Teachers and trainers are indispensable carriers of all the developments in education. Moreover, they have shown impressive commitment in the context of the recent COVID-19 crisis, by making significant efforts to ensure the continuation of the learning and teaching process in unenviable conditions. European teachers and trainers, being the cornerstones of the European Education Area, have a central role in promoting the European dimension of learning and teaching, supporting learners in understanding and experiencing the sense of European identity and belonging. Continuous novelties, as well as challenges, have an effect not only on the competences required, but also on teachers’ well-being. Building on the Council’s work on the Council Conclusions on European Teachers and Trainers for the Future and the Conclusions on countering the COVID-19 crisis in education and training during Croatia’s Presidency, the Conference will present an opportunity to further explore the challenges faced by teachers, as well as possible policy responses in this respect.
