The Specialist Degree in Methodology and Assessment of English Teaching and Learning in the Classroom is given in conjunction with ECM (Catholic Schools of Madrid) as a training program for people who are in Spain working on the BEDA Program as Conversation Assistants with the aim of better accommodating their needs and interests.


This course aims to provide training on Spanish education and culture to people, primarily from the United States and Canada, who come to Spain with this aim, as well as to work on the BEDA Program that ECM (Catholic Schools of Madrid) has been implementing in schools for some years with the goal of enhancing English teaching.

 

What is the BEDA program?

 

The BEDA program aims to implement and optimize the effectiveness of English teaching in school. It aims to do so, essentially, using three core ideas: qualitative and quantitative increase in English teaching, programming specific training for teachers and carrying out an assessment that is external to the student body and members of the educational community of the school with an assessor of great prestige, just as Cambridge ESOL.

It consists of gradually introducing bilingual Spanish-English teaching, with the nature of an educational project which strengthens and expands certain aspects of the linguistic educational life of the school, the curriculum and the school environment.

  • Become aware of Spanish law regarding education, as well as the basic structure of the different educational levels and stages and educational principles and methodologies that govern bilingual education.
  • Become aware of the organization of an educational center.
  • Know the role of the conversation assistant.
  • Be able to geopolitically locate Spain in relation to the world and, especially, the European Union.

  • Become aware of Spanish traditions as a source of modern culture.
