OECD Education Policy Perspectives

The OECD Directorate for Education and Skills helps countries compare their education policies and experiences, and learn from each other through large scale assessment and surveys and comparative policy analysis. This policy papers series presents analysis for policy makers, practitioners and researchers on a wide range of policy issues covered at OECD: from pre-primary to higher education, from policy design to implementation, from student performance and well-being, to teacher training and practices, to school resources.


Improving the teaching profession in Romania

Romania is one of the few countries in the OECD and EU lacking national teaching standards. This education policy brief shares examples of how clearly defined teacher competency standards can help shape initial teacher education and professional development programmes to focus on pedagogical practices, which are historically weak in Romania, as in much of Eastern Europe. The brief also identifies the advantages and opportunities of restructuring Romania’s current teacher management system to help teachers grow professionally throughout their careers.
