Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word teacher education.


  1. Teacher education

    Teacher education refers to the policies and procedures designed to equip prospective teachers with the knowledge, attitudes, behaviors and skills they require to perform their tasks effectively in the classroom, school and wider community. Although ideally it should be conceived of, and organised as, a seamless continuum, teacher education is often divided into these stages: ⁕initial teacher training / education; ⁕induction; ⁕teacher development or continuing professional development. There is a longstanding and ongoing debate about the most appropriate term to describe these activities. The term 'teacher training' seems to be losing ground, at least in the U.S., to 'teacher education'.
