The growing involvement of the public authorities in improving the quality of life of people with disabilities (remember the Law for the Promotion of Personal Autonomy or the extraordinary growth of services in recent decades, both in our Community and in the rest of Spain), indicates that there will be: Training needs arising from the generational turnover of professionals. Improving the staffing of agencies and institutions. Acquisition of new professional profiles resulting from the evolution of services. Based on these reflections, there is a clear need for an officialpostgraduate training programme that specifically contributes to training professionals. The aim is to provide a benchmark and a specific training proposal for the sector.
