  • The event was attended by the director of Bankia Foundation for Dual Training, Juan Carlos Lauder, Bankia’s retail manager for the Levante, Carlos Aguilera, the president of CEV, Salvador Navarro, and the president of CEV Valencia, Eva Blasco.

Bankia Foundation for Dual Training and the Confederación Empresarial de la Comunitat Valenciana (CEV) signed an agreement today to support Vocational Training and Dual Vocational Training with the goal of improving the employment prospects of workers.

The official signing ceremony was attended by the director of Bankia Foundation for Dual Training, Juan Carlos Lauder, Bankia’s retail manager for the Levante, Carlos Aguilera, the president of CEV, Salvador Navarro, and the president of Comisión de Formación, Educación y Gestión Conocimiento de la CEV, Leonor Sáiz. 

Aguilera said he was pleased to be a party to an agreement that reflects two of Bankia’s core values, namely the commitment to drive education and employability through better training. He said that only through this commitment can the organisation contribute to the achieving a better educated and more cohesive society. And he highlighted the work done in this regard by Fundación Bankia in the Comunidad Valenciana where the Foundation has undertaken projects for additional training in foreign trade, COMEX, in digital skills (DITEC) and where it runs scholarship programmes to include vocational training in clinical research and biomedical research. 

The president of CEV stressed the importance of training as a key factor to boost the competitiveness of companies in the Comunidad Valenciana. He mentioned the need for closer collaboration between the worlds of business and academia to build a vocational training scheme that meets companies’ and the markets’ changing needs. And he emphasised the advantages of dual training in this regard.

The agreement establishes four lines of action focused on: 

  • Improving dissemination and assessment of vocational and dual vocational training.
  • It supports companies to innovate, find apprenticeship positions, design training programmes or train tutors to drive dual projects.
  • Implementation of training projects with learning in the work environment.
  • Development of the professional qualification to improve corporate competitiveness and stable employment.

This work is supported by a recent study published by Bankia Foundation in collaboration with Valencia University and the Government of Valencia entitled "Vocational Training in the Community of Valencia, situation and guidelines: territorial vision", which underlines the need to offer more vocational training and direct training options in more technical sectors.

The report also underlines the importance of vocational training to addressing one of the country's major problems: depopulation.
