The vocational practice is an experience of 16 hours that students have in different professional settings related to the careers that interest them. This is an opportunity to see how a professional works in his own environment, how is the exercise of the profession of his interest and how is the interaction that exists between careers and different professions.

At CCB it is compulsory for students to have at least one vocational practice during the summer between 10th and 11th grades or during the next October recess week.


  1. Choose a career of your preference to coordinate the corresponding vocational practice.
  2. Select a company where there is a professional who can tutor you during the practice, hopefully in an organization where your parents do not work or in a different section.
  3. Once the contact has been made, request a letter of presentation at the Counselling Office.
  4. Agree with the company, days and hours to participate in processes, activities, routines and working hours of the career professional of interest in the company. The tutor will be in charge of the evaluation of the student's performance at the end of the practice in the OP1 Form.
  5. Fill in the OP2 to tell us about your experience and if it reassured you or not in the career of your interest.
