At the same time the teachers have the duty to approach school learning to a fast changing technologically based market, so the students will develop a new awareness of know-how and skills necessary to find an employment in areas that might have been struck by the economic crisis. They need to acquire the necessary skills that will ensure their employment as soon as possi- ble after graduation or the life skills necessary to excel in Universities and also help in the long run, to avoid excluding them for a long period of time from the labor market. It is also essential to cope with unforeseen changes and become happy workers throughout their active life.
  3. 3. Tenerife is the largest and most populated island of the seven Canary Islands. It is also the most populated island of Spain, with a land area of 2,034.38 square kilometres (785 sq mi) and 904,713 inhabitants,43 percent of the total population of the Canary Islands.Tenerife is the largest and most populous island of Macaronesia. Approximately five million tourists visit Tenerife each year, the most visited island of the archipelago. It is one of the most important tourist destinations in Spain,hosting one of the world's largest carnivals, the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Tenerife is served by two airports, Tenerife-North Air- port and Tenerife-South Airport. Tenerife is the economic capital of the Canary Islands. The capital of the island, Santa Cruz de Tene- rife, is also the seat of the island council (cabildo insular). The city is capital of the autonomous community of Canary Islands (shared with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria), sharing governmental institu- tions such as presidency and minis- tries. Between the 1833 territorial divi- sion of Spain and 1927, Santa Cruz de Tenerife was the sole capital of the Ca- nary Islands. In 1927 the Crown or- dered that the capital of the Canary Islands be shared, as it remains at present. Santa Cruz contains the modern Auditorio de Tenerife, the architectural symbol of the Canary Islands. The island is home to the University of La Laguna; founded in 1792 in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, it is the oldest university in the Canar- ies. The city of La Laguna is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the second city most populated on the island and the third in the archipel- ago. It was capital of the Canary Islands before Santa Cruz replaced it in 1833. The earliest known human settlement in the islands date to around 200 BC, by Berbers known as the Guanches. However, the Cave of the Guanches in the municipality of Icod de los Vinos in the north of Tenerife, has provided the oldest chronologies of the Canary Islands, with dates around the sixth century BC. Regarding the technological level, the Guanches can be framed among the peoples of the Stone Age, although this terminology is re- jected due to the ambiguity that it presents. The Guanche culture is characterized by an advanced cultural development, possibly related to the Berber cultural features imported from North Africa and a poor technological development, determined by the scarcity of raw materi- als, especially minerals that allow the extraction of metals. The main activity was grazing, although the population were also engaged in agriculture, as well as fishing and the collection of shellfish from the shore or using fishing craft. Tenerife is known internationally for its warm and pleasant climate, as the "Island of Eternal Spring" (Isla de la Eterna Primavera).[46] The is- land, which lies at the same latitude as central Florida, enjoys a warm tropical climate with an average of 18–24 °C (64–75 °F) in the winter and 24–28 °C (75–82 °F) in the summer. It has a high annual total of days of sunshine, and low precipitation in all but the mountain areas.

We visited the Teide National Park, the largest and oldest park on the Canary Islands, that in 2007 was declared as a World Heritage Site in the Natural Well category by UNESCO. We had a discussion with geologists about job & life skills and they explained to us that the Teide volcano, which is the third highest volcanic structure in the world, is its main attraction. Then we visited the museum which features a recreation of the inside of a volcanic tunnel, interactive elements, picture boards and back-lit panels. The geologists led us to the hall with an audiovisual projector to help us understand the creation of the Teide-Pico Viejo crater upon which the complex stands. The Botanical Gardens beside the El Portillo Visitor Centre are there to display, research and reproduce the area's native flora, and we were taught from agronomists that the gardens receive international backing with the aim of supporting the recovery of endangered plant species. In the afternoon we visited La Orotava, guided by an architect who explained to us that the town is made up of wonderfully kept traditional houses, leading the town center to be declared a His- toric-Artistic Site.
