Global Understanding through Education
The European Teacher Education Network was founded in 1988. Since 2018 we are a non-profit organisation (vzw) under Belgium law. The constitutional act can be read here.
We aim to promote a wide range of cooperation, exchange, research, and publication possibilities for:
• universities and institutions engaged in Higher Vocational Education;
• local education and social authorities; and
• relevant associations of teacher and social educators.
