Enhancing Competences and Motivation in the Education Profession
Making sure that Europe’s teachers have the essential competences they require in order to be effective in the classroom is one of the keys to raising levels of pupil attainment. Encouraging teachers to continue developing and extending their competences is vital in a fast-changing world.
The development of key competences, their validation and the provision of competence-oriented education, training and learning should be supported by establishing good practices for better support of educational staff in their tasks and improving their education, for updating assessment and validation methods and tools, and for introducing new and innovative forms of teaching and learning.
Supporting innovation, inclusion, quality and achievement in education and training;
Professional learning opportunities and support for educators at all phases of their careers;
Care for well-being of teachers, trainers and educational staff;
Increasing the attractiveness of the teaching profession;
Facilitating networking, knowledge sharing and mobility among institutions.
What are the competences (knowledge, skills and attitudes) educators need? And what policies and practical provisions can support teachers to acquire and develop them throughout their careers?
