Programme profile

Specific learning outcomes of the Programme

The 2nd cycle degree programme in Science of Continuing Education and Lifelong Learning aims to produce professionals capable of playing highly qualified roles in the arrangement of seminars and services targeting adults with a view to vocational training, adult education, professional catch-up and requalification, counselling and skill balancing, return to work and lifelong learning. In this area our country falls short of the Lisbon objectives laid down by the European Union for all member states. These professional figures must be able to work with schools, training institutions and cultural organisations, the business and company system, educational and cultural associations.

To train these professional figures, the degree programme offers a series of course units divided into theory (largely legal and social-pedagogical) and practical skills (in the social, psychological and pedagogical fields); there will also be internships with organisations providing information and counselling policies, training seminars and (formal and informal) lifelong learning services, as well as educational and socio-cultural community engagement for adults (from young adults to seniors).

Graduates in Science of Continuing Education and Lifelong Learning complete their studies with knowledge of the English language to level B2. Study may include both acquisition of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and compulsory attendance of lessons, in line with the criteria specified by the degree programme and consistent with the Academic Guidelines.
