European Teacher Education for Primary School > Description of the Project:

Description of the Project:

The project will bring together teacher education institutions in 6 different countries to analyze, compare and choose best practices in teacher education as a background for developing a teacher education program for primary schools on a European level. The consortium will develop an integrated programme leading to a full bachelor degree recognized in the participating countries and building on the idea that the best qualified academic staff in the participating institutions should be used to facilitate the education of the coming teacher regardless of the nationality of the staff.
European citizenship and the idea of Europe as a community in a globalized world are given special attention in the subjects and modules developed as well as in the ethos of the project and therefore also in the outcome of the project. The project strongly supports the fact that in the long run nothing is as integrating and essential for building up a common understanding as education.
