More than 40 trainers of Unicaja Edufinet Project have got a financial certificate from Instituto BME (Bolsas y Mercados Españoles, Spanish Stock Exchange and Markets), after completing a course given by Edufinet and Escuela Superior de Estudios de Empresa IMF (ESESA IMF). 98% of the students who took the certification exam online passed it, after successfully passing a prior final assessment as part of this training activity.

 

50 volunteers of Edufinet financial education Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, have participated in this course, in order to gain further knowledge and to improve their skills as trainers in economics and financing, thus covering the recommendations of the Financial Education Plan’s good governance code.

 

The course, developed also with the collaboration of the Funcas Educa Programme, included two blocks: a practical one, given in person prior to the declaration of the pandemic, and a theoretical one, given online, with a total duration of 200 hours. With the course, Edufinet trainers have gained further theoretical knowledge and have learned how to teach financial education efficiently to secondary and Baccalaureate students.

 

With the practical block, participants have received an overview on teaching topics, and they have also analysed the current regulations on education, methodologies to enhance motivation and learning, the development of skills and their assessments, as well as the integration of technology in learning, for instance. At the end of this block, students took an exam to assess what they had learnt.

 

The theoretical activity, whose programme has been specifically prepared on the basis of Edufinet Financial Guide, has been developed via ESESA’s online training platform, MYESESA. This module has allowed participants to update and learn more about the Spanish financial system and the products and services currently offered in the market.

 

In these virtual sessions, students have addressed different topics related to financial calculations, taxes and the current legal framework, as well as topics related to making financial decisions. At the end of each session in this block, students took different tests and had to pass final assessment to have access to the Instituto BME certification exam.

 

Escuela Superior de Estudios de Empresa IMF (ESESA IMF) was created in 1988 to generate knowledge through specialized training courses that contribute to talent creation and to the training of the future professionals and leaders. Founded by Malaga City Council and the former Caja de Ahorros de Ronda –then Unicaja-, it was one of the first business schools in Malaga. It currently offers training both for professionals with working experience and who need training update and for newly graduate university students who are interested in supplementing their studies with a more professional training.

 

Edufinet Project, pioneering financial education programme

 

With more than 15 years of trajectory, the Edufinet Project, promoted by Unicaja Banco and Fundación Unicaja, is one of the first financial education programmes launched in Spain. Is work has been recognised with several awards.

 

The Edufinet Project has been working, through an Internet portal for the general public, since 2007, although its development began in 2005. Currently, more than ten business organizations and institution and 16 universities collaborate with the project. All of the above make Unicaja, one of the first institutions to launch in Spain an initiative of this kind, to be one of the most active agents in financial education and inclusion, in the exercise of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and its commitment to society.

 

Edufinet’s website features sections such as EdufiBlog, EdufiTech and a financial education videogame. It also has a YouTube channel (channel: Proyecto Edufinet) and Facebook and Twitter accounts.
