Innovation and quality in educational centres require strategies that are all-inclusive and management processes that are validated, participative and democratic. Specialist training is needed in order to be able to intervene effectively in these processes, and especially to lead them.

A large number of university graduates, many of whom are working in teaching, need and want this type of training, which often cannot be obtained in bachelor's degree courses.

When training is available, however, the format adopted is usually that of traditional in-classroom learning, which has proved unsatisfactory due to strict calendars and timetables, timetable clashes between work and classes, travel problems, etc.

With these needs in mind, the Department of Applied Pedagogy of the the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) has for some time been offering distance and partial-distance training in management and administration of teaching institutions, focusing on both formal and non-formal education. These initiatives have now been brought together in a single programme, which is open to all, rather than in-service only, in line with the new Catalan Law on Education, which emphasises the need for management training. This tendency is expected to be adopted in other Spanish Autonomous Regions, and it will make management training available in the rest of Spain and even in Latin America.

This training is recognised by the Catalan Ministry of Education as a qualification for managerial positions.(Art. 27.2, Decree 155/2010 of 2 November.)


- Critically analyse and evaluate the regulatory framework and the administrative and economic directives which regulate the operation of educational institutions.
- Promote personal change in knowledge, competences, attitudes and skills of educational centre directors, related to their needs in their professional practice, the requirements of the immediate context and of the educational system.

- Efficiently use the procedures and tools for direction and leadership in educational organisations.
- Produce a personal synthesis of the programme shaping it to direction projects.
