Creating a company is not an easy task; therefore, Miguel Altuna participates in the Urratsbat project promoted by the Vice-Ministry of Vocational Training and is committed to supporting its students, former students and anyone who is related to the centre and interested in creating a new company, turning Miguel Altuna into a business incubator.
If the business projects so require, the participants of the program may also use other facilities, such as the centre’s workshops to make the prototypes of the product under study.
For this reason, we have:
A responsible person at Miguel Altuna at the disposal of the promoter throughout the process.
An Entrepreneur’s Office, at Miguel Altuna properly equipped, so that the necessary work can be carried out in the process of creating your company.
Possibility of using Miguel Altuna’s equipment/facilities during the launching phase.
Comprehensive advisory service to help entrepreneurs turn their business idea into a business reality.
In the 2017-2018 academic year, all the training cycles of the Miguel Altuna of Bergara will be offered under this learning model.
The central element on which the learning model is articulated is the CHALLENGE-BASED COLLABORATIVE LEARNING.
A problematic situation is posed, it is transformed into a challenge and the whole process is oriented towards obtaining a result.
This work proposal does not fit the structural model as we have known it up to now; elements such as timetables, evaluations, classroom configuration, etc. in their current format are no longer valid and need to be rethought and consequently redefined.
With the aim of promoting innovation in SMEs, we are part of a network formed by VET centres and we put at your disposal all our infrastructure and accumulated knowledge.

Focusing on the driving companies of the region and with an eye on future trends, the hubs identify and prioritize the necessary differential capabilities. To this end, we coordinate with leading companies in the Basque Country that help us to identify these capabilities and propose the initiatives and projects to be developed. Miguel Altuna Lanbide Heziketa participates in the Advanced Manufacturing hub.
This is a learning process that blends lessons with in-company training and apprenticeship periods. Students attend classes at Miguel Altuna and in turn have a contract for training and apprenticeship in the company for which they receive a salary.

We believe that nowadays it is of utmost importance to be up to date and respond to the needs demanded by the pedagogical and industrial development, that is why some years ago we considered that going beyond our borders could be a great opportunity to open new ways to our concerns.
At this moment we can say that it has been an interesting and very satisfactory experience. We started this journey in 2008, with the first international project MAIATZ-SIMULFORM, and since then we have been part of many projects, in four of them as coordinators: COOP-PBL- IN VET, FEM FORGING, KNOW 3D TECH, Ebridge 2 VET Mobility, EntraiMo edo eta DOST.
In addition to these projects that are already completed, we are currently involved in two other international projects, such as Engender and Vetriangle. The added value that this experience has given us has been reflected in a better preparation of our teachers, which translates into a better preparation of our students, being directly benefited, of course, the companies of the region with which we collaborate.
Seeing the results obtained, it leads us to have the firm disposition to continue working in this direction.
