Founded in 1990, SPEL means “Society for the Promotion of School Establishments”. It was constituted by a group of experienced teachers, who wanted to create schools that would not only teach the students but also assist them psychologically and socially. Therefore they created a school for VET and they strategically located it in a region of high unemployment and social problems.

In its 29 years of existence, SPEL expanded their good practices by acquiring participations in other schools located in problematic areas.

These schools are now administered by a team with experience in working with youngsters and adults of difficult backgrounds and the principle-of-action is the engagement of all the school staff in providing case-to-case solutions to the problems of the students.
