About AIJU training
AIJU, the Technological Institute for Children’s and Leisure Products, is a non-profit body whose main objective is to promote research, safety and quality in the industrial field.
AIJU’s Training Department has a lengthy track record (since 1990) dedicated to continuous and occupational training. Its primary objective is to provide professionals from companies or other students with top-quality training so that they can obtain the best possible qualification with which to secure a job or improve their career. The AIJU Training Department provides companies with its experience, its infrastructure and a highly qualified staff in order to contribute, through a wide range of training services, to the best possible preparation of professionals from the corporate fabric.
Each year, AIJU organises more than two hundred training actions of different types, training over 2000 students through some 8000 hours of training in different subjects, with special emphasis on technological and corporate contents, with highly innovative content. These training actions include personalised training, courses, conferences or open sessions for different companies or types of students.
Wide range of training courses. Constantly updated and available on-line
The ultimate aim of our training actions is to offer companies in the toy-leisure-childhood sector and its auxiliary industry – plastics, moulds, etc. – human resources suitably trained in technology, processes and innovation, and in all those areas of earning and improvement updating that are relevant to such industries.
Our best guarantee is our clients and students. Each year, more than 2000 students visit our classrooms, students who let us have their opinion of the course, through a questionnaire, once they have finished each training activity. AIJU’s training activities receive an annual score of around 8.5 points out of 10. This high score confirms how satisfied our students and companies are with our training activity, and it also confirms a real improvement in the formation of these people within their professional environment.

“SHAPING AND TRAINING OUR FUTURE…”
Nowadays training is not a unique and initial stage in a person’s life, as it has been for many years, and therefore the “Training-Work-Retirement” scheme of things has been left behind. The accelerated obsolescence of knowledge in our time, forces companies and workers to be and to remain constantly up to date, to improve the competitivity of the former and to continuously update of the professional skills of the latter, so that they can successfully face the changes in the labour market.
The close relationship between economic and technological development and investment in and planning of education and training is notorious, and this training must meet companies’ real current and future needs because the increasingly changing models of competitivity and technological processes are constantly demanding different, more flexible and adaptable skills. Companies and workers need to keep up to date with changes if they are to survive in this competitive world, and, therefore, they need to constantly update their abilities and skills.
The globalisation of markets, and the emergence of new technologies require companies to continuously invest in their most important resource: their human capital. Knowledge is a production factor that has a positive impact on competitivity, not to mention the ability to innovate, a key element in the economy of knowledge.
Training workers also has a profound social meaning, given that it increases their employability, their opportunities to obtain a better salary, and the generation of new jobs as a result of the growth of companies.
