The ABCs of teacher selection

The selection of teachers for employment and candidates for initial teacher education (ITE) is important as it is a key factor of teacher effectiveness. Improving the ways in which prospective teachers are selected benefits children’s educational outcomes and a country’s social and economic health. The EU-funded EduSelect project is exploring various commercial platforms (e.g. spin-out or other start-up company, licensing arrangement etc.) from which to leverage its teacher selection research into widespread international application. The short-term impact of the proposal will be the improvement of the ways in which education organisations (ITE programmes and potential employers) can gather and use data to make decisions about selecting prospective teachers. The long-term impact will be the improvement of the quality of the teacher workforce.
