Cycles A.0

Activating methodologies in VET

The transformation of the teaching-learning model

Ciclos Formativos A.0 is an initiative of the Directorate General for Innovation and Vocational Training to support the transformation of the teaching-learning model towards an active methodology, mainly based on ACbR (Collaborative Learning based on Challenges), which helps to better prepare the VET students in a more complete way.

In order to support and facilitate this methodological evolution, a call is published annually to collect the different projects around this proposal. There are two modalities in which, depending on the number of teaching hours involved, the participants in the projects can get better conditions so that the transition can take place in the most natural way possible.

During the 2020-21 academic year, 30 projects have been registered within the framework of this call, 6 of which have been considered as modality B, with more than 70% of the teaching of one year of the cycle involved in ACbR. These 6 projects, with a duration of 3 academic years, establish the basis on which to achieve sufficient momentum to stabilize this methodological change to which we hope more and more cycles and schools in the community will join, managing to form a network for the near future.

This initiative is part of a more global strategy, the Digital Campus A.0, carried out by the Department of Education, from the Directorate General for Innovation and VET, which seeks to promote the transformation of the VET in our community in various areas: technological, methodological and digital.
