The Teacher Education Policy in Europe (TEPE) network is an academic network that that brings together teacher educators, educational researchers, policy makers, teachers and practitioners from Europe and beyond to discuss and identify key elements that contribute to strengthening teacher education and the quality and professionalism of teachers in schools. The TEPE Network is dedicated to advancing research in and on Teacher Education that can influence policy making. The network builds on previous European collaborative projects in the field of teacher education policy – principally the Thematic Network on Teacher Education in Europe (TNTEE) funded by the European Commission (1996-99) and the (EUDORA) European Doctorate in Teaching and Teacher Education project funded by the European Commission (2000-05).
