Fernando Ramírez, Director of Human Resources at Navantia, together with Clara Bassols, Director of the Bertelsmann Foundation, signed a membership document today whereby the company joins the Dual Vocational Training Alliance. This means that the Alliance now has 1,300 members.
The Alliance is an initiative promoted since 2015 by the Bertelsmann Foundation, the Princess of Girona Foundation, the Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations (CEOE) and the Spanish Chamber of Commerce, and is a state network of companies, education centres and institutions, with 1,300 members, whose objective is to enhance Dual Vocational Training in Spain.
As part of Navantia’s policy of creating quality employment, the company seeks to increase these collaborations in order to help apprentices to gain further insight into the sector, improve their professional qualifications and enable these young people to join the labour market.
Fernando Ramírez has guaranteed at an event that “programmes that include both training and practical apprenticeship at companies, guarantee a better qualification that is essential for the industry’s future”.
Clara Bassols highlighted that “we are delighted that the Alliance has reached 1,300 members and that Navantia has become that 1,300th member. Company involvement is an essential part of the model for helping young people to become initiated in the labour market”.
