Yes, we're about to start our summer holidays! Classes have already finished and the students who have failed some or all the subjects will have to sit for exams during the following two weeks or in february in order to move on to the next year. Otherwise, they have to re-attend the course. However, the ones who have passed all their exams are already enjoying and having a great time. What's it like in America? Do you also have exam boards at the end of the year? Despite being about to say goodbye for two months or so, we want to share with you some pictures from the Science Fair which took place on November 20th and 21st. The students showed all the projects they have worked on during the whole year. We hope you enjoy it, and please, tell us what you think about our school, if you like it, if there's something similar in the US, if you'd like to go to a school like ours, etc. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Hi, people! As the end of the year is coming, I'd like to know what you're planning to do in the summer. And what about you, Greensboro guys? Do you have a winter holiday? What are you going to do? Comment on your plans for the holidays.
Technical secondary education consists of three basic years, during which you're shown the different possible technicals careers you can chose from; and other three high school years. After completing the six years, you graduate as a technician majoring in Automotivemechanics, Aeronautics,Construction,Electricity, Electronics and Information Technology.
During the first three years (E.S.B.), the students have the following subjects: Science (Chemistry, Biology and Physics), Social Studies (History, Geography and formación ética y ciudadana), English, Language, Maths, P.E., and Technical drawing. They also attend different workshops, where they learn welding, panel beating, foundry, carpentry, and how to use a lathe. Other workshops are: electricity, electronics, construction, automotive mechanics and information technology.
After that three-year period, students can choose from six different specialisations, which will link them to specific areas of industrial and technical work.
AUTOMOTIVE MECHANICS: this specialization enables you to design, fix and maintain mechanic, electrical and electronic suspension systems, besides the evaluation of new technologies and the study of special vehicles.
AERONAUTICS: design, repair, and maintainance of aircraft and electromechanic and electronic auxiliary equipment. At the end of the third year, you graduate as aircraft maintainance mechanic. When you finish the fourth year, you graduate as an aeronautics technician. This is the only specialization which lasts four years.
CONSTRUCTION: the degree of Construction manager allows you to plan, size up, build and direct the building of any kind of civil construction (up to four storeys). You can carry out your work as a freelance constructor in a professional studio, in public administration or shops (construction hardware), teaching or putting up you own construction company.
ELECTRICITY: this specialisation enables you to plan, size up, direct and put up low and medium tension electric equipment. You will also be able to maintain electronic equipment related to generating energy.
ELECTRONICS: Electronics enables you to get into different areas, like assembling your own PC, the world of telecommunications, robotics, TV, sound, lighting, programming, automatization and systems control, or electronics applied to mechanics. In the school labs you will develop your skills for the future through the design, trial and maintainance of circuits, and planning and creating applied electronic systems.
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY: analysis, design, programming and use of administrative systems. Hardware and software installation and configuration. Web analysis and design. Multimedia systems and web page development. Technical assesment related to the acqusition of components and equipment.
