In the second half of 2015, the Agency worked on behalf of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to provide a suite of materials on empowering teachers. The results of this work have been summarised in three documents: a literature review, a case study and a methodology overview.
This literature review discusses policy and practice in initial teacher education, continuing professional development and on-going support for teachers and also considers teacher educators’ development. It supports the case study analysis of country policy and practice for teacher education and identifies key challenges. The literature review includes worldwide examples and ensures that the issues addressed by the case study (which draws on European examples) also have global application.
