Key topics in education in Europe
The teaching profession in Europe: profile, trends and concerns Report I: Initial training and transition to working life: general lower secondary education. Volume 3
The aim of this study is to gain a better insight into the situation characterising the profession in different countries, the way in which it is changing, and the way also in which national policy-makers are attempting to meet the challenges that have been identified. It sets out to analyse how future teachers are prepared for their profession and the skills they are expected to master, to examine the balance or imbalance between supply and demand and, finally, to compare key aspects of teachers’ working conditions. The study also seeks to clarify the interaction between these three major... issues and the impact they have on each other in the various European countries, with a view to identifying broad patterns and trends while at the same time situating them in their national contexts.
