Alliances with Catalan teaching centres

Representatives from CÉGEP International with the Director of the Québec Government Office in Barcelona, Marjolaine Ricard.

In conjunction with the 6th Québec – Catalonia Joint Cooperation Committee, CÉGEP International carried out its second mission to Catalonia in May to consolidate mobility agreements and promote Québec CÉGEPs. The Québec Government Office in Barcelona actively supported CÉGEP International in setting up its schedule of meetings.

The first mission resulted in identifying strong similarities between Catalonia and Québec with respect to technical training at mid and upper levels. Consequently, CÉGEP International representatives had extremely productive discussions with the Consell Català de Formació Professional (Catalan Government institution responsible for professional academic training). A collaborative agreement between the two groups is expected to be signed shortly.

The following Québec institutions took part in this mission:

  • Cégep André-Laurendeau
  • École nationale d’aéronautique
  • Cégep Limoilou
  • Cégep régional de Lanaudière
  • Cégep Marie-Victorin.

Opening up to the world

CÉGEP International supports Québec CÉGEPS in designing and implementing their internationalization strategies while at the same time contributing to the national and international outreach of the college network. The organization supports its members, particularly through its exchange and mobility projects and student and teacher internships. The most promising sectors for Québec-Catalonia collaboration are aeronautics, transportation logistics, agriculture, interior design and fashion.
