  • The Dualiza Challenge held by the Bankia Foundation, the Bertelsmann Foundation, CEIM Confederación Empresarial de Madrid CEOE, Gredos San Diego Cooperative and Alianza para la FP Dual awards vocational training projects in the Community of Madrid
  • The projects, developed at companies such as Heineken, SGS and Getronics, are actually implemented in companies

The Bankia Foundation for Dual Training in collaboration with the Bertelsmann Foundation, CEIM Confederación Empresarial de Madrid-CEOE, Gredos San Diego Cooperative and the Alianza para la FP Dual handed out awards this Friday to the nine dual vocational training projects by students who have participated in the Dualiza Challenge, which started at the beginning of the year.

The projects have been rewarded for their innovative capacity in various areas, for their analysis of corporate needs or for their dedication to social aspects.

The assistant general director of Communication and External Relations at Bankia, Amalia Blanco, underlined that projects like this are possible thanks to the commitment that Bankia has with the promotion of education as a way of improving society, and the promotion of vocational training and its dual branch as tools to improve the employability of students and their competitiveness".

For her part, the director of Training of CEIM, Sara Molero, mentioned the value of teachers, "without committed teachers there would be no learning, no professional training, no innovation, and it an initiative like the Dualiza Challenge would not be possible".

Finally, Clara Bassols, director of the Bertelsmann Foundation, stressed the importance of joining forces between different institutions "to create activities that add value to Dual Vocational Training, as is the case of the Dualiza Challenge".

In the current edition, nine teams have participated. Heineken, SGS, Getronics, Renault Trucks, Laboratorios Antakira, Escuela Creativa La Gavia, ADISGUA and Gustum Areas have all participated in this edition along with the schools GSD Buitrago, GSD Guadarrama, GSD Las Suertes, IES Clara del Rey, CIFP Raúl Vázquez and IES Virgen de La Paloma.

Each of the projects has improved the learning experience of Dual Vocational Training students from the higher levels of Administration and Finance; Administration of Information Systems and Networks; Sports and Physical Activities Monitor; Pre-primary Education; Automotive; Analysis and Quality Control Laboratory; Development of Multi-platform Applications; and Occupational Risk Prevention.

The Dualiza Bankia Challenge is a project that seeks to drive improvement and innovation processes that start with dual vocational training students from the Community of Madrid with the aim of establishing a real presence in the participating companies.

To do this, students form teams with professionals and teachers, and have been working since the beginning of the year, accompanied by innovation experts at Bankia, to design the idea, its development and its implementation. In fact, the Challenge is the only innovation event for Dual Vocational Training held in Spain in which the main players in dual vocational training joined forces for several months to find innovative improvement in the companies that take part either in production processes, logistics, marketing, or management.

Many of these improvements are actually implemented in companies.
