The “New Way for New Talents in Teaching” project, also named NEWTT, was proposed to define innovative, value-added ways to bring new talent into teaching, and ultimately provide a meaningful solution for EU-wide challenges in providing equal access to school education due to teacher shortages, teaching quality and limited teacher force diversity. This project is co-financed by the European Union through the Erasmus+ grant and is run by a consortium of 15 partners.
NEWTT consists of piloting and testing different alternative pathways to teacher certification in 5 European countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Latvia, Romania, and the Basque Region of Spain) that are currently or will soon be facing shortages of effective teachers overall and especially in schools serving underprivileged communities (e.g., poor students, students from ethnic minorities, students from disadvantaged groups).
