  • 7 key sectors of La Rioja's economy have been present
  • The director of the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training, Juan Carlos Lauder, underlined that this meeting “is part of the commitment that, from Dualiza Bankia, we have with education and with La Rioja”

More than 70 people attended the first Dualiza Encounter organised in Logroño by the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training - through its Dualiza Bankia brand - and the national association of FPEmpresa centres, together with the Federation of Entrepreneurs of La Rioja and the regional government.

The director of the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training, Juan Carlos Lauder, underlined that “this Dualiza Meeting is part of the commitment that, from Dualiza Bankia, we have with education and with this region. We firmly believe that a boost to Vocational Training and its dual modality will contribute to greater social cohesion and we want to continue working to achieve this”.

The General Director of Education of the Government of La Rioja, Miguel Ángel Fernández, wanted to thank both Dualiza Bankia and FPEmpresa for their cooperation and encouraged both institutions to continue their support to the region.

For his part, the chairman of FER, Jaime García Calzada, stressed that “vocational training and dual vocational training are a response to the needs of the labour market, which usually evolves very quickly, and therefore vocational training must be in constant evolution, with cycles that respond to this demand, to these increasingly specialised profiles. We want an open, flexible education system, close to companies and permanently adapted to the reality of the economic and business sectors”.

The event, held at the Think Tic, seeks to analyse the strengths and weaknesses of Dual Vocational Training in La Rioja with the aim of seeing how it can be promoted, getting more centres and more companies to collaborate in its promotion, and discovering which are the keys to achieving a model of excellence that is sustainable over time.

To do so, companies belonging to 7 key sectors in the economy of La Rioja (IT, automotive, mechanical manufacturing, renewable energy, graphic arts, installation and maintenance, and electricity and electronics) and a dozen educational centres have exposed the main obstacles encountered and have posed their doubts when implementing the dual.
