Factor promotes the training of the new generations

The company understands that the commitment with the educational institutions and centers of its environment is fundamental and each year offers an internship exchange to Master, Degree and Dual FP students.

The collaboration between business and academia is of paramount importance for Factor, insofar as it influences the strengthening of education and the economy of the environment and drives the progress and innovation of society. 

Along these lines, the company believes that it is essential to engage with the educational institutions and centers in its environment in order to become actively involved in the local community and promote the training of future generations. "We understand that vocational schools and universities, both public and private, must always go hand in hand and create synergies. That is why our link with vocational training centers and universities is so strong," says Ana María Sánchez Escribano, Factor's People Director.

Thus, in order to enrich the educational experience, prepare young people for the world of work and help them understand its challenges, Factor offers, in a transversal way, the possibility of having the first professional experience related to the training taken and the holistic learning of what it means to be part of an organization at all levels

And, more specifically, it offers technical knowledge highly demanded in the sector and in a market lacking of professionals of these characteristics: CNC programming, handling of complex industrial machinery, automated and collaborative work systems, etc.

For this purpose, Factor manages an annual internship exchange for the areas of Production, Quality and Engineering and Maintenance. And in the rest of the areas it varies depending on the projects being carried out at any given time. "From the Innovation area with data analytics projects, Commercial with market research projects and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) optimization or the People department with occasional support in tasks of implementation and monitoring of regulations on occupational risk prevention," says Ana Maria.

Factor offers an internship program for junior profiles

This training is aimed at juniors completing their machining studies (intermediate and higher degrees) or engineering studies, preferably industrial and/or mechanical, with a master's degree specializing in disciplines related to the sector. "In recent years we have been expanding the pull of internships with profiles from different disciplines depending on the projects that have been undertaken," emphasizes Ana María.  

And most importantly, the students who do internships at Factor have many possibilities for continuity. "In the production area, if the students have had a favorable evolution, the possibilities of continuity are very high. As for the other areas, depending on various factors, the viability of each incorporation is analyzed," says the Director of People.

Specifically, in the 2023-2024 academic year, more than ten Master's, Bachelor's and Dual Vocational Training students have completed their internships in Factor's production, logistics, engineering, maintenance, innovation and commercial areas.

A student of the Master's Degree in Maintenance Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV), who has completed his internship in the Maintenance Department, has rated the experience very positively: "Since I arrived, FACTOR has treated me very well. It is a respectful and fair company. Throughout my internship, all the company's staff has been very attentive at all times if I needed help. I wish the best of success to the company to which I am grateful for having allowed me to do my internship and my Master's Thesis".

Factor collaborates with the institutions and educational centers of the environment

Currently, Factor collaborates with the following institutions and educational centers: Universitat Politécnica de Valencia (UPV), Escuela de Empresarios, (EDEM), Campus Cámara Valencia, Université de Technologie Tarbes, CIPFP Eduardo Merelló, Escuela Thyssen Galmed, Escuelas San José-Jesuitas, CIPFP La Laboral, CIFPI San Jaume Apostol, Centro Labora Formación Aldaia.

In addition, Factor also schedules visits for teachers and students in order to show firsthand what a day's work in the company is like. Specifically, in this academic year it has received the visit of the Xabec Vocational Training Center, the IES Alto Palancia, the San José-Jesuitas School and the PRL AIDIME Master.

In short, Factor demonstrates in its day to day an exceptional commitment to training and employability. A firm commitment to the development of talent and the creation of opportunities for new generations, which benefits every year to several young people who have the opportunity to enjoy a valuable experience in the world of work.
