This internship is supervised by teachers from the following Departments: Department of Language and Literature Education, and of Social Sciences Education, Department of Mathematics and Science Education, Department of Teaching of Musical, Artistic and Corporal Expression, Department of Basic, Evolutive and Educational Psychology, and Department of Applied Pedagogy.


The training activities are structured as follows:

Individual or group conferences

  • Presentation, exchange, discussion and assessment of the observations carried out in the classroom, from a theoretical and practical perspective.
  • Design and analysis of a proposal / intervention.


  • Observation and analysis of everyday situations in the center of practice and in the classroom..

Autonomous work

  • Search for information and documentation aimed at the preparation and presentation of documents and work derived from the practicum.
  • Preparation of a proposal / intervention.
  • Completion of a practicum learning folder.

As a common axis of these training activities, we emphasize the need for reflection on the learning process itself and the evaluation of the professional improvement experienced.

Calendar. The calendar of the internship, the seminars and some aspects of the memory of this practicum can vary for those students who do it linked to a National or International stay through the UAB exchange programme Bressola, Richmond, Munich ...), an ERASMUS or SICUE programme. In order to adapt the calendar or to do the internship in the workplace, it is necessary to comply with the criteria established by the regulations and request it through the procedures of the Faculty reported on the website.

Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.

In the same vein as Practical II, taken in 3rd year, requirements for being assessed for Practical IV are 100% attendance at the practice center hours; and compliance with a minimum of 80% attendance at the Faculty's tutorial seminars. Each of the assessment activities (learning folder, stay at the center and tutorials) must be reached (with a minimum grade of 5) to pass Practicum IV. If a block of activities is failed and the average with the rest of the blocks is higher than 5, by default the final qualification of the internship will be 4.

To pass this subject, the student needs to show good general communication skills, both orally and in writing, and a good command of the language or vehicular languages listed in the teaching guide. In all activities (individual and group), linguistic correction, writing and formal aspects of presentation will therefore be considered. Students must be able to express themselves fluently and correctly and must show a high degree of understanding of academic texts.

Before submitting any evidence of learning, it is necessary to check that the sources, notes, textual citations and bibliographical references have been written correctly following the APA regulations and in accordance with the documentation that is summarized in the following UAB source: https://ddd.uab.cat/record/113512

Students must show an attitude compatible with the profession. If this is not the case, at any time during the stay, both the practice center and the university can decide that the student must stop the stay at the center. In these cases, there will be contact between the mentor and the tutor, and the justified internship report will be drawn up showing that the student cannot continue doing the internship. If this happens, this person will automatically suspend the practicum (the remaining numerical grade will be a 3). Likewise, total orpartial plagiarism of one of the assessment activities and/or copying in an assessment test is a direct reason to fail the subject (the remaining numerical grade will be a 3).

In this sense, the student must comply with the regulatory framework for practices https://www.uab.cat/web/practicum/normativa-1345881466711.html. Following the academic regulations, this subject does not include the possibility of a single assessment. Likewise, the PIV must be done in a different center from the PII, except in special cases that will be duly assessed by the coordination of practices. You cannot do the internship at a center where there are first-order relatives or where you work without authorization from the university coordination.

The Learning Folder must be handed in on Friday, January 12, 2024.
