About the Group
Albergaria-a-Velha enjoys a privileged geographic situation, located between the sea, the Aveiro lagoon and the surrounding mountains. The Caima and Vouga rivers have always influenced and contributed to the development of the municipality, mainly in agriculture and livestock breeding, as well as in the implementation of industry, especially small and medium scale manufacturing.
The Albergaria-A-Velha School Group is composed of eleven schools and two school centres, spread throughout the area of the municipality. The schools are distributed across different levels of education, providing integrated cover for the educational needs of the child and youth population of the municipality.
Administration and Management
The Directors and the General Council determine the strategic direction of the Group.
"Pupils would be much more engaged if they understood that good students have immensely more interesting lives."
Education and Training Provision
The School Group offers a diverse range of training to meet the needs of students and the world of business.
It is a point of pride for the School Group when the School Community recognises the merit and utility of our projects
Recognition, Validation and Certification of Competencies in formal, non-formal and informal learning contexts.
So much more than just classes
We are proud to have our projects and clubs recognised by the community. At the Albergaria-a-Velha School Group we want to do much more than just give classes.
What they say about us
TGPSI course student
At AAV Secondary School I completed the TGPSI (IT Management and Programming Technician) course, which gave me many professional opportunities, in an area I’m passionate about. The course opens a lot of doors in the job market, as well as for further studies. I carried out different projects in several companies and took part in several competitions. I’m grateful to the AAV School Group, and the teachers who guided me throughout the course

When I was in the 9th grade I wasn’t sure what path to follow, then I decided to go for the Computer Science Course at AAV Secondary School. Making the decision to stay at school in Albergaria was the right choice, I learnt a lot throughout the course and I have been able to put it into practice in various internships
