The first Dualiza call for grants, promoted by Fundación Bankia por la Formación Dual (Bankia Dual Education Foundation) and the National Association of Vocational Training Centres (FPempresa), has closed with 269 projects submitted, each bidding for a share of the total of 200,000 euros on offer. Each winning proposal may receive up to a maximum of 20,000 euros.

The purpose of the Dualiza grants is to promote vocational training initiatives that drive joint projects between schools and companies, as well as to recognise the work done by schools, companies and other institutions that have helped develop and improve dual education.

The projects are submitted by public and private vocational training schools in Spain, jointly with companies and other collaborating institutions, and will be judged on criteria of quality and innovation, impact and sustainability, and diversity.

The announcement of the chosen projects, initially planned for 4 April, will be made in the next few weeks, due to the quality of the projects and the high level of participation. The two institutions that issued the call are considering increasing the initial amount of 200,000 euros to meet the large number and high quality of proposals received.

"The strong interest in the call clearly shows the increasing penetration of dual vocational training in our country. With these actions we would like to increase awareness and knowledge of dual education. We also aim to promote spaces in which schools and companies can work together co-creatively," said the director of Fundación Bankia por la Formación Dual, Mercedes Chacón.

The president of FPempresa, Luis García Domínguez, said that "with their massive response to this call, Spain's dual vocational training schools have demonstrated that they are open to change, innovation and collaboration with local companies".

Full, up-to-date details of the timetable of the first Dualiza call for applications are available from this link.

Dualiza, Bankia's dual education initiative

The first call for applications for Dualiza grants is part of Bankia's support for dual education as a driver of employability and innovation in the world of work, with the aim of making businesses more competitive and speeding up the transformation of the education system as it continually updates to meet the needs of the new economy and of companies.

The bank channels this support through Dualiza, a programme designed to foster, develop and give greater visibility to dual vocational training, so as to increase its value to society as a driver of employability.

FPempresa

The association FPempresa is a meeting point for vocational schools that want to build relations with the world of business, create a schools network for sharing experiences, projects and good practices, and contribute to the development and strengthening of the vocational education system in Spain.

The association aspires to set standards at all levels - for institutions, social organisations and schools - giving the schools a voice to communicate their vision of the present and future of vocational training to society.
