EPP Ramiro was established in March 2013, to satisfy the need for combined academic and vocational training at the lower secondary school level in Ramiro. The three-year courses on offer prepare young people to continue their studies or enter the jobs market, by equipping them with academic, practical and social skills. The school is a result of a partnership with the Angolan oil company ACREP, the Ministry of Education at national and provincial levels and ADPP. Now in its fourth year, EPP Ramiro has 287 students. The first team graduated at the beginning of this year with total of 51 students graduated and, among them, 24 are female.
