    Resume

We are a Secondary School and Vocational Training Institute in Santa Coloma de Gramanet, Catalonia, Spain. We have Information Technology and Finance vocational high studies, and we want our students to get the chance to study or train abroad.

    Language project called PILE

The Vocational section has started lately a foreign languages program (PILE) to make our students improve their English level by teaching some subjects in this language. Many teachers from both specialties will be involved in this new challenge.

    Studies certification

To simplify the studies certification, our administration according to the European Community has the equivalence for the subjects in ECTS
