Teacher recognition in the Nordic countries

The teacher recognition project produced a report on barriers to recognition, procedures in the recognition practice and cooperation within the Nordic countries.

The project sought to

  • identify barriers to the recognition of teachers within the Nordic countries

  • expose best practices in the process of teacher recognition by analysing practice in all countries

  • update our knowledge of Nordic teacher training programmes

  • establish permanent cooperation in the field of teacher recognition

The project report includes:

  • Description of the Nordic ENIC/NARIC offices and their powers in the field of teacher recognition

  • Legal framework of recognition: How does each office interpret and apply the international agreements in this field, including the Nordic agreements, and which problems derive from differences in the interpretation and use of agreements?

  • Barriers to the recognition of specific teacher training programmes

  • The recognition process: Which principles and procedures are the guidelines in teacher recognition in each country?

The report puts forward a number of recommendations for dealing with barriers to recognition and for enhancing cooperation among the Nordic countries.

The project was carried out in 2003/4.
