Why UAO CEU?

1. Double qualification

Abat Oliba CEU University is a pioneer in the methodology that allows students to combine two qualifications and gain two degrees in five years. UAO CEU offers the double qualification in early childhood education and primary education, that allows you to broaden the professional capital of our future teachers.

This double degree combines the best of both courses: care for the youngest students and specialisation in English, special education, physical education and musical education.

We prepare teachers to take part in the development of knowledge. This is achieved through participation in methodically based educational research projects as well as the development and application of new methodologies, techniques and processes in the world of education.

The aim of this double degree is to shape teachers that combine high technical and scientific capabilities in the tasks they carry out with the educational skills to fill the important role of being an excellent teacher.

2. Experience

Abat Oliba CEU University offers a solid, expansive and professional course structure which brings together university-level educational experience from the area of humanities, teacher-training colleges in Vigo and Seville and the CEU group's educational centres all over the country.

Quality and regulation

ADMISSION PROFILE

Students must be interested in education and see the teaching profession a vocation dedicated to the individual and common good, as it is understood by most cultural traditions, ours in particular. Similarly, they must feel an inclination to the well-being of children at the early childhood education age. Without this, it will be hard to take on the inherent difficulties of teaching children at this level of development.

They must have the intellectual capacity to adapt to the cognitive conditions of their students and know how to adapt teaching methods to most efficiently achieve their teaching objectives.

Communication must come naturally, not just the written and spoken word, but through other media that elicit an active response from students, such as music, drawing, etc.

They must also know how to work in a team, both in concrete teaching tasks, as well as in more complex institutional backgrounds, such as schools.

An important condition for aspiring educators at the early childhood stage is the ability to mediate and resolve conflicts both in the classroom as well as in other areas of the educational community. In particular, students must know how to communicate with families, always respecting the schools subsidiary roles to parents.

OBJECTIVES

  • To have a solid understanding of the historical, philosophical, psychological and teaching foundations of education, children from 0 to 12 and the school system.
  • To have a solid understanding of content from different early childhood and primary education disciplines.
  • To gain practical and applied teacher training covering all disciplines and school organisation.
  • To develop skills to work professionally and efficiently, both individually and in a team, for the good of the students. Graduates will be able to cater to each individual circumstance and act as a subsidiary collaborator with parents' educational work.
  • To stay constantly up to date with the latest knowledge and abilities, particularly when it comes to the changes that the information society is going through.
  • To occupy a valuable space in the school and sociocultural sphere, particularly regarding the relationship between schools and families.
  • To learn scientific skills to be able to implement new contributions to the world of teaching in any of their fields.
