In 1986 we began to work in the field of Occupational Training and Social and Labour Insertion in the neighbourhood of El Peñascal, Bilbao. A group of Piarists and educators worried about the high school drop-out rates, the lack of professional qualifications and the high level of unemployment, together with the precarious nature of the work, leading to potential situations of marginality, decided to start a small Plumbing and welding workshop with eight young people.

Since that initial workshop, we have evolved into the present Peñascal Kooperatiba. Currently we have over 150 members of staff, of which about 60 are working partners, we are involved in eight training centres in Bizkaia, Gipuzkoa and Navarra and we are currently promoting seven business projects.
