IES Aynadamar

Brief description of the school

Founded in 1981, IES Aynadamar is a state vocational school located  in the northern district of Granada within the limits of the University Campus of La Cartuja and close to the Monastery of La Cartuja. This situation has been ideal for collaborative arrangements with the University of Granada, whose students have been doing their teacher training courses here for many years.

Aynadamar is an Arabic name meaning “Water Spring of Tears”. This spring is currently called Fuente Grande and is placed in the nearby town of Alfacar, very well-known for its connection with the famous poet and writer Federico García Lorca, who was killed in that surrounding area during the Spanish Civil War.

As a mainly  vocational school, one of our major priorities has been to connect our students with the real working   world through their training placement period (FCT) in enterprises such as hospitals, laboratories, Spas, beauty salons, etc. This internship period lasts three months, once the students’ academic instruction has been completed.

Although IES Aynadamar started as a vocational training college in 1983 a Spanish Educational Reform was  introduced by the Spanish Government and Compulsory Secondary and Post-secondary Education were included in the school curriculum, thus coexisting with vocational studies.

At present the school offers Post-secondary education and Vocational Training Education of two professional families: Health and Beauty.
