Tolosako Inmakulada Lanbide Ikastola (TILI) is a centre which has been organised as a workers’ cooperative since 2004. The decision to set up a cooperative was based on the Basque cooperativist culture and a strong belief in its principles.

In 2005, TILI decided to form part of Ikastolen Elkartea: because we feel part of our society, because we want to teach, learn, work and live in the language of our society – Basque.

These are the characteristics that define our school:

  •   A close interaction with the students.
  •   Initiative and entrepreneurship.
  •   A close relationship with the companies that surround us.
  •   Innovation.
  •   Internationality.
  •   Deep roots in our society.

In the 2017/18 school year, we initiated a new strategy (2017-21) with the following gaim in mind:

“We offer our students an innovative training programme using active methodologies which is based on the most advanced management systems. This training programme guarantees the acquisition of the skills required by companies and society in general. We work in common projects with public health and public sector companies and guarantee the success that our students will have in the field of labour by encouraging their multilingualism, creativity andi nterest in research.”
