IES Mirador del Genil

  • IES Mirador del Genil is a High School that imparts compulsory secondary education to students aged 12 to 16. It is also an English-Spanish bilingual school since 2010. The centre is located in a rural area of Cordoba province (southern Spain). It is a small center, with a team of 25 teachers (including teacher, counselor, therapeutic pedagogycal teacher and language assistant).

  • Our municipality is losing population as a result of the gradual migration of young people to larger population centers. The only way to avoid this is to create development and opportunities in our own town by ourselves. This is the reason why we decided to introduce the entrepreneurial culture in the school, the collaborative work and the learning of foreign languages.

  • We have made activities related to entrepreneurship like ongoing participation (course 2015/16) in the institutional program 'Andalucia Profundiza' of the Ministry of Education of the Andalusian Govenment (CEJA). With the title of 'Building my own business. A commitment to entrepreneurship and creativity', students had to carry out projects aimed at stimulating learning and initiative by conducting activities that involve how to start up a business related with the olive oil.
