On Tuesday 4th June 2017 the dissemination event "New Ways into Teaching: Gemeinsam Zukunft bilden" took place in Austria. It was organized by our Austrian project partners Teach For Austria (TFA), the Federation of Austrian Industries (FAI) and the Vienna Board of Education (VBE). At the beginning of the event Heinrich Himmer (VBE), Christian Friesl (IV) and Walter Emberger (TFA) stressed the importance of different ways into the teaching profession.
More than 60 stakeholders from the school edcuation area in Austria used this opportunity to learn more about the project, and the alternative and traditional pathways into the teaching profession. They also had the opportunity to discuss the challenges and developments in the education system. Marie Hamer from the Institute of Teaching in the United Kingdom did the keynote speech on "The teacher’s developmental journey towards mastery".
