Contemporary dynamics increasingly demand that individuals commit themselves permanently to personal and professional growth, which implies the permanent development of competencies. In this sense, education professionals are not exempt from these demands, which makes it necessary for them to be constantly updated. Particularly professionals from other fields of knowledge who are not graduates, who enter the educational system, need to take a training program that allows them to nurture and strengthen their competencies to respond effectively to the demands of the educational and pedagogical context in which they will develop their professional activities.

Within the framework of the current regulations in education, Law 115/94, in particular Law Decree 1278 of 2002 (statute of teacher professionalization) in its Article No. 3, defines the professionals of different disciplines, may aspire and access the teaching career. To this end, it is determined that such professionals must take a pedagogy program regulated in decree 2035 of June 2005 or, failing that, take a postgraduate course in education.
