COVID-19 release


CETT is a higher education center whose premises and facilities constitute the ideal environment for active learning to occur and for student life to take place with the highest academic quality and all safety requirements.

It is a center that connects people, a hub that links academia and businesses and the public administration sector; we are committed to those who live the learning process as an impulse for growth and as an opportunity to attain their life goals through interaction with the environment and the people around them. Thanks to CETT’s role as a driver for change in the sector, students can live a unique learning experience which mirrors real life and enables them to face and anticipate new challenges and emerging trends.

We make a firm commitment to our community and country and we foster a constant spirit of transformation and that is why CETT adds value in order to make our sector more professional and sustainable. This is the main reason why CETT is sparing no effort to plan the new academic year ahead so lectures can take place face-to-face in the premises, with the utmost safety and guaranteeing the greatest teaching quality.

To provide the highest safety standards, our center has devised several measures to be implemented next year, for instance limiting classroom capacity, introducing staggered students ‘arrival and extending opening hours, with the aim of starting classes in 2020/21 with the greatest safety.

As far as teaching quality is concerned, CETT is facing the near future safe in the knowledge that we have reacted efficiently and exemplarily during this health crisis by swiftly adapting to online teaching. This rapid adaptation has enabled us to continue with our study programs and with the required course assignments online; the results have been positive and both students and teaching staff have valued the experience very positively. The circumstances we have lived have helped us be ready to implement a hybrid teaching model should the sanitary conditions make it necessary. This model would combine face-to-face teaching and synchronic online teaching an would require adapting teaching methodologies.

Our students are our raison d’être, and therefore we strive to continue to train the future professionals of the tourism, hospitality and gastronomy sectors. We have a prepared teaching staff, equipped with the necessary tools and teaching techniques, who will undoubtedly use all their resources at hand to be able to still deliver their teaching when and if the circumstances require it.

As a leading higher education center we assume great responsibility towards the community, but particularly towards the student community and their families who trust in us; this is why we want to reassure them that we will continue to train young talented people who have chosen this sector to pursue their careers.

We are future. #CETTisFuture

CETT Fundació, sensible a las consecuencias generadas por la COVID-19 y con la voluntad de facilitar la continuación de estudios de los estudiantes del CETT afectados por las circunstancias que se derivan de la COVID-19, ha aprobado una dotación extraordinaria para el curso 2020/2021, que se añade a las becas de continuidad que otorga anualmente.

En 2019, el CETT destinó a los programas de ayuda de continuidad de estudios un total de 76.900€ y, en 2020, aumentará en 50.000€ esta suma para atenuar los perjuicios económicos directos que ha causado la COVID-19 a parte del alumnado. Estas becas extraordinarias se añaden a su programa de ayudas que convoca anualmente y que fomenta el esfuerzo, la internacionalización y el rendimiento tanto académico como profesional.

En cuanto a las becas de continuidad de estudios que convoca cada año el CETT, con el objetivo de que el alumnado que lo requiera tenga la oportunidad de finalizar su formación en curso, este año se modifican algunos requisitos y se avanza el período de presentación y de resolución de las becas a los meses de junio y julio, respectivamente, en vez de hacerlo en septiembre y octubre, para poder confirmar la ayuda antes de realizar la matrícula para el próximo curso.

CETT Fundació trabaja desde sus inicios para promover la generación y transmisión de conocimiento en turismo, hotelería y gastronomía con una firme apuesta por la investigación aplicada, la formación y el apoyo a iniciativas innovadoras de carácter social, a través, entre otras, de becas y ayudas como las que destinará este año a facilitar los estudios a personas afectadas por la COVID-19, para que puedan continuar formándose en el centro universitario.
