The European Commission has set out proposals to improve the quality of teacher training in the EU.

High-quality teaching is a prerequisite for high-quality education and training, which are in turn a powerful determinant of Europes long-term competitiveness and capacity to create more jobs and growth.

If adopted by Member States, the proposals agreed will ensure that the EU has the highly-educated workforce it will need to face up to the pressures of the 21st century.
