It is a secondary school of T-VET located in the Brussels Capital Region. Their mission is to be a reference hub in the field of vocational education and training, for an audience ranging from 12 to 99 years old, in the Brussels metropolitan context. The school welcomes a multicultural public often characterised by a migrant background, difficult family circumstances, living conditions in disadvantaged neighbourhoods and/or inadequate knowledge of Dutch (instruction language). The school aims to be a springboard to a promising future for these young people by investing in a structural approach of guidance and empowerment of young people in their own learning process. A dual education system (technical and practical) is considered essential in this respect. In the next 3 years the school will expand its offer with a brand new STEM campus for 800 students and in the last 4 years it has increasingly invested in partnerships with other VET providers nationally and internationally, but also in cooperation partnerships with institutions for higher education – such as Erasmushogeschool Brussel (VET college) – and adult education (CVO Brussels). The school also has more than 10 years of experience in European projects: Leonardo, Comenius and Erasmus+m (KA1 and KA2), as well as the VET Charted award and the new Erasmus+ accreditation. The school has also participated in several KA2 projects as an official partner and as a member of GO! Scholengroep Brussels (the Brussels group of Flemish Community Education schools, consisting of 50 educational institutions).

COQAN is a public law institution whose aim is the defence of the chemical profession and the dissemination of chemistry in society, bringing together almost five hundred professionals from various sectors. In addition, COQAN is integrated in the General Council of Chemical Associations of Spain, a collegial organisation that brings together more than six thousand chemists throughout Spain.
Its main activities are focused on providing services and information to our members, as well as continuous training in aspects related to chemistry and not exclusively for members or members of the profession. In addition, COQAN participates in scientific and technological dissemination activities and actively supports other actions organised by other institutions. Although COQAN’s sphere of action is limited to the communities of Aragon and Navarre, its members carry out their activities throughout Spain and also in other countries.
COQAN, as a professional organisation, is a transmission belt between the world of work and professionals, which, although with greater incidence in the world of chemical industries, is not limited to any specific sector. The search for professionals to meet the demand for specialists is one of the tasks of our organisation, and vocational training graduates are a permanent requirement. In this sense, COQAN, through this agreement, can act as a link between companies in the sector and young graduates of the training programmes offered by the Salesian organisation.
It should also be noted that the Colegio Nuestra Señora del Pilar in Zaragoza and COQAN signed a collaboration agreement in 2019, which in 2021 was extended to include cooperation between our institutions within the framework of the Don Bosco National Prize for Technological Research and Innovation, with COQAN becoming an official sponsor of the same from this year.

CENTRO SAN VIATOR, diocesan school, was founded in 1953 in the region of Enkarterri, in the province  of Biscay, in a rural area where job opportunities usually pass through agricultural and livestock activity.  Located in a mountainous area and with a rugged landscape, terrestrial communications present not a few  difficulties that accentuate the lack of opportunities for the residents of the region. Centro San Viator offers training from Kinder Garden to High school diploma, including Middle Degree (EQF 3) and High Degree (EQF 5) to meet the needs of more than 1000 students working with a staff  of about 100 professionals. Our VET offer includes: Retail, Car Mechanics, Mechanization, Electronics Electricity, Child Education and Geriatrics. We offer courses for unemployed people, in order to respond to  the high percentage of unemployment that currently exists in this region. Complementing our offer, we also  promote training courses for active workers.  We are an entity with a strong social character and a priority objective: helping people with fewer  opportunities, at risk of exclusion. We annually receive about 150 students who dropped out from other schools  or who are at risk of early school leaving. In 2001 we started working on our quality system and for that purpose we created a specific team as we realized  we needed to create new working standards. After 3 years developing all processes, in 2004 we got the ISO  9001:2000 and continued to get, in 2005, the Silver Q in the EFQM system. But we didn’t stop there. We know  how important is to keep all the quality systems alive and in 2010 we got the ISO 14001 for environmental  management and are now focus in the Gold Q.
