Professional technical training in bread, baking and dairies for high school students.


The Advanced Nucleus in Food Technology (NATA) is a program that offers high school education integrated with courses in Bakery & Confectionery and Milk & Derivatives.

The objective is to train specialized technicians for industries, retail chains and quality control. Created in 2009, it is located at Colégio Estadual Comendador Valentim dos Santos Diniz, in São Gonçalo (RJ), in a partnership between the GPA Institute, the State Department of Education and the Department of Agriculture. NATA develops and encourages practical activities at the pilot plants, monitoring, internal and external internships, scientific initiation works and the participation of students in fairs and congresses in the sector, in addition to a mandatory 120-hour internship.


"NATA and its team of instructors are responsible for most of my knowledge about the matter. Getting back into the classroom was amazing, because it is easier to learn and I had great experiences. I am sure that even after my graduation the School will continue opening doors for my personal and professional development."
