The Professional School of Praia da Vitória began its training activity in October 1995 having as promoter the Municipality of Victoria Beach. Since January 2005, is owned by the Foundation for Professional Teaching of Praia da Vitoria.

At the origin of the Foundation for Professional Teaching of Praia da Vitória was the Vocational School of the Municipality of Victoria Beach, created in 1995 by program contract signed between the Regional Secretariat for Education and Culture and the Municipal Hall of Praia da Vitória, the promoter of the institution. The application to the Region of Decree-Law 4/98 of 8 January, by Regional Legislative Decree 30/2000/A of August 11, determined, among other changes, the loss of legal personality of Professional Schools, being obligatorily integrated in another entity.
This was the reason which led to the creation of the Foundation for Professional Teaching of Praia da Vitória, as Collective Entity of Private Law and Type Founding, nonprofit entity that acquired ownership of the of Praia da Vitória Vocational School.

On May 5, 2016 took place the opening ceremony of the new facilities of the Professional School of Praia da Vitória, despite being in operation at the new location, Rua Comendador Francisco José Barcelos, since October 12, 2016 .
