We foster training and support for entrepreneurship. Through CaixaBank Dualiza, we promote Dual Vocational Training as a way to generate employment and social improvements.

CaixaBank is firmly committed to generating value and economic growth in the areas in which it operates. Through initiatives and programmes that promote training, employment and entrepreneurship, we contribute to the sustainable development of the communities in which we have a presence. From CaixaBank Dualiza we contribute to meeting these objectives by promoting Vocational Training and its dual education system, with the knowledge that this training mode is the key pathway to our future, by improving the employability of young people and the competitiveness of companies.


Promotion of Dual Vocational Training, dual training and continuous training as a driving force for employment and social improvement.

Development of modern and effective systems for carrying out Dual Vocational Training.

We do this with programmes such as the Call for Dualiza Grants, designed to develop learning skills through practical training in a training centre and in the workplace. Many of these projects have a real impact in the areas where they are carried out by contributing to local wealth and helping to maintain the population.
