Development of occupational competencies

In upper secondary education the development of competencies is reinforced by an occupational approach. The projects undertaken by pupils are therefore focused mainly on cross-sectoral competencies.

Competences web Types of competenciesCompetences web


In year one of upper secondary education pupils undertake an entrepreneurial learning project that concludes with the setting up of a business project that they must defend before a panel of assessors. This project is carried out in teams, which then become company staff. To that end they make contact with eminent specialists and receive training and master classes from experts in the world of business, innovation and communication.

Bussines programme

All year two upper secondary pupils undergo work experience at companies related to the higher education studies that they wish to take in the following year. This gives them first-hand knowledge of the day-to-day work that they may undertake in the near future, and enables them to assess the importance of the occupational competencies that they are acquiring and of maintaining a proactive attitude to everyday challenges and problems.

European Youth Parliament

In year one of upper secondary education pupils take part in the EYP (European Youth Parliament) programme via the optional subject of Speaking. This programme introduces them to topics concerned with society, politics and economics at worldwide level, and takes the United Nations as a model model for instilling values such as debate, argument, active listening and oratory. The programme concludes with various regional, nationwide and international events that bring together all the pupils who have worked on the project. This programme is conducted entirely in English.

European projects

Learning to communicate effectively in more than one foreign language is a priority for our upper secondary pupils. In year one of upper secondary education the pupils who take French therefore take part in an exchange project with a school in La Rochelle. This project takes place over the whole year and culminates with a full language-immersion trip lasting for a week in which pupils stay with the families of their French counterparts on the project. Moreover, to improve their communication skills in English pupils have the chance to spend one week during this year in Malta, combining classes and leisure activities. 
Finally, the students have the possibility of making an exchange also with Berlin

European Projects

Feedback and improvement

Feedback between staff and pupils concerning the learning process and their improvements is a key element in the development of competencies among pupils and in the assessment system as a whole. Apart from continual, ongoing feedback throughout the school year, each pupil receives exhaustive feedback on his/her strengths and potential areas of improvement at three points during the year.

Cambridge exams

Pupils have the opportunity to sit the official Cambridge exams at the school itself. To that end, English teachers guide each pupil towards the type of exam that best suits his/her level.

Volunteering & service learning

Those pupils who choose to do so have the opportunity to involve themselves in volunteering activities, helping in social, educational and assistance tasks coordinated by the school which take place on the premises and at other organisations with which agreements are reached.


The students in Upper  Secondary Education carry out a range of projects in which they use  video as a device to communicate and disseminate their insights. In this way, they practise the skills of recording techniques, professional  editing and communicative and oral competences.

Personalized learning portfolio

In upper secondary education pupils continue their learning portfolios more autonomously, covering both their learning processes and their personal and occupational development.

Monitor school

Those year two upper secondary pupils who wish to do so may take part in the Laueaxeta Ikastola Official School for Monitors (Euskaraz Egin Taldea), in which they can take an official monitor training course at the school itself.

Sports coach

Those pupils who wish to do so may also take training courses leading to sports coach qualifications at the school itself. These courses are given by qualified specialists.

First aid & lifeguard training

Those pupils who choose to do so may also obtain official first aid and lifeguard training certificates on courses at the school itself, provided that they reach the required minimum standards.
