The agreements between the Ertzaintza and three universities will promote the labor integration of students through internships

The Government Council of Euskadi has today approved the signing of three agreements with the University of Deusto, the Miguel de Cervantes European University and the University of La Rioja, in an effort to foster collaboration between academia and security forces. This agreement will facilitate students from different disciplines to carry out internships at the Ertzaintza facilities, under the guidance of experienced professionals, with the aim of improving their preparation and increasing their chances of entering the labor market.

The relevance of these agreements lies in their ability to offer real and applied experience to the theoretical knowledge acquired in the classrooms. Students of the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the University of Deusto, of the Criminology Degree of the Miguel de Cervantes University and of various degrees and masters of the University of La Rioja, will directly benefit from this unique opportunity.

The initiative not only seeks to enrich the students' curriculum, but also provide the Ertzaintza with access to new perspectives and knowledge that young people contribute to the field of security. In this way, collaboration has the potential to improve procedures and effectiveness in the daily operations of the Ertzaintza.

The initial duration of these agreements will be four years, with the option of renewal for an equal period.

Which demonstrates the long-term commitment of the parties involved. This collaboration is not an isolated event, but part of a broader strategy that the Department of Security has been developing for years, seeking to strengthen ties with the educational sector not only in Euskadi, but throughout the country.

This educational cooperation policy can be considered a model to follow in terms of synergy between education and other institutional sectors, creating a solid foundation for the professional development of future graduates. Furthermore, it is a clear example of how academia can actively contribute to society, preparing individuals not only competent in their fields of study, but also well-versed in the practical realities of their future careers.

Importantly, practical training in real-world environments complements and often exceeds the learning that can be obtained in a classroom environment. This experience not only reinforces academic knowledge, but also develops key skills such as decision making, critical thinking, and adaptability.

In short, the agreements represent a bridge between theory and practice, an educational approach that is increasingly gaining strength in modern society. By providing students a window into the real world, these agreements facilitate a smoother transition from education to the work environment, and reinforce the importance of adapting educational methods to the changing needs of our society.

The collaboration between the Ertzaintza and the universities is, therefore, a step forward towards a more integrated and practical approach to education, dwhere the benefits extend beyond individuals and reach the community at large. With initiatives like this, Euskadi is at the forefront of education aimed at employability and social responsibility, setting a precedent for other regions and sectors.

The effective implementation of these agreements will require continuous monitoring and periodic evaluations, to ensure that training and collaboration objectives are satisfactorily met. Likewise, it is essential that an open dialogue be maintained between all parties to adapt to any challenges that may arise during its implementation. In the end, the success of these agreements will depend on the ability of all parties to work together toward common goals that not only benefit students, but also strengthen the social fabric and security of the community.
