Legal framework in Spain - IES Jacarandà
Our institution, IES Jacarandà, provides formal education, since our students´goal is to get the basic certifícate of secondary education, which allows them to get a job or carry on with their training or studies.
Their profile attend to two different pictures: young people who left school before finishing their education, and middle aged people that return to school because they wish to improve their personal situation or just knowledge.
We attempt to provide our students with those basic skills required to start functioning as independent learners or individuals in everyday life and working environment. Beside basic skills, they start the process to acquire some personal competencies. For that reason we also work with them attitude and emotional intelligence, since many learners have a history of school and personal failure and it is important to work motivation and self-steem.
IES Jacarandá provides Secondary education for adults, among other levels, in the scope of achievement of basic skills.
