  3. 3.

  20. 20. Gender distribution
  21. 21. Subjects A typical student attends: • 3 or 4 subjects in VET each semester • 4 subjects in GES each term • A complete course in preparation for entrance examinations • In non compulsory secondary education, it depends on the student
  22. 22. Students work It is very difficult to say, but according to the annual surveys the IOC carries out every year: – Two or three hours per day • We do not know if this is real or not
  23. 23. Contact student-teacher The students can contact their teachers as often as necessary. • In each subject, there is an e-mail box where the students can contact their teachers personally. • The teachers must answer in 24/ 48 hours.
  24. 24. Written assignments In GES, secondary education and preparation courses, the written assignments and deliveries are due every two weeks. In VET, there is a delivery each 30 hours. The number of activities delivered by the students depends on the subject. There can be different types of activities (written documents, quizzes, participations in forums,...) Sometimes there are group activities.
  25. 25. Student’s fee • GES: 12 to 20 € per quarter • Secondary education: 32 to 58 € per semester • Preparation course: 58 € per year • VET: 32€ per each subject per semester
  26. 26. Financial basis for students • As a public school, our students can apply for state grants • The last course our headmaster signed more than 200 grants
  27. 27. Theory versus practice • The relation between theory and practice depends on the studies and the subjects, but the IOC model tends to give more importance to the activities that the students do than to the contents of the subject.
  28. 28. Study and work • Most of our students are workers: 80 % • Therefore, the students can work and study at the same time because they only come to school for the final test at the end of the term or semester.
  29. 29. Teacher’s educated • The IOC teachers are trained by the courses offered by the Department of Education every year. • Moreover, each year there are specific courses only for teachers working at the IOC. • Most of these courses and seminars offer blended learning, with some classroom sessions and some e- learning work.
  30. 30. Labour market • The intention of our school is to offer training activities addressed to the labour market, but at the moment we only have a “CISCO” course.
  31. 31. School organization • 1 Coordinator of distance education • 1 Headmaster • 4 directors of studies ( GES, Secondary Education, VET, and EOI) • 3 secretaries • 1 administrator • 1 director of technology • 1 director of computer systems • 1 quality coordinator • 32 coordinators: coordinators for each type of educations, heads of departments, coordinators for collaborators, language coordinator...
  32. 32. Students with problems • In compulsory education, GES, the school makes curriculum adaptations. • We take handicapped students in all types of education. • But, in the school we lack qualified staff to help people with other kinds of problems. • Anyway, all the teachers look for a solution when they detect students with problems
