REVIEW OF THE TRAINING INITIATIVE:

The initiative emerged when LOGSE system was introduced in Spain and had to switch from a vocational training center for first grade in a center of ESO And C.F.G.M. .
At the end of the 90’s we used to offer vocational training in Administration, Electrical equipment and Trade. .

At the vocational studies on Sales, we had students with low academic level.

At the commerce studies in vocational training there were students with low academic level and a high absenteeism
In order to solve this, we started implementing the following strategies:
- Curricula with reduced contents
- Weekly follow up of the absenteeism
- Visits to the shops where former students had been hired and had been on stage
- Visits to all companies where they were going to practice
- Meetings with the HR departments of big chains/department stores.

Awareness to of the secondary school counselors:
- Use of ICT to most of the subjects
- Trip to see shop windows around the city
- Activities in English (theatre, interviews,..)
- Workshop on how to set a shop window
- Meetings with the mentors at the shops and the families
All the actions are registered at our quality system and have been recognized for its quality by the regional educational authorities.
