Reform of Secondary Education Teacher Training in Spain has been articulated from the new regulation of masters degrees. Considering teaching a regulated profession, the ministerial regulations define some compulsory basic requirements and let each university to design their specific program.
With the purpose of knowing and assessing the Practicum, a research which involved 85% of public universities and 88% of private higher education institutions providing the Master Program in Teaching in Secondary Education has been conducted. The overall results reveal a good conceptual harmony, some organizational diversity and a significant operational weakness in the documentation concerning the Practicum.
