Education and Training
In 2018, 40% of our donation and sponsorship budget went to creating or supporting projects dedicated to career advice, professional training and experience and knowledge sharing.
Financial education in schools
Launched in 2018, this project aims to make students more familiar with topics concerning finance, economics and the world of work through the support of professionals and testimonials.
The initiatives which involve the educational pathway proposed to schools in collaboration with FEDUF (Foundation for Financial Education and Savings Plans) include:
Events in schools – dedicated to primary and secondary schools, it offers financial education training;
Vivi la tua Banca (Experience your Bank), dedicated to secondary schools, it involves classroom training, visits to our offices and meetings with entrepreneurs and professionals;
Che impresa ragazzi (Way to go, guys!) –, dedicated to school and work programs for secondary schools
We entered into a partnership with JECatt – the Junior Enterprise Cattolica – with the aim of reducing the gap between universities and the world of work.
Junior Enterprises are non-profit associations that are managed and run by university students who provide consultancy activities.
While, on the one hand, junior enterprises allow the students to gain experience by fostering the entrepreneurial spirit, which is in increasing demand by companies, on the other, it allows business clients to access a range of services, at low cost, such as business planning, feasibility studies and new product launches.
