious offense.

Finally and to ensure a strengthening of control and sanctioning capacity it provides for the establishment of a Special Inspection Unit within the Special Directorate attached to the Central Authority of the Inspectorate of Labour and Social Security.

This law contained in Chapter V the implementation of an integrated information system to ensure traceability of the training and comparability, consistency and continuous updating of all information on vocational training for employment is carried out in different areas of competence.

This integrated system will develop three key instruments of outreach, quality assurance and transparency to the system referred to in Article 20: Training Account, accompanying the worker throughout his career in order to accredit their training history and guiding the training offered to increase their employability; Specialty Catalog Formativas, which will benchmark common of all the training offer to be scheduled for the employed and unemployed and will be continuously updated; and the State Register of Training Institutions, public, the results of audits or quality controls that are made to such entities are incorporated.

From the hand of the best information systems, a commitment to ongoing assessment and in all phases of the training process is introduced. The emphasis of the evaluation is in the quality and the actual impact of training in terms of improved performance on the job or insertion of workers. Will these results to improve the decision making about the adequacy of the training to market needs and efficiency of economic and media resources used actions.

Along with these assessments, quality audits of entities that practical training and its results will be made public, so that businesses, workers and administrations have all the information possible in a more transparent system will be made.


Finally, chapter VI refers to the governance of the system and defines a new role for the various actors and bodies involved in the government system, by transforming the aforementioned governing bodies and, in particular, the Tripartite Foundation for Employment Training in which the representation of the General State Administration must be majority. The role of social partners in the system is subject to changes in draft: leadership and the role of the most representative in the strategic design, planning, programming, distribution, control, monitoring and evaluation of trade unions and employers organizations drives vocational training for employment, especially in the targeted workers busy. This is to make the best use of the experience and knowledge that can bring its proximity to the productive fabric through a contribution representing, in fact, one of the great strengths of the new system of vocational training for employment, while promoted different spaces and forms of participation and collaboration of other social actors.

Consistent with this new role and to changes in the system and operated from the labor reform February 2012, social partners fail to participate in fund management and the delivery of training as they did to date, leaving this role to entities that provide vocational training and develop this task in a more competitive environment.

The law is completed with twelve additional provisions, four transitory, a derogatory and ten finishes.

The tenth additional provision contains limits on prepayments.

The eleventh additional provision provides for financing of measures to promote employment in 2015.

The transformation of vocational training model for employment does not end with the adoption of this law. In its development a new royal decree and a ministerial order to repeal all the existing legal framework, established by Royal Decree 395/2007 of 23 March, the subsystem of vocational training for employment regulation will be adopted, and all the regulations that govern them.


However, this subsequent regulatory development should not delay the implementation of the essential elements of the new model of professional training for employment described above, which shall apply from the entry into force of this law.

Therefore, the first transitional provision states that the Royal Decree 395/2007, of March 23, and its implementing regulations will remain in effect, only those aspects that can not be directly applied the provisions in this law until it is not developed regulations as provided therein, detailing the forecasts themselves be directly applied for legal certainty.

V


The reform of the Vocational Training System for Employment in the workplace is urgent in the economic and labor context in which we find ourselves, in order to accelerate the potentially beneficial effects of this reform may have in terms of creation employment, at the present time recovery of the Spanish economy.

The formation has a decisive impact on employment. In fact, jobs lost during the recent economic recession has been mostly in low-level occupations training. Between 2007 and 2013 more than half of the workers who had not passed primary education lost their jobs. Instead, the number of employed with higher education increased by 2 percent.


The training deficiencies have a negative impact on quantifiable employment opportunities for workers: people with lower levels of basic skills are exposed to nearly twice as likely to be unemployed with the economic and social loss involved (PIAAC Report , 2010).

Despite the GDP growth during the last six quarters and the recovery observed employment, training remain important differences between the unemployed require specific and forceful response. According to the latest data from the Labour Force Survey, for the fourth quarter of 2014, the unemployment rate of those with only primary education (38.07 percent) is 2.7 times higher than that of those with higher education (14 , 29 percent). 54 percent of the unemployed has not gone beyond secondary education.

Also a differential impact of educational level is observed in the time spent in unemployment of all unemployed workers seeking a job for two years, at least, 60 percent have not completed education high school. Nearly 70 percent of unemployed workers who only have primary education have been in this situation for more than a year, 15 points above that observed among workers with higher education.

So, it is essential to undertake the reform of vocational training for employment to prevent a significant portion of our workforce is perpetuated unemployed (14.6 percent of long-term unemployment in the fourth quarter of 2014 , more than twice the EU average), with severe social and economic consequences that this entails in the long run. It is accelerate their return to work with the best guarantees and amplify, thus the impact of the expected economic recovery (2 percent GDP growth in 2015) on the labor market.

On the other hand, also the quality of the training received by employed workers is decisive for economic recovery and employment: training helps to increase worker productivity, its ability to innovate and accommodate technological changes. This results in the increased competitiveness of companies and the Spanish economy. It also favors lower labor turnover and increased job stability.

Therefore, the immediate implementation of the new system of vocational training for employment will contribute in the short term, to multiply the positive effects of the economic situation and expected employment in 2015 and 2016.

Finally, the regulation of the new model of professional training for employment is accompanied by a new regime of offenses and penalties.

The need for reform was evident also in the agreement for tripartite negotiation proposals to strengthen economic growth and employment, July 29 already mentioned. The Government and the social partners in the Agreement state that economic recovery requires transformation model to improve the training of workers and contribute to the competitiveness of Spanish companies, while must overcome the current mismatch of skills in Spain not to lose employment opportunities that will arise in Europe in the coming years.

Therefore, all parties agreed to the new model was operating and it does apply to the entire system of vocational training for employment in the workplace from 1 January 2015.

This rule has taken into account also two very recent events that explore the need for definitive reform. On the one hand, it imposes resolve the inefficiencies of the current model of vocational training for employment who have shown in recent audit reports prepared by management of the Court of Auditors. On the other, the doctrine of the Constitutional Court contained in its recent judgments on the rules in this matter of December 15, 2014, the most recent, allows the government to undertake now an integral reform of vocational training for employment arising under the constitutional framework of distribution of powers between the state and the autonomous communities, thereby ensuring the necessary stability and coherence required by the system.


The need for competent government may already apply in the exercise 2015 the provisions and measures introduced by this regulation to correct the serious inefficiencies and weaknesses identified, without jeopardizing continuity in the provision of training services requiring workers and companies, especially in a situation like that described requires speed.
