The Aula d’Acollida is equipped and staffed thanks to the resources provided by the Departament d’Educació GENCAT: Ministry of Education.

Project whereby the school’s library is opened up to the local neighbourhood. In this way, neighbours with a shortage of cultural resources can use our facility and bibliographic collection. Our library is also connected to the network of public libraries, so it can offer users material from any public library.

Thos i Codina students participate in the following European student mobility programmes.
School Autonomy Plan
This plan, the first of its kind in Spain, means that the school can decide on its own to implement different strategies for facing today’s educational challenges, like trying to raise students’ grades, particularly at the ESO level, and enhancing social cohesion. Internally, the school also contemplates the goals of enhancing the school’s structure and image, and improving the students’ school-work transition.
This plan systematically rationalizes and controls all the school’s computing material.
Project encompassing the use of the school’s four working languages: Catalan, Spanish, English and German.
Tutoring Action Plan
In addition to the required tutoring action plans in the ESO and baccalaureate programmes, the school also has a tutoring pan for the intermediary level vocational training programme.
An innovative plan that is part of the Social Science syllabus. It is an experience whereby students work with oral memory procedures, reconstructing a recent historic period through interviews with family members.
Social Cohesion Plan
A project that focuses on taking advantage of our student body’s cultural diversity in working with audio-visual techniques. Newly arrived students produce a film showing their world and talking about their experiences. Students from here, for their part, explain our world, also on film, as a way of helping the newly arrived students to understand their new setting.
Professional counselling programme for individuals and companies
The aim of the professional counselling programme for individuals and companies is for vocational training centres to have the means to communicate important information, targeting and adapting it to their various stakeholders (students, adults, companies and institutions) so that each of them can make the most of the opportunities being offered to them through this sort of training, maximizing the value that it can provide to them.
School mediation service
School mediation is NOT a simple technique for tackling educational conflicts, nor is it a “light” complement of the disciplinary system.
Students in the Administration cycles participate in the experience of what it’s like to work at different jobs in a corporate setting through a virtual business simulator.
The goal of the programme is to accompany and provide support to vocational training centres in implementing and developing methodological strategies that promote entrepreneurial skills and the creation of jobs or self-employment initiatives.
