Iberdrola and the Government of Castilla-La Mancha hold a language immersion course in Villanueva de los Infantes, Ciudad Real
The aim of this programme was to offer an English language immersion course to students in compulsory secondary education at government schools in Castilla-La Mancha.
Iberdrola and the Government of Castilla-La Mancha Department of Education, Culture and Sports held an English language immersion course during the first fortnight of August in Villanueva de los Infantes, in the province of Ciudad Real.
At the end of the course, diplomas were presented to the students, in the presence of the Councillor for Education, Culture and Sports of the Government of Castilla-La Mancha, Ángel Felpeto, the mayor of Villanueva de los Infantes, Antonio Ruiz Lucas, and the Iberdrola institutional representative in Castilla-La Mancha, Venancio Rubio.
The course, which was for students in compulsory secondary education at government schools in the region, was organised and funded by Iberdrola and taught by Interway, a leading language course company. The programme also met the requirements set by the Department of Education, Culture and Sports of the Government of Castilla-La Mancha, which selected the participants based on their academic excellence.
The initiative, for which 40 students were chosen, was taught by native speakers to offer an intensive language programme to improve the students’ level and give them the confidence needed to show their talent in the classes.
In addition to classes and learning workshops, the course, which was held in this Autonomous Region for the first time, included recreational activities that used only English.
The course is another example of the activities in which Iberdrola collaborates with the Government of Castilla-La Mancha. The company also supports FARCAMA, the Regional Handicrafts Fair, as well as Fundación Impulsa, to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the death of Miguel Cervantes, and the project +Implicados, which seeks to raise the professionalism of the region’s special employment centres.
As part of its commitment to the territories where it operates, IBERDROLA supports the creation and sharing of knowledge in order to help train a generation of highly-skilled professionals to face up to the challenges that lie ahead, including the development of a sustainable energy model.
