Collaborative and transversal learning between SEK International Schools and UCJC
These workshops for families are the result of the synergies between SEK International Schools and University Camilo José Cela and aims to offer answers to the concerns and doubts that may arise in families in relation to behaviour and habits of children and young people, as well as offering answers to more specific questions related to the school and family environment.
Aware of the importance of collaborative learning in all educational stages, SEK Education Group promotes interdisciplinary projects that foster adaptive learning models for the entire Educational Community, which adapt university teaching and research and bring it closer to social needs.
