On January 25th 2018, Teach For Austria, the Vienna Board of Education and the Federation of Austrian Industries held the dissemination event "New Ways into teaching. Gemeinsam Zukunft bilden" in the House of the European Union in Vienna.
More than 80 participants came together to learn more about the NEWTT project, its’ first results and discuss alternative pathways into teaching with trainees of the pilot, project partners and important players of the Austrian education system - such as representatives of the Austrian national and regional school authorities (e.g. Ministry of Education, Science and Research), representatives of universities and teacher training institutes, school leaders, policy makers as well as business representatives.
Stefanie Morgenroth (University Duisburg-Essen) presented the first results of the evaluation of the 2016 trainees. Other highlights of the event were James Darley’s Keynote on “How to make the teaching profession more attractive?" followed by a panel discussion with Patrick Wolf (Vienna Board of Education), Eva Vetter (responsible for the new teacher training curriculum at the University of Vienna), Felix Stadler (Teach For Austria Trainee of the NEWTT pilot) and James Darley.
