The Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, is bringing again financial education closer to students of Advanced Vocational Training (Ciclos Formativos de Grado Superior). In particular, pupils will receive information about the different products and services that they already use or will use in the future.

 

Initially, the second edition of the 2nd Conferences on Financial Education for Advanced Vocational Training will be held in Malaga until March, although centers from other provinces may join this initiative.

 

The goal is to provide these students with a clear view of the financial world, paying special attention to the financial products and services that they use or will use in the future.

 

The lectures can be adapted to focus on those financial products and services demanded by the educational centers, as many of the students attending this event are enrolled in courses related to economics and finance.

 

In particular, the 2nd Conferences on Financial Education for Advanced Vocational Training Students will teach pupils the key features of the Edufinet Project and of finance, paying special attention to different products and services, such as deposits and means of payment, fixed and variable income, mutual funds, pension plans, insurances, loans, credit account, commercial discount, leasing, renting or factoring.

 

In sum, the aim of this new edition of the conferences is to continue promoting a simple financial education, based on daily life elements, so as to provide students with the skills required for their day-to-day use.

 

This initiative adds to the 10th Conferences on Financial Education for Young People, aimed at Secondary Education (ESO) and Baccalaureate students in Andalusia, Castilla-La Mancha, Castilla y León, Extremadura, Madrid and Ceuta and Melilla. The lectures are linked to the 10th Financial Olympics, a school competition where students can show what they have learnt.
