  • The meeting was organized by Dualiza Bankia -the brand through which the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training channels all its activities to promote vocational training-, the FPempresa association and the Regional Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of Castilla La Mancha.
  • The meeting focused on the promotion of dual vocational training in the agricultural, livestock, industrial, food, computer and renewable energy sectors.

Nearly 80 participants took part in the first Dualiza Meeting held in Albacete by Dualiza Bankia and FP Empresa in collaboration with the regional ministries of Education, Culture and Sports and Agriculture, Environment and Rural Development of Castilla la Mancha, to analyse the current status of Vocational Training and its dual modality in the region and find ways to promote it, as well as to foster relations between schools and companies.

The meeting has focused on the agricultural, livestock, industrial, food, computer and renewable energy sectors. All of these are key to the development of the region and to the future of employment.

The head of projects of the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training, Juan Carlos Lauder, underlined "the importance of events like this one to help foster relations between schools and companies, which contribute to training future professionals who respond to the needs of the job market of tomorrow". He recalled that "this is one of the main objectives of the activity that Dualiza Bankia, Bankia Foundation’s brand for Dual Training, is developing in Castilla-La Mancha, where it has already started up complementary training courses in foreign trade and digital skills along with supporting the projects of various vocational training centres through the Dualiza Call for Aid".

For his part, the Regional Minister of Education, Culture and Sports, Ángel Felpeto, stressed that collaboration between companies and schools is essential to develop projects that improve the qualification of students and their integration into the job market, thus favouring specialization tailored to the profile required by businesses.

"In the province of Albacete there are many Dual Vocational Training projects thanks to the involvement of schools, the vocational training staff of the Provincial Directorate, companies in the area and, especially, business associations", said the regional minister. "The Bankia Foundation for Dual Training has actively collaborated in financing some of the projects," he added.

The Dualiza Meetings seek to close the gap between different sectors with the aim of finding ways of working together through Dual Vocational Training. In 2018 alone, Dualiza Bankia and FPempresa held meetings in Las Palmas, Tenerife, Badajoz and Granada. Many of these meetings have provided an introduction to dual training for people who were not familiar with it and have served to carry out joint collaboration projects.

Bankia and the Caja Castellón Foundation have launched the 'Call for Social Action 2019' for the fifth consecutive year, 100,000 euros to support social projects in the province, with special attention paid to projects that promote employment.

The call for aid from the Caja Castellón Foundation and Bankia is aimed at non-profit organisations that carry out their activity in the province and whose projects are focused on training and guidance aimed at employment, rural development or improvement of the quality of life of people with disabilities or other groups at risk of social exclusion.

Applicant entities can register through the Fundación Caja Castellón website and the Bankia en acción website and submit their application online. Projects can be submitted between March 1 and March 29.

The entities and projects selected in the 'Call for Social Action 2019' will be announced in June.

Last year's edition supported 39 projects that have benefited more than 6,917 people in vulnerable situations.

Signature of the annual agreement

This call is the main initiative in the annual agreement signed this Friday by the president of the Caja Castellón Foundation, José Quereda; Bankia’s Castellón South Area Director, Vicente Miralles; and the coordinator of the General Direction of Communication in the Valencian Community of Bankia, Isabel Rubio.

Bankia gives 65,000 euros to the Caja Castellón Foundation this year with the aim of supporting programmes by associations and foundations for social purposes in the province that will be managed jointly by both entities.

Bankia’s Castellón South area director underlined that "with the signing of this agreement, Bankia maintains its commitment to Castellón and channels part of its social responsibility lines through the Caja Castellón Foundation". "With this agreement, we continue with our objective of bringing our social action closer to launch local projects that improve the daily life of the citizens in the province”, Navarro pointed out.

The president of the Caja Castellón Foundation said that "this is the result of the understanding of two institutions such as the Caja Castellón Foundation and Bankia, which have been collaborating for five years in the creation of this program that allows the support of different social and welfare projects".

"We contribute our little grain of sand and we undertake the promotion of the important work carried out by the associations of our province on a daily basis and, in addition, we give visibility to their work," said Quereda.

The agreement also includes the start-up in the next few weeks of an environmental impact program in the province of Castellón.

Bankia

Bankia consolidates and reinforces its commitment to society through five priority lines of social action: employment and training, housing, local and rural development, disability and the environment. The financial institution focuses its social investment on these areas and maintains its commitment to society through the involvement of its entire structure and professionals. The Corporate Social Responsibility policy is all-encompassing and approachable, as it links the social actions of the bank with its business in the areas in which the professionals themselves find socio-economic problems and vulnerable groups.

Caja Castellón Foundation

The mission of Caja Castellón Foundation is to carry out and promote all kinds of activities of general and particular interest, research, education, culture, environment, health, social assistance, as well as any other that respond to the needs of society. These goals achieved through various activities, managed by its own centres or collaborating to maintain the activities carried out in external centres.
