Challenges that work on the Professional Development Competency:
The teacher actively participates in the actions required for professional development.
Each teacher’s ability to implement specific methodologies in the classroom, as well as to organise themselves around the educational objectives, is key to guaranteeing teaching processes and students’ learning results. Therefore, the professional development of teaching staff must correspond to the necessary characteristics and competencies so they can apply the agreed teaching methodology, controlling the diverse variables and their relationship with the learning objectives and purposes they wish to achieve.
This development includes welcoming newcomers, their participation, the alignment of teaching practices with the common methodology of the centre, the spaces for shared reflection on education practice, their ability to live by the values they aim to teach, the detection of training needs, assessment of their competencies and recognition of appropriate practices, among others.

3. EFFECTIVE ASSESSMENT MEETINGS
This skill will enable teachers to coordinate and/or participate in an assessment session of a teaching team, as a space for teachers to share, to analyse the education process, the evolution and results obtained by students to help improve the learning.
