Departamento Educación de Navarra
The Department for Education of the Government of Navarra is the official Institution that is responsible for Education in the Spanish self-government region of Navarra.
In the Autonomous Community of Navarra, it is the responsibility of the Department of Education to establish the general conditions and the appropriate means for the real implementation of every aspect of education. This also includes the management of all public Primary, Secondary and Vocational Education. The structure of the Department of Education can be found at the following website: www.educacion.navarra.es. It is integrated in the Government of Navarra, as shown on its web: www.navarra.es This institution manages 172 Public Primary Schools and 59 Public Secondary Schools, involving more than 3.100 teachers. These public schools attend to more than 67.000 students.
Every school has a Guidance Service to provide information to students on academic and social matters. They also provide feedback to parents concerning students’ professional career and problems’ solving. This organization includes a Section of Coeducation devoted to teacher training and advice regarding any aspect related to coeducation. The main project in which it has been involved lately has been the Skolae project for Coeducation. It’s a programme created to accompany and systematise the Learning Pathway set out by the Coeducation Plan for schools of the Department of Education of Navarra, a pioneer in Spain in this field. The programme has reached a wide diffusion in the media around the country, with a big impact in public opinion. The implementation started in 2017 in 16 schools. This year it has been extended to 100 school and the aim is to progressively reach more than 400 schools around the whole region as a core aspect of learning in our system. Rethinking the idea of “school playgrounds” (a long way that some of our schools have already started to walk on) is a perfect subject to be included in the Skolae programme more systematically.
