On the 3rd of July, the director of the Escola Eduard Rodés met with Francisco Cuartero, the CEO of Butransa Spain to cement their collaboration in the Forma’t al Port program. The program, sponsored by the Port of Barcelona, Barcelona-Catalunya Logistics Center, the Provincial Council of Barcelona (Diputació de Barcelona) and the Escola Europea, has completed the first semester of its second triennium (2018-2020).
The program, through which the port community approaches students of Transport and Logistics, and International Trade, ended the year 2017 with a record high participation rate. 419 students had had contact with the Port of Barcelona and the business in its community, compared to 2016’s 114 students.
The courses organised under the umbrella of Forma’t al Port encourage the incorporation of students into dual training schemes within the businesses of the sector, with the overall goal of helping to prepare a future logistics community that is able to meet the strategic challenges of the Catalan region.
Forma’t al Port has taken a break for the summer and will return in the autumn with fresh courses for local high school students. There are two Management courses scheduled in October and November respectively, set to take place both in Barcelona and Genova.
Thanks to its brilliant results, the program continues with the goal of helping position Barcelona and Catalonia in the first line of logistics activities in Europe and the world.
