A few days ago, the government approved the reform proposal for initial and continuing education and for the recruitment of secondary school teachers, aspects that have long been awaiting renewal action.
Therefore, the release of the last volume of the publishing series, “Eurydice Italy booklets” entitled Teachers in Europe: career, professional development and well-being, dedicated to the figure of the teacher in a comparative European key, is placed in a national context in which the debate on issues related to this profession is still open and lively.
The booklet contains the Italian translation of the Eurydice network report, Teachers in Europe: Careers, Development and Well-being, which focuses on lower secondary school teachers and which combines Eurydice data based on national legislation with data on practices and teachers’ perceptions, drawn from the OECD TALIS 2018 international survey; it therefore provides evidence on both policies and practices in a comparative key.
The study includes all 27 EU member states, plus the United Kingdom, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey.
What is Eurydice?
Eurydice is the European network that collects, updates, analyses and disseminates information on the policies, structure and organization of European education systems. Established in 1980 on the initiative of the European Commission, the network is made up of a European unit based in Brussels and various national units. Since 1985, Indire has been the seat of the Italian national unit.
