In this work a brief reflection is presented about attitude and competence with the intention of clarifying their complementarity from an educational point of view, recognising two opposed tendencies: the one which identifies attitude (and more specifically, its affective dimension) as a part of the competence, and the other which assumes that attitudes and competencies are similar concepts that are mutually involved. The article is organized in two parts: the first one is focused on the concept, structure, models and development of the attitudes and its link with the competencies and, the second one, where the evaluation process of both concepts is specified and some practical implications to improve educative intervention are illustrated.
