Teachers and Teaching

There are more than 5 million teachers in Europe. The knowledge, skills and attitudes of each of them are of great importance, and the quality of their teaching has a direct effect upon learners' outcomes. At the same time, the demands made on teachers are increasing and changing, which means that they need support to continuously develop their own knowledge and skills. It is therefore essential that they receive professional development of the highest quality, starting from Initial Teacher Education, through early career support for novice teachers and followed by opportunities for Continuing Professional Development throughout their careers.
