Martorell, 11-04-2007 -- Today, in a repetition of previous similar events, SEAT has donated a total number of 15 vehicles to different vocational training centres run by the Department of Education of the Catalan government (Generalitat). The event was held at the new facilities of the recently-opened SEAT Service building at Martorell.

The official ceremony was attended by SEAT’s Executive Vice-President for Human Resources, Ramón Paredes Sánchez-Collado; the Catalan government’s General Director for Vocational, Artistic and Specialised Teaching, Josep Francí i Carreté; the Lady Mayor of Martorell, Dora Ramon i Cabot, and the Head of the Training Centre of SEAT Manuel Moreno. Also in attendance were local coordinators as well as heads of the fifteen publicly-owned vocational training centres receiving the vehicles.
The vehicles will provide research and development opportunities for students enrolled at the vocational training centres. SEAT’s Vice-President for Human Resources Ramón Paredes highlighted the importance of “SEAT’s commitment to the educational community, with quality training providing a cutting edge in competitiveness”.

Furthermore, the General Director for Vocational, Artistic and Specialised Teaching, Josep Francí pointed out that “the agreement that we have reached with SEAT facilitates the training of specialized professionals in order to give an answer to the shortage of this kind of professionals. The continuous effort SEAT has made with the contribution of its vehicles during those years has benefited substantially the training and the development of future professionals in our country”, said Francí.

SEAT has been involved in this practice since 1991. To date a total number of 400 cars has been supplied to diverse publicly-owned educational centres, the ultimate aim being to provide the centres with hands-on experience with new technologies in the automotive sector.
