The director of the AVAF initiates the course «Prevention of risks of corruption in public management» for PAS personnel of the University of Valencia.


On February 2, 2022, Joan Llinares inaugurated, together with Beatriz Gómez, Vice Manager of Economic and Services Coordination of the University of Valencia, the course “Prevention of risks of corruption in public management” managed by the Permanent Training Service and Educational Innovation (SFPIE) of the University of Valencia.

The AVAF Training Service has prepared a 15-hour course, at the request of the university, in which, over five weeks, selected UV personnel will receive training on integrity, corruption prevention, control, the costs of corruption, among other matters.

The teachers who will teach the five modules that make up the course are part of the staff of the Agency’s Training, Prevention and Documentation Department.

The interest of the university’s SFPIE in providing quality training in integrity and public ethics to UV staff is highly relevant and is manifested through this collaboration with AVAF.

In this first day of training and reflection together with the public employees participating in the course of the University of Valencia, the director of the Agency has taught the module on the institutional system against corruption in Spain: the Agency for Prevention and Fight against Fraud and Corruption of the Valencian Community: origin, functions and independence.

Prevention and training are the key tools in the fight against corruption and essential functions of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency and where it focuses many of its efforts.

The responsibility of public employees, the need to plan in the field of contracting are some of the issues that have been present throughout the AVAF director’s conference.

33 people participate in this edition of the course, most of them technical personnel from the contracting services, legal advice, internal control office, among other services of the University of Valencia,

With this type of training activities, the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency continues to fulfill one of its functions, collected at the headquarters of the 2016 creation law, training as fundamental components of the strategy to prevent corruption and improve integrity in the public sector.

The debate on corruption in high school classrooms at the hands of the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency.


The docuforum “Corruption: harmful organism” has returned to the classrooms of the “Nuestra Señora de la Salud – Maristas” school in Algemesí.

The interest and collaboration of the high school teachers led to the celebration of the learning experience where the 1st year high school students were the protagonists last Monday, January 31.

After viewing the documentary, the students expressed their interest in knowing in more detail the protection provided to whistleblowers of corruption by the Agency, as well as the microeconomic effects that corruption produces in our society.

The questions and doubts of the students were the focus of the second session of the training activity, led by technical staff from the AVAF Training Service. The information that students want to know in more detail becomes the roadmap for the classroom debate on the prevention of corruption and fraud. On this occasion, the facilitator of the second session was Pilar Moreno, the Agency’s training technician.

The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency has taken the step of bringing the institution, its objectives and functions closer to ESO and Baccalaureate classes and providing young people with information on the fight against corruption, integrity and transparency.
