The implementation of the qualification offers of the National Qualifications System entails the intervention of technical-pedagogical teams which integrate different professionals, according to the specificities of each offer.
Teachers teach the various subjects of the sociocultural and scientific training components of professional courses, youth education and training courses, specialised artistic courses, adult education and training courses and technological specialisation courses. They must be qualified to teach the teaching groups defined in general legislation (Decree-Law No. 27/2006, of 10th February and Decree-Law No. 79/2014, of 14th May, in its current wording); within the scope of specialised artistic courses, teachers teach the different subjects of the general, scientific and technical-artistic training components. They must be qualified to teach the teaching groups defined in general legislation and in specific legislation (Ordinance No. 693/98, of 3rd September – Music and Ordinance No. 192/2002, of 4th March - Dance).
Trainers ensure the development of the various Short-Term Training Units (STTU) of the technological training component of professional courses, youth education and training courses and adult education and training courses. They identify the training needs of each candidate, participate in the recognition, validation and certification of competences process, are part of the certification jury, when necessary, and promote and carry out training actions. They must have a higher level qualification suitable to the requirements of their specific interventions, namely professional qualifications for teaching or their own teaching qualifications and a pedagogical competencies certificate (PCC), if they are not exempt.

Pedagogical training and pedagogical certification of trainers are provided by the IEFP, I.P., by higher education establishments and by certified training entities with protocols with the IEFP, I.P., for this purpose.
