The alternating training contract is a type of employment contract regulated in Article 11.2 of the Workers’ Statute.

This type of contract, which is gaining popularity after the labor reform of 2022 and which gives greater weight to indefinite-term contracts, is intended to make paid work activity compatible with the corresponding training processes. This combination of study and work allows the development of specific skills of the sector in which the employees will work, increasing the possibilities of labor insertion once the contract has ended.

We must bear in mind that this modality benefits the company by providing qualified and motivated personnel, which is committed to providing the necessary training, while the employee is responsible for fulfilling the assigned tasks and following the established training plan.

It is essential that the formalization of the contract and the annex relating to the collaboration agreement signed with the training center comply with the requirements and regulations established by the State Public Employment Service.
