«Educational MIR» and teaching profession. An integrated approach

Francisco López Rupérez


In a context in which the «policies based on the teachers» have acquired a major interest in the international level, this contribution focuses its attention on strengthening the teaching profession and its central core: the model of selection and initial training of teachers. From a concept of profession that is typical of robust professions, analyzes the status of the teaching profession and highlights their weaknesses. Later it describes the model of access to specialized medical profession by MIR system (Resident Internal Doctor) and it analyzes the fundamental mechanisms by which the so-called in Spain «educational MIR» can contribute to the strengthening of the teaching profession.

Finally, it proposes and justifies the transposition of MIR model, with the appropriate adaptations, to the educational field in the Spanish system.
