  • The project was selected in the second edition of the Dualiza Call
  • Up to 60 teachers could improve their training thanks to the initiative

Dualiza Bankia -the brand through which the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training channels all its activities to promote vocational training and its dual modality-, the national association of schools FPEmpresa, the Regional Government of Andalucía and the Chamber of Commerce of Granada participated in the presentation of the Forma Profes project, selected in the Second Dualiza Call. The event took place at Bankia's headquarters in Granada.

Forma Profes is a project launched by six schools in the province of Granada (IES Cartuja, Atlántica CIDEP, CE Ave María San Cristóbal, CPIFP Aynadamar, IES Acci and IES La Zafra) to improve the training of their teachers by bringing them closer to the business world.

The schools select companies that develop pioneering and innovative techniques, where teachers are referred to for a short period of time in order to learn and teach them to their students. Specifically, the sponsors of the initiative trust that up to 60 teachers will benefit from it.

The head of external relations and communication at Bankia for Andalucía, José Antonio González Morales, underlined how this initiative is part of "Bankia's commitment to boosting education and to the Granada region, pillars of this project". González Morales recalled that "Dualiza Bankia has already started several projects in Granada: foreign trade courses, digital skills courses, vocational training projects for the IES Cartuja and IES La Zafra high schools... All with the aim of improving student training and employability, which is the goal of the Forma Profes project".

For his part, Antonio Jesús Castillo García, territorial delegate for Education, Sports, Equality and Social Policies, highlighted the relevance of "the network created by the IES Cartuja high school, whose managers have been able to unite public education entities and private entities in a single project, as well as business entities, all of which are also located in various parts of the province. It is a model to be followed for future projects. Education cannot remain behind in the creation of networks, beyond its own classrooms". Castillo García also congratulated the creators of the project for "starting something that, without a doubt, will be beneficial for our students and, ultimately, for the business fabric".

One of the representatives of FPEmpresa, teacher Javier Serrano Castilla, of IES La Zafra, highlighted how "the importance of this project is that it will allow people to talk about vocational training in Grenada, about the involvement of centres and companies, and above all, about the idea of updating the latest techniques to take them to the classroom and to provide more professional training to our students".
