The fundamental purpose of this project is to raise the level of security in educational facilities to prevent unauthorised persons from entering the premises. Each school participating in the programme has been equipped with an access control system operated also by means of contactless cards issued by our bank.
We have been executing this project since 2012. To join the program, the school has to obtain the permission of the local authorities to become our bank’s partner school. Afterwards we finance the access system, and students can use our cards.
Currently, there are approximately 300 access control systems in 107 cities and towns in Poland. The largest number of these systems have been mounted in Ostrołęka, Głogów, Lublin, Sosnowiec, Wałbrzych, Września, Zamość, Bolesławiec and Chełm. In 2017, we issued ca. 60k cards for new students. In total, we have issued 182,405 cards, with the validity date of the last card issued falling to December 2019.
