Recruiting and Preparing Teachers Through an Alternative Programme - A European Policy Experiment on the Teach For All Approach in Five Countries
Currently, some EU member states are facing an acute shortage of teachers. ‘A New Way for New Talents in Teaching’ (NEWTT) is a project funded by the European Commission in five European countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Spanish Basque Country, Latvia and Romania). The funding was provided in view of educational policy challenges and in order to support innovations that show the potential to inspire policy reform.In a quasi-experimental design the Teach For All approach of recruiting, selecting, and preparing academics who did not go through an established teacher education programme is tested as a possible response to this challenge.
