On the 4th and 5th October, Pilar Pineda and Anna Ciraso participated in the III Forum of the Alliance for Dual VET, co-organized by the Bertelsmann Foundation and the Bankia Foundation in Valencia. With more than 300 participants from companies, schools and institutions, it was a unique opportunity to exchange experiences, knowledge, visions and discuss future perspectives of dual VET among many of the actors involved.
La Alianza para la Formación Profesional Dual es una red estatal de empresas, centros e instituciones comprometidas con el desarrollo de la FP Dual en España, impulsada por la Fundación Bertelsmann, conjuntamente con la Fundación Princesa de Girona, la CEOE y la Cámara de Comercio de España.
The Alliance for Dual Vocational Training is a Spanish state-wide network of companies, centers and organizations committed to the development of dual VET in Spain, which promoted by the Bertelsmann Foundation, together with the Princesa de Girona Foundation, CEOE (Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations) and the Chamber of Commerce of Spain.
In the framework of the Forum, Pilar Pineda had the opportunity to publicly present the report of the study "Dual VET in Schools: Visions of Teachers" by the EFI Group (in this case, Pilar Pineda, Laura Arnau and Anna Ciraso), promoted by the Working Group of "Schools" of the Alliance. The executive report is available on the Publications page of the Bertelsmann Foundation website.
In addition, Bárbara Veiga from Aldi presented the battery of criteria for the quality of dual VET programmes, designed by the Working Group "Quality" of the Alliance and advised methodologically by EFI Group during the creation and validation process. The battery, still in a provisional stage before validating the standards, can be consulted in the same link.
