Eductaion model

The educational model of Basque Culinary Center has as its objective the personal, social and professional training of students. This means that the student will drive their own training, work as part of a team, undertake projects, take decisions, negotiate and communicate effectively.

It is an eminently practical skills-based model, focussing intently on the student. It values each student's knowledge, skills and attitude within an interdisciplinary approach, encouraging students to combine several areas of knowledge. This results in continuous and global evaluation, based mainly on communication generated between the teaching staff and the students.
