Education

Convinced as we are that Education is the best tool for future development, we at Fundación Prosegur promote initiatives that seek to reinforce the training of adults and children in Europe, Latin America and Asia.

Talent Scholarships

With the aim of contributing to the formation of new generations, the Prosegur Foundation develops the Talent Scholarship program: a commitment to academic excellence and personal effort. Our most outstanding internal educational initiative supports the training of employees and their families in nine countries.

Depending on the needs of each geography, the Scholarships are adapted to different modalities: aid for schoolchildren, for children of university age or who opt for technical studies and for employees who are combining their work in Prosegur with their training.

The program is implemented in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Spain, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Singapore and Uruguay and has benefited, since its launch in 2008, more than 12,000 students.

 

Environmental education

Planeta Limpio

Es nuestro programa de educación medioambiental que contribuye a sensibilizar sobre el desarrollo sostenible, la gestión de residuos y el cuidado responsable del entorno, con la ayuda de los nuevos robots de LEGO® Education. La iniciativa se desarrolla en diferentes etapas:

  • Talleres en colegios para alumnos de primaria.
  • Reto en red para resolver por equipos.
  • Actividad de continuidad en verano.

Innovación y trabajo en equipo

  • Talleres en el aula: los estudiantes afrontan el reto de limpiar su ciudad a través de tres misiones relacionadas con la identificación, clasificación y reutilización de residuos. Trabajan en equipo y con la ayuda de los robots de LEGO Education.
  • Continuidad en Internet: tras la sesión en el aula, a los alumnos se les planteará un reto medioambiental que deberán resolver en equipo y con creatividad. En anteriores ediciones, las soluciones más innovadoras recibieron un premio: conocer el Museo Fernando Alonso y el Estadio El Molinón desde la perspectiva de la seguridad.

Summer camps

Aimed at Prosegur employees’ children in Chile, Portugal and Spain; this programme (called "Campamentos de Verano" or “Vacaciones Entretenidas”) promotes learning in the arts or natural sciences, boosts the knowledge of English and the pursuit of sports activities and encourages the independence of the children by means of mixing with other children of different ages and countries.

Since its beginnings in 2007, Prosegur Summer Camps have benefited over a thousand children from 8 to 14 years of age.

 

other initiatives

From the outset, the Foundation has also supported talent in the field of Culture, promoting the training and encouraging the artistic career of musical talent internationally by means of the scholarships it awards to students of the Escuela Superior de Música Reina Sofía.

Accordingly, the Prosegur’s Albéniz Quintet played at concerts in the Santa María Basilica in Alicante and at the Universidad Laboral in Gijón this year. Moreover, in 2012, concerts were held to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the 1812 Constitution, popularly known as “La Pepa”, at the Real Alcázar in Seville and the seat of the Senate in Madrid.
