More than 350 students under the Forma’t Al Port training project in March and April

The first trimestre of the year was hectic for the Escola, especially March, when we welcomed more than 300 students attending 6 editions of Forma’t al Port programme (Get Trained at the Port). Fifty more attended the last edition that took place in April. The project is designed for students of Higher Level Vocational Training in Transport and Logistics and International Trade from Barcelona area High Schools and it aims to raise a well-prepared logistics community to help facing the region strategic challenge.

The educational centres that took part in this year’s editions are: Institut Lluïsa Cura, Centre d’Estudis Prat, López Vicuña, Institut Jaume Mimó, La Salle, Institut Les Salines, Fundació UAB, Institut Provençana, Centre d’Estudis Politècnics, Institut Joan Brossa, Institut Poblenou and CE Sant Francesc.

The table of contents of Forma’t al Port presents and illustrates all the actors forming the port community and the tasks and duties they have to oblige: shipping agencies, freight forwarders, stevedores, customs brokers and logistics centres. In addition to the lectures, as in all the Escola’s training programmes, in order to have a first-hand experience of the operations carried out in the port precincts, the students had the chance to visit some port facilities, such as containers terminals –APM Terminals and BEST–, Can Tunis intermodal terminal, two automotive terminals –SETRAM and Autoterminal– and ZAL Port. The training lasts 2 days.

Forma’t al Port is a project propelled by Port of Barcelona, BCL–Barcelona Catalunya Centre Logístic, Diputació de Barcelona and Fundació Barcelona–Formació Professional, and it is supported by many sector’s companies and associations. It started in 2014 and was set up for 3 years, till 2017. The project is very likely to continue in the following years.
