Our aim at Lauaxeta Ikastola is to be socially beneficial, financially viable, and environmentally responsible.
Accordingly, our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility underpins all the school’s processes, which concern the two complementary dimensions of its Educational Model and Management System.
Our Educational Model is informed by the school’s specific approach to management, namely, process-based management according to the European EFQM model. This model enables us to use processes to effectively and efficiently orchestrate all our daily activities involving the management of our finances, academic matters, and supplementary services, for example. This systematic dedication to continuous improvement has enabled us to smoothly and seamlessly integrate all our processes within an organised structure.
The use of our systematic approach in the development of our vision and in the deployment of our strategic plans has led to the award of numerous social accolades and prizes in recognition of our educational project, as well as to the greater satisfaction of our community and staff, with the following major highlights: Silver Q in 2001, two prizes awarded by Spain’s Ministry of Education and Science in 2001 and 2002, the Gold Q awarded in 2003, the “European Quality Award Finalist” in 2004 and 2006, and Prize Winner for Management by Processes and the “European Quality Award” in 2007.
Inspired by these awards, our vocation is to continue learning and improving hand-in-hand with other organisations and companies both in the education sector and elsewhere.
