FOUNDATION MASAVEU PROFESSIONAL SCHOOL
The María Cristina Masaveu Peterson Foundation undertakes different projects and activities within the field of training and research, in order to continually fulfil one of the Foundation’s aims, namely, training young people and particularly young workers.
Within the field of training young workers, the sponsorship and economic support continually provided by the Foundation to the Masaveu Foundation Training School is particularly noteworthy. Through the Salesian Fathers, this training school has been devoted to the professional training of young Asturians for 50 years.
Our Foundation is a Patron of the Masaveu Foundation and, along with the other Patrons, provides the necessary sponsorship and tutelage to enable the School to continue with its prestigious educational career.
The Masaveu Foundation was founded in 1956 by Pedro Masaveu who, in turn, built the School to fulfil its main mission: professional training.
The Masaveu Foundation celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2012, and it now provides different types of education, without losing sight of professional training. Up to 1997, mechanics and electricity were taught, and at the end of the nineties Intermediate and Advanced Vocational Training Programmes were introduced. Compulsory Secondary Education (ESO) classes and a Social Guarantee course, now known as Initial Vocational Training Programmes (PCPI), have also been available since 1997. With regards to non-regulated education, the school is an INEM-Approved Centre (the Spanish Institute of Employment) and offers Vocational Training and Course for Companies.
