  • A landmark event for higher studies in the Restoration and Preservation of Cultural Heritage
    On 3 July 2013 AQU Catalunya issued the final validation assessment reports for higher studies in Dance, Dramatic Arts, Restoration and Preservation of Cultural Heritage, Design and Music.

    The path to making this landmark event a reality has been long and complex. In the end, however, it turned out to be a pioneering experience in Catalonia and Spain as a whole, in that an agency responsible for quality assurance in the system of higher education and universities validated higher studies taught outside of the universities. At the Escola Superior de Conservació i Restauració de Béns Culturals de Catalunya (ESCRBCC, School of Restoration and Preservation of Cultural Heritage) we are highly satisfied with the entire process that was carried out, on the one hand, because of its importance and, on the other, because of the collective efforts by everybody in the School, which have placed the institution's mission on a firmer footing, which is none other than to train future curators and restorers of our cultural heritage.

  • Validation: A process with a future
    Validation has been a particularly positive process for us in that it has coincided with the fact that Eňlia, which was founded in 2000, only recently became an official School of Dramatic Art. This context of change has allowed us to adopt a comprehensive approach to the adaptation of all aspects concerning organisation and planning in the School to the requirements of the framework (the universities and higher education) in which it operates. The thorough process of validation (in this introductory stage) logically led us to reflect upon our project in terms of parameters that we were not totally familiar with. In spite of this, the approach of the Bologna Plan is particularly suited and perhaps more appropriate to studies in the Arts than in other fields of knowledge. Moreover, it has enabled us to adopt a much more consistent approach to teaching, while at the same time being able to stay true to our own philosophy towards the same.
