Teachers: Contributing to the EU's future

04-10-2019

Among all the factors that contribute to the school environment, it is considered that teachers have the greatest impact on pupils’ learning outcomes. Their work is celebrated on World Teachers’ Day, every 5 October since 1994. This is an occasion to honour the teaching profession worldwide, take stock of achievements, and address some outstanding issues, notably how to attract and retain the brightest minds and young talents in the profession.

Among all the factors that contribute to the school environment, it is considered that teachers have the greatest impact on pupils’ learning outcomes. Their work is celebrated on World Teachers’ Day, every 5 October since 1994. This is an occasion to honour the teaching profession worldwide, take stock of achievements, and address some outstanding issues, notably how to attract and retain the brightest minds and young talents in the profession. This infographic presents data on teachers in the EU, looking for instance at the age profile of teachers in different EU Member States, at pupil-teacher ratios, at the split of men and women in teaching jobs, at requirements for continuing professional development and at teachers' salaries in the different Member States.

This European Implementation Assessment has been provided to accompany the work of the European Parliament’s Committee on Culture and Education in scrutinising the implementation of the Erasmus+ programme. The Erasmus+ programme for Union action in the field of education, training, youth and sport was launched on 1 January 2014 and will run until 31 December 2020. It brings together seven successful programmes which operated separately between 2007 and 2013 (the Lifelong Learning Programme, five international cooperation programmes and the Youth in Action programme), and also adds the area of sports activities. The opening analysis of this Assessment, prepared in-house by the Ex-Post Impact Assessment Unit within EPRS, situates the programme within the context of educationpolicy, explains its legal framework and provides key information on its implementation. The presentation is followed by opinions and recommendations of selected stakeholders. A separate chapter is dedicated to the sport, which is the new element of the Erasmus+ programme. Input to the EIA was also received from two independent groups of experts representing the Technical University of Dresden and the University of Bergen, and the Turku University of Applied Sciences.- The first research paper presents implementation of Key Action 1 (KA1) – Learning mobility of individuals in the field of education, training and youth.- The second research paper presents implementation of Key Action 2 (KA2)– Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices in the field of education, training and youth. The two research papers, containing key findings and recommendations, are includedin full as annexes to the in-house opening analysis.

Innovative Schools: Teaching & Learning in the Digital Era

11-08-2015

The digital revolution is transforming our work, our organisations and our routines. It is transforming the way children and young people play, access information, communicate with each other and learn. But, so far, this revolution has not transformed most schools or most teaching and learning process in classrooms. There is no doubt that education has an important role to play in increasing the European competitiveness and reducing unemployment, but what can policy makers do to take full advantage ...

The digital revolution is transforming our work, our organisations and our routines. It is transforming the way children and young people play, access information, communicate with each other and learn. But, so far, this revolution has not transformed most schools or most teaching and learning process in classrooms. There is no doubt that education has an important role to play in increasing the European competitiveness and reducing unemployment, but what can policy makers do to take full advantage of emerging technologies in education while avoiding their downsides? With the objective of shedding some light on how Europe is performing (within the education field) in the "digital revolution" and to how strongly it is embedded both in school curricula and in teachers' education, the CULT Committee requested Policy Department B to organise a workshop on "Innovative Schools - teaching & learning in the digital era". The present document is the compilation of the background papers and power point presentations prepared for the workshop.

Youth Education & Entrepreneurship

11-08-2015

Europe 2020 focuses strongly on young people, with a headline target of reducing early school-leaving and increasing tertiary attainment. Two other headlines also share a clear youth dimension - to reduce the risk of poverty and to increase the share of the population in employment. Because education is paramount in shaping young people's attitudes, skills and culture, it is vital that entrepreneurship education is addressed from an early age. After all, entrepreneurship is not solely about business ...

Europe 2020 focuses strongly on young people, with a headline target of reducing early school-leaving and increasing tertiary attainment. Two other headlines also share a clear youth dimension - to reduce the risk of poverty and to increase the share of the population in employment. Because education is paramount in shaping young people's attitudes, skills and culture, it is vital that entrepreneurship education is addressed from an early age. After all, entrepreneurship is not solely about business creation, but also about setting the right environment for the development of a skilled, innovative, entrepreneurial workforce able to anticipate change and face challenges. With the overall objective of shedding some light on how far Member States have gone (in terms of strategies) in promoting entrepreneurship and how strongly it is embedded both in school curricula and in teachers' trainings/attitudes, the CULT Committee requested Policy Department B to organise a workshop on "Youth education & entrepreneurship". The present document is the compilation of the background papers and power point presentations prepared for the workshop.

Tutkimuksella tarjotaan Euroopan parlamentin kulttuuri- ja koulutusvaliokunnalle tietoa opettajien ammattitaidosta perusasteen kouluissa Euroopassa. Siinä arvioidaan yksittäisten opettajien ja opettajien kouluttajien näkökulmasta opettajien peruskoulutuksen, uran alkuvaiheessa annettavan tuen ja jatkuvan ammatillisen kehittymisen tilaa Euroopassa. Tutkimuksessa selvitetään, missä määrin nämä opettajankoulutuksen jatkumon osat auttavat opettajia kohtaamaan luokkahuoneissa, kouluissa ja järjestelmän ...

Tutkimuksella tarjotaan Euroopan parlamentin kulttuuri- ja koulutusvaliokunnalle tietoa opettajien ammattitaidosta perusasteen kouluissa Euroopassa. Siinä arvioidaan yksittäisten opettajien ja opettajien kouluttajien näkökulmasta opettajien peruskoulutuksen, uran alkuvaiheessa annettavan tuen ja jatkuvan ammatillisen kehittymisen tilaa Euroopassa. Tutkimuksessa selvitetään, missä määrin nämä opettajankoulutuksen jatkumon osat auttavat opettajia kohtaamaan luokkahuoneissa, kouluissa ja järjestelmän tasolla esiintyviä haasteita. Siinä myös arvioidaan alalla aiempien suositusten perusteella tehtyjä uudistuksia. Tutkimuksen lopuksi esitetään toimintapoliittisia suosituksia siitä, kuinka opetuksen laatua voidaan edelleen parantaa opettajankoulutuksen avulla.

Digital opportunities for education in the EU

31-03-2014

The world of education is currently undergoing massive transformation as a result of the digital revolution. In the European Union (EU), children become active online from the age of 7, and 76% of EU households have access to broadband Internet. However, research shows that early use of digital technologies is not necessarily linked to good digital competencies. As jobs are becoming more 'knowledge and digital skills-intensive', continued investment in upgrading education and training systems will ...

Sexuality Education in the EU: "Sex education" in a broader social context

03-02-2012

Against the background of a vibrant, mobile EU, in which young Europeans are exposed to many sexual health risks, the issue of how to give young people the tools to make informed sexual choices remains both crucial and hotly debated.
