The Ministry of Education and Vocational Training and the Autonomous Communities agree to make practices and the school calendar more flexible so that VET students pass the course

The Secretary General for Vocational Training of the MEFP, Clara Sanz, has chaired this working meeting in which the general directors of all the Autonomous Communities have participated with full coordination and collaboration to achieve the objective that all students pass the course despite of exceptional circumstances.

The MEFP and the autonomous communities have agreed to make practices in the workplace more flexible in order to pass the course, extending the period established in the school calendar. This extraordinary measure must be coordinated with the dates of the Evau to allow all students who wish to do so to take the entrance exam to the University.

The duration of the FCT is exceptionally limited to the minimum hours set forth in the basic regulations, that is, 220 hours. Likewise, the FCT module will be exceptionally integrated with a project module so that the objectives associated with the work environment can be addressed. This measure will affect both basic VET, as well as intermediate and higher grade.

Likewise, in relation to the entrance tests to intermediate or higher vocational training for those who do not have the academic requirements for access to these teachings, it has been agreed to postpone them as necessary, even reaching the first half of July.

In addition to these measures, the MEFP has made available to the Autonomous Communities all the digital resources available in the distance vocational training modality, which in total covers 104 training cycles, thus facilitating the continuity of teaching.

During the meeting, 11 new titles and specialization courses were also presented that the Autonomous Communities will have available in their offer for the next academic year 2020-2021.
