Abstract

The “(r)evolution” of the literacy concept and our duty as Languages’ Teachers’ Trainers at the Faculty of Education and Social Work in Valladolid’s University (Spain), guides this research in progress. Our research develops in the framework of the Spanish Higher Education System, within the development of the eight key competences established by the European Council, for the Education and Training of the European citizens for lifelong learning in the knowledge society. We focus on the competences 1, 2 and 4: Communication in the mother tongue, Communication in foreign languages and Digital competence, both as essential competences in the professional language’s teacher’s profile and as a challenge in the Teacher’s Education and Training in the Spanish government policies context.
