We are a Secondary, High School and Vocational Training Institute in Martorell, Catalonia, Spain
We send our higher level to continue their training in a workplace of a company from one country of the EU. To organize all these mobility programs we have a organised schema and staff. All details can be found in General Organisation section.
We offer 3 degrees from three branches of high vocational (short cycle) studies:
All the information of our studies can be found in the Course Catalog.
In order to make sure that all our incoming participants are aware of the language use of the institution and to provide appropiate language skills to the incoming participants we have established the Language Policy Page Strategy
As we want our students to get the chance to study or train abroad, we have started a foreign languages program to make our students improve their English level by teaching some subjects in this language. Some staff from both specialties are involved in this new challenge.
As an expression of our commitment we publish our Erasmus Policy Statement along with our Charter where we establish our values, strategy and compromise.

In our local context, in recent years, many young people have left their studies to take unskilled but well paid jobs. As a result, we have a low level of education within the young population as well as a high unemployment rate. This implies a low socioeconomic status which can even get worse due to the effects of the economic crisis, This situation hinders future expectations for those who search a job or aim to implement new business projects in a changing and demanding labour market. Therefore, economic and social development of the region is decreasing.
From INS Joan Oró we are determined to improve the education and training of professionals, to enable them to meet the changing needs of the labour market. To adapt to these changes, we need to fit content, infrastructure, and methods used in Vocational Training to provide adult and young learners real prospects for personal development and attractive and stimulating careers.
After the analysis of this situation, we believe that our actions must respond to all these needs to achieve an European education and training environment, including transparent rating systems to enable the transmission and the accumulation of learning outcomes, the recognition of qualifications and skills and the extension of transnational mobility.
Promoting the use of English in our center by increasing training units taught in that language as well as those activities devoted to strengthen those students with a low initial level.
Promoting cooperation in training in companies to stimulate creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.
Improving our students training by complementing in the company the knowledge they have achieved in class.
Improving their knowledge of the English language.
Giving them the opportunity to visit a foreign country and be in contact with a new culture.
Giving them the opportunity to achieve work experience and to be in contact with the most advanced technology.
We aim to achieve these goals through a proactive timely during the period 2015-2020 as follows:

These students have learned to manage the business operations of sale and distribution of products and services, and organize the implementation and animation of commercial space, according to criteria of quality, safety and risk prevention, according to current regulations. For this reason, they have studied the following areas:
After making the first experience in Erasmus+ we will offer the possibility of students attending vocational Chemistry and Health with the cycles of higher degree. It is also taught the Advanced Vocational Training Laboratory of Analysis and Quality Control & Environmental Chemistry. With this qualification students will be able to organize and coordinate the activities of the laboratory and sampling plan, making all kinds of tests and analyses of materials and finished products and processes aimed at research and quality control, interpreting the results, and acting under rules of good laboratory practices. We also analyze samples of inflowing and outflowing, organize and manage the media and environmental protection measures, as well as inspect and control facilities for the conservation of the environment.
