The "Working-Group" (W-G) is a strategy of organizing work based on the principles of the cooperative learning (Johnson & Johnson, 1989), effective to acquire both learning and transfer to the job in training contexts (Moreno, 2009). It was created an evaluation system for all the teacher training programs in the region of Navarre, and putting it into practice as a pilot way, emphasizing the W-G analysis. Two assessment tools were used: a satisfaction survey (173 cases) and a group self-evaluation survey (16 WG). Results showed that W-G were positively valued, generated learning and were moderately transfered to the work. Moreover, this methodology integrated several factors which in the literature are considered as key for training (motivation, autonomy, among others).
