The aim of the article is to analyze the perceptions about the Practicum in the process of acquiring professional competences and in the construction of a professional identity within the initial teacher education program of pre-primary and primary teachers of Universidad Autónoma of Barcelona, UAB. We present the results of a case study, which were collected through interviews conducted with tutors, and triangulated with a questionnaire answered by students. We conclude that there is a fragile collaborative work and a weak coordination among tutors, as well as little observation and in situ guidance of the professional practice. We value individual and collective reflection, mediated by the university tutor.
