“Our experience with EDU students has been very positive. In Siemens Spain, more than 300 students have passed the company’s dual training programme in three languages (German, Spanish and English). Many of them occupy management positions at Siemens SA, Siemens Europe and our head office.
This allows us to attract young talents and have a young, well prepared staff that is trained in Siemens values.”
Juan Diego Pérez Mata

“In Media Markt we have a social commitment to the integration of young people into the workforce.
This learning method allows students to combine theoretical and practical training, i.e., school-based theoretical training alternates with internships in stores or central services of Media Markt, allowing them to integrate 100% in our workforce and contribute with valuable training projects. We are very proud of the results and have a high percentage of students who then continue to work in our company.”

“The programme provides students with a perfect combination of theory and practice that makes integration into the work environment much easier, developing talented staff that companies want to preserve and advance.”

“At Bertelsmann, which has been present on the Spanish market for more than 50 years, we have been integrating young people from the dual EDU study course since the school was founded in Barcelona. It is part of our company’s DNA to contribute to the education of young people. Many of our managers and professionals have passed through FEDA, and several executives now working elsewhere have completed their study programs in our company. We have actively participated in the program’s evolution over the last few years, so we feel like a part of the EDU family.
We are proud of the contribution we make in young people’s education and enjoy seeing them develop and learn how a company operates, acquire skills and find their career path, while at the same time bringing a breath of fresh air, new ideas and regeneration to our company.”
