The president of the SEK Education Group has participated in the round table on Education and employability of the ‘Wake Up, Spain!’ Forum organized by Invertia and the digital newspaper El Español.
The president of the SEK Education Group, Nieves Segovia, has defended the continuity of learning throughout life and also the need to work together between the different parts of the educational system. “We are going to have to learn throughout our lives, updating our knowledge, but not as we have done so far,” she said.
In addition, she has defended the work of teachers. “They have been the other heroes of the pandemic”, Segovia said, and she has stressed the need to train them in skills “also digital ones, and this should be in the order of priorities of the ministry and, of course, of educational institutions.”
The president took advantage of her intervention to announce the launch of the Digital Skills School that will be taught by the Camilo José Cela University, with the support of El Español and the Inndux Digital Group, to train managers and middle managers in areas related to innovation in technology and entrepreneurship.
