Teaching of competences for a culture of democracy in Andorra

The Minister of Education for Andorra, addressing the Committee for Education Policies and Practices of the Council of Europe during an official visit in Strasbourg, announced that the Government of Andorra together with the University of Andorra have decided to modify the state diploma necessary to become a teacher.  This will now include the training required to teach competences for a culture of democracy in accordance with the Competences Framework for a Culture of Democracy, developed by the Council of Europe. This will be an undergraduate university diploma adapted to the European Higher Education Area. In the same vein, it was decided to develop an official Master's Degree in Educational Sciences, a second cycle of university studies adapted to the European Higher Education Area. This will take the form of  a mixed delivery (classroom and distance learning) module that will also include competences for a culture of democracy. This Master will not only be designed for the Andorran population, but will also aim at internationalization, enabling students and professionals from around the world to refine their teacher training.
