A project by the Escola Túrbula and UIC Barcelona has been awarded at the 6th edition of the Plan for Innovative Measures in Vocational Training (FP)
The project entitled “Dental Prosthesis within Everyone’s Reach” is a service-learning initiative that was jointly set up by Escuela Túrbula and the Faculty of Dentistry at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC Barcelona) was awarded at the 6th edition of the Plan for Innovative Measures in Vocational Training. The project allows people without any resources to access dental treatment that they would not be able to in another way.
Students from Escuela Túrbula created dental prostheses as part of their work placements which UIC Barcelona students will subsequently use for patients who require dental restoration. This project, apart from motivating students, also transmits values of solidarity, cooperation and teamwork. This year good dental health has been restored to 20 patients.
A total of 82 projects and 56 institutions participated in this 6th edition of the Plan for Innovative Measures in Vocational Training. This demonstrates the willingness of VT centres in the Barcelona area to continue to work towards innovative education and support projects that provide added value and quality to the Vocational Training system.
