Justification

The direct reference to the proposed title is the initial training course that the Universidad de Murcia has been teaching for the purposes of issuing the Certificate of Pedagogical Aptitude (hereinafter CAP) for more than 35 years. The current legal framework had entrusted to the Institute of Education Sciences (hereinafter, ICE) integrated in each university, the pedagogical and didactic training of university students (architects, engineers, graduates, technical architects, technical engineers and graduates in possession of the degree ) who aspired to dedicate themselves to secondary education and established the completion of the two cycles of the CAP as an essential requirement to be eligible for admission to the teaching bodies of the mentioned level, with the exception of degrees that included equivalent training, as well as other cases excepted by law.

It should not be forgotten, however, that another referent immediately prior to the one indicated is the Initial Training Course for Secondary Teachers (FIPES) taught by the School of Teaching of Middle Schools (Delegation of Murcia), and whose study plan was structured in three blocks: educational assumptions, special didactics and practices. The oldest files (according to the files of the ICE of the Universidad de Murcia ) date from the academic year 1963/1964. However, Decree 1678/1969, of July 24, on the creation of the Institutes of Educational Sciences (BOE n. 195 of 8/15/1969), in accordance with the provisions of the General Education Law, created within the state universities the ICEs, entrusting to them among other missions those that the Middle School Teacher Training School had been carrying out, which would later be extinguished.banner, books, globe DarkWorkX / Pixabay
