The Naturgy Foundation works alongside seven regions to update energy-related VT curriculum content, with the aim of adapting it to the real needs of companies and society in the framework of the current energy transition. The ultimate goal is to better prepare students to enter the job market and improve their employability. During the 2020-2021 school year, over 5,100 students from 65 educational centres are benefiting from this programme.
