Vocational Education is viewed as a fundamental type of education that can help to resolve situations of unemployment. The bank helps to educate numerous young people through various vocational education and internship projects, helping them to obtain a professional qualification and employment experience according to the needs of companies. In 2015, the bank supported 75 financial management and educational training actions, and 20 vocational education and internship actions, which involved 850 people.

The bank carries out actions at a local and national level in collaboration with education centres, companies, regional governments and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. Bankia has -or has had- support for this type of social action from different governmental institutions such as the regional governments of Madrid, Galicia, Extremadura, Murcia, Cantabria, Castilla y León, Castilla-La Mancha, La Rioja, Cataluña and Valencia.

The different projects launched include the creation of an Administration and Finance Higher Qualification cycle in collaboration with official education centres in the Region of Madrid and the Region of Valencia; and a pioneering course in Spanish banking that will train 150 young people to work in portfolio management (SMEs, private banking and business banking) and multichannel banking.

Bankia also launched the DUAL+ Knowledge and Innovation Centre in collaboration with Fundación Bertelsmann, which seeks to create space for analysis and agreements that lead to vocational education and internship projects.

Bankia Foundation for Dual Education

In 2016, the bank went a step further in institutionalising its commitment in this field by creating the Bankia Foundation for Dual Education. The main purposes of this foundation are:

  • To foster, promote and spread dual education as a driver of the employability and of the competitiveness and transformation of Spain’s manufacturing base in general.
  • To collaborate in implementing dual education in the education system, in coordination with government authorities, schools, companies and business associations.
  • To drive research and innovation in dual education.
  • To provide professional, academic and personal guidance to young people and others in search of employment, fostering the entrepreneurial spirit.
