Who we are
Institut Poblenou is a public professional education centre that forms part of the city of Barcelona’s public education centre network, which is managed by the Barcelona Education Consortium. At the end of the 2006/2007 academic year, Institut Poblenou made an important decision to stop offering secondary school and sixth form education, and to begin their transformation towards becoming a centre exclusively for professional students of Sales and Marketing, Business Administration and Finance and Information and Communications Technology. That fact that we only offer Vocational Training has allowed us to focus on providing quality professional education and rehabilitate, condition and equip our space to suit the vocational training qualifications in the above professional fields.
Committed to quality in education management, Institut Poblenou has designed a management system based on the ISO 9001-2008 standard, a system which in April 2011 was certified by the company Applus+. Year after year we follow up the re-certification of our system using the corresponding audits to continuously improve our educational offer.
Institut Poblenou forms part of a diverse setting; whilst our intermediate vocational training courses are attended mainly by students from nearby centres, as well as students from Institut Poblenou’s Entry-Level Training Programmes (ETP) who wish to continue their training, students that apply to our advanced vocational training courses come from different neighbourhoods in Barcelona, and sometimes from the surrounding regions.
The Institute is located in the 22@ district, an area that Barcelona City Council has transformed into an impressive business hub specialising in different fields of technology, research and business. As an education centre that produces qualified professionals, Institut Poblenou values this proximity as an opportunity for our students (work experience, work and allied establishments), our teaching staff (collaborating with businesses) and also for the companies (in close proximity to qualified professionals, training for their employees, collaborations, etc.).
and How the Centre Works
The centre’s organisational and operational standards (OOS) represent the set of organisational and operational agreements and decisions that make education and management possible, with a view to achieving the objectives set out in the educational project and the annual programme. These regulations have been approved by the school board and have as a regulatory framework the Law 12/2009 of Education of Catalonia (LEC) of 10 July, and the Decree 102/2010 of 3 August on the autonomy of education centres.
