The vice-president and treasurer of the FPEmpresa VET Schools Association, Tomás Alonso, attended on the 9th of December the closing ceremony of the European Project for the Improvement of the Quality of Dual VET in Spain, in which the Association has participated carrying out consultative work as one of the key social agents in this educational area.

During the event, the Ministry of Education and Vocational Education and Training has presented the publication titled 102 Good Practices of Dual VET, a document that aims to serve as an example and inspiration for all the actors involved in this training field.

“This compilation of good practices and their dissemination and exchange among all the interested parties represents, without a doubt, one of the fundamental pillars on which the improvement of Vocational Education and Training is based”, Alonso highlights.

After the inauguration by Nathalie Berger, the Director of Support for Reform in the Member States (REFORM) of the European Commission, a round table was held to exchange good practices in Dual VET implemented in different Spanish Autonomous Regions. Finally, it was the Spanish General Secretary for Vocational Education and Training, Clara Sanz, who gave the closing speech and took the opportunity to share with the attendees some of the most relevant points of the new piece of Spanish legislation on VET.

The project, promoted by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Vocational Education and Training, has received technical support and funding from the European Commission (DG REFORM), through the Support Program for Structural Reforms, as well as technical assistance from the Bertelsmann Foundation.
