The 2013 Act on the Improvement of the Quality of Education, which modifies the 2006 Education Act, states that the Education Authorities may cooperate with other Public Authorities with powers in the field of Adult Education and, in particular, with Employment Authorities, as well as with local governments and social agents. For detailed information on the organisation and institutions providing Adult Education, see the article on Institutions Providing Adult Education and Training.

Teaching staff in the provision offered by Education Authorities

The teaching staff belonging to public educational institutions providing Adult Education comprise civil servants of the different non-university teaching bodies, in line with the educational levels and programmes offered: School teachers, Technician teachers of Vocational Training, Secondary Education teachers and teachers of official language schools. For detailed information on these teaching bodies, see the article on Conditions of Service for Teachers Working in Early Childhood and School Education.

Teachers who provide Adult Education leading to the obtaining of an academic or professional certificate must hold the qualifications generally required to provide the relevant education. For detailed information on these teachers’ initial training, see the article on Initial Education for Teachers Working in Early Childhood and School Education. The Act on the Improvement of the Quality of Education also states that Education Authorities should provide teachers with the training necessary for meetingthe characteristics of adults.

Exceptionally, in the case of official language school teachers, foreign professionals who do not hold the required certificate may be hired as specialist teachers depending on their qualifications and the needs of the education system. Also exceptionally, in the case of Intermediate and Advanced Vocational Training, it is possible to hire professionals without the required certificate who work in the relevant field, depending on their qualifications and the needs of the education system. These incorporations have a labour or administrative nature, in compliance with the relevant regulations.

Teaching staff in the provision offered by Employment Authorities

The requirements for the teaching staff providing Vocational Training for employment depend on the type of education provided. Thus, there are several trainers who take part in the various initiatives carried out in the field of Vocational Training for employment:

  • Instructors-trainers, who provide technical contents at a theoretical level.
  • Technical teachers, who provide technical and practical contents related to Vocational Training, in situations closer to the reality of work.

More specifically, in the case of the training leading to the obtaining of Certificates of professional experience, trainers must meet the requirements established in the Royal Decrees regulating them.

If the training provided is not linked to the obtaining of Certificates of professional experience, trainers must meet the requirements specified in the training specialisation programme. In order to be provided, the specialisation must appear in the File of Training Specialisations of the State Public Employment Service.

The teaching staff that provide demand training not linked to the obtaining of Certificates of professional experience must meet the requirements established by the companies responsible for its management.

In general, in the case of alternance training, the theoretical part is provided by teachers with a high educational level, while the practical part is provided by qualified professionals with proven experience.

For detailed information on the types of training and general characteristics of Vocational Training for employment, see section Provision targeting the transition to the labour market.
