Oscar is an experienced school leader and teacher educator at Fundación Educación Católica (Spain) and was granted a Judge Scholarship by the Department of Education of the University of Oxford to read for a part-time Dphil.

Before joining the DPhil programme, Oscar graduated with a distinction at the University of Oxford (MSc in Teaching and Learning) and completed the Certificate in Advanced Education Leadership at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He is one of the leaders of the K2 Erasmus+ Programme TALENTinTBL, which replicates at international level (Ireland, UK, the Netherlands, and Spain) a professional development programme already piloted across his organisation.

Oscar is interested in the design and evaluation of teacher education programmes aimed at improving school effectiveness and driving educational change towards active and competence-led learning at secondary level and, particularly, in the Sixth Form. His research draws on the findings of his Master dissertation, focusing on the evaluation of the effectiveness and the transformative potential of teacher coaching in the Spanish Baccalaureate from a longitudinal and mixed-method approach.
