Dual Training Programmes in Bankia

Start of main content

Bankia continues to be committed to using vocational education and dual training as levers for transforming the education system and promoting employment among young people, which it is implementing through its pioneering initiative now in its second year, making Bankia the first Spanish financial institution to implement its own dual training project.

The Bankia Dual Training project was launched in 2015 to provide students taking the Higher Course in Administration and Finance with highly practical training as financial institution account managers. Its objective is to convert these students into professionals that are equipped with the skills required by the labour market and give them experience that will significantly boost their employment prospects.

The first year of the Bankia Dual Training programme was launched in four education centres in the regions of Madrid and Valencia. The two centres in Madrid belonged to the Cooperativa Gredos San Diego (Buitrago and Las Suertes) while the two in Valencia were CIPFP Mislata and Florida Centre de Formació Cooperativa Valenciana. A total of 44 students received training at their own education centres, in Bankia's classrooms and in the bank's retail branches and business centres, where they were fully integrated with the different professional teams, dealing with all of their challenges and objectives. The students also spent time at the bank's "Connect with your expert" centres, part of the multichannel business department. They received a total of 11 months of training at their centres and nine months in Bankia, where they were paid a monthly grant of 520 euros.

Study program | Second year

June 2017 marked the culmination of the first intake of students and the start of the second, in collaboration with the same education centres and a strong commitment to surpass the high levels of satisfaction achieved by students, educators and Bankia personnel.

As for the first intake, Bankia's involvement in the project will be company-wide and will include advice for faculty staff at the education centres, the design of the student training plan in conjunction with these centres, and provision of a wide range of training activities provided by the bank's professionals.

The tutors appointed by the bank, which once again will be the managers of the branches where the students will be based, will play an especially important role. They will be responsible for integrating students among their teams and their involvement in the bank's production process, guiding them during their time at their branches, coordinating the learning process with the education centres and assessing their progress, leading to their final evaluation.
