In this document I collect various approaches to the establishment of the competences that mathematics teachers should develop in Elementary School. To do this, first I analyze the role of the notion of competence as part of teachers' education. Next, I focus on the European guidelines that have been used for the design of new qualifications aimed at the teachers' education, with special attention to the Spanish case. Finally, I analyze different papers in research focused on the area of mathematics.
