EDUCATION FOR PUPILS OF TODAY

Projects that help to stimulate the new skills required by current society and to train students to adapt to a changing world.

The children and young people of today have to acquire knowledge and learning that hybridise and merge. We propose new initiatives which help teachers to stimulate skills in their pupils such as working collaboratively, communication, development of the creative spirit, leadership, financial culture, creativity and curiosity, becoming entrepreneurs and being respectful of their environment.
