The Association for Teacher Education in Europe

The Association for Teacher Education in Europe (ATEE) is a non-profit European organization, whose aim is to enhance the quality of Teacher Education in Europe and support the professional development of teachers and teacher educators at all levels.

What is teacher education?

Teacher Education implies all the activities which develop and enhance the professional competencies of teachers, during the initial, induction, and in-service phases of their careers. Such activities could be offered by institutes for higher education, by government departments (or ministries) of education, by schools as employers of teachers, by teachers themselves, and by any other commercial or non-commercial initiative.

The ATEE takes part in a board network of national and international institutions, associations, and governmental bodies. Through our memberships, we cover most of Europe; countries like the United States, Australia, and Israel; and African countries. The ATEE also provides advice to the European Commission.
