The Association for Teacher Education in Europe (ATEE) is a non-profit European organisation, whose aim is enhancing the quality of Teacher Education in Europe and supporting the professional development of teachers and teacher educators at all levels.
Teacher Education implies all the activities which develop and enhance the professional competences of teachers, during 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.
