ETF READY model preparing 21st century educators

The opportunities and challenges to transform education and training are more significant than ever with economic, social, demographic, and technological trends impacting on education and training policy and practice.

The ETF's READY model (Reference model for Educators' Activities and Development in the 21st-centurY) offers a structured way to identify the professional practices and development needs of 21st-century educators which are a highly diverse group of professionals involved in the process of teaching or guiding and facilitating learning who may have different job roles, titles, and responsibilities. 

READY is a flexible reference model that can be used by various education and training stakeholders. Prospective, novice and experienced educators, mentors, professional learning communities and networks, providers of initial education and professional development, administrators, researchers, policymakers, and other VET and/or adult learning stakeholders can use the reference model to identify and improve practices and identify professional learning needs.

Find out more about the model from the video below, the dedicated page on the ETF's Open Space, and it's pilot implementation Israel in 2022 here.

A webinar introducing the model will take place on the 27th April. More details can be found here.
