Centro Superior de Formación Europa Sur (CESUR)

Centro Superior de Formación Europa Sur (CESUR) is a private VET centre as well as training for employment centre.
As a VET center we have two kind of trainings: upper secondary education level (EQF level 4) and tertiary education level (EQF level 5).

CESUR has been accredited by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Employment to provide official training in Vocational and Educational Training (VET) as well as Professional Certificates (EQF levels 1, 2 and 3).

Nowadays, CESUR is made of 22 reference VET centres due to its pedagogical proposal and educational quality. All centres are based in the most important Spanish cities: Madrid, Málaga, Sevilla, Zaragoza, Murcia, Cáceres, Badajoz, Ceuta, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and Santa Cruz de Tenerife. It does also provide formal online training.

From an academic point of view (Ministry of Education), CESUR is accredited to provide a large catalogue of VET courses. More than 93 different degrees are offered belonging to the most requested industrial sectors: Aeronautics, Health, Sports, Financial and Management, Trade and Marketing, Tourism, Audiovisuals, Computing and ICT.
Those degrees are offered in three different modalities: under attendance (presence-based), online or dual system (work-linked training). The dual system is an innovative system Spain, in which training in school centre as well as in a real work environment in a business are combined. CESUR has brought the German model and has integrated it in the Spanish VET curriculum. This way, CESUR has become one of the pioneer VET centre implementing this dual methodology in Spain. Also, CESUR belongs to Fundación Bertelsmann (https://www.alianzafpdual.es/) which is Alliance that aims to promote the Dual VET System as an innovative and reference system. This Alliance is a Spanish network composed by companies, school centres and other organizations committed with the improvement of the employability of young people through the development of a high quality Dual VET system. Thanks to the consultancy by the Alliance for the VET Dual system, we have designed the curriculum of our VET Dual programmes. This way, our expertise team has participated in the work team that is continuously adapting the VET degrees to the labour market requests. CESUR has more than 9000 students (from 16 to 25 years old) in an average per year.

From a professional point of view (Ministry of Employment), CESUR is an official centre accredited to teach more than 250 Professional Certificates in presence-based and online modality. The aim of these degrees is to provide lifelong learning to employed workers as well as to unemployed adults through different public funds calls managed by either the state government or by the regional ones. Beneficiaries of this kind of training are working age adults who are part of the labour force. According to some data extracted from the state call of 2016 that was implemented during 2018 and 2019, CESUR has trained a total of 20,251 adults (active workers and unemployed people).

Partnership with companies. Both degrees categories, which means, VET as well as professional certificates degrees, offer a theoretical and practical curriculum since they all include a period of internship in a company within the industry. Doing and passing the internship period with success is mandatory in order to get the official certification. Currently, CESUR counts with more than 400 partner companies that welcome our students as host organizations for their internships. All companies that we collaborate with are commited with CESUR and the educational quality. The list of companies can be checked in CESUR website (www.cesurformacion.com).

The companies commitment is even more significant and stronger when they collaborate as a part of our Dual VET methodology, since in this kind of training, the host company draw up a apprenticeship agreement with the student and also the student is paid by the company.
One of the main CESUR priorities through the years has been the modernization of the VET system. For this purpose, CESUR counts not only with the most advanced tools and technical materials, but also with a high qualified team of professionals in education and training. As a result of this pursuit for the continuous innovation, CESUR offers a large variety of training in the ICT sector. This is a reflection of the fact that VET must be an adapted training to the changing needs of the current labour market (https://www.cesurformacion.com/formacion-profesional/?filter_familias-profesionales=informatica&query_type_familias-profesionales=or).

As an official online training centre, Cesur has a long-standing experience in online learning. It offers more than 40 different VET degrees, and it has more than 4300 online students. Cesur counts with an e-learning department with a large experience in development of online content and learning platforms. Cesur has its own contents and layout designs. Our e-learning team members are experts working and customizing Moodle platforms, providing technical assistance to our teachers and students. Our contents and the quality of our training programs are exactly the same as in the face-to-face methodology but more flexible and customized to our students. This way, our online students are more dedicated, focused and motivated in their learning process. This also improves the teacher-student communication.

For all these reasons, Cesur easily adapted all its learning offer to the Covid situation from a day to another last March 2019. Not only we count with the technical software and hardware needed to success in this sudden digital transformation, but also we have qualified staff to support teachers and students learning paths through this challenging situation.

As an additional measure, Cesur has for the 2020/2021 academic year webcams in all our classrooms, virtual rooms as well as lessons in streaming.

Regarding the Strategic Quality Plan, CESUR ensures that educational contents are adapted to the official curriculum approved by the Ministry of Education and Ministry of Employment. Moreover, CESUR offers a customized attention to our students (young and adult people) and promotes the use of new technologies in all our trainings. The commitment of CESUR with Quality has been recognised by through three quality seals.

This activity is implemented according to the principles of equality of opportunities regarding access to employment and non-discrimination. The transparency in the process is also warranted.
