Netherlands: Compulsory professional registration for teachers

Membership of the Register of Teachers would become compulsory from 2017 under a new Bill. The Register began as an initiative of the Education Cooperative (Onderwijscoöperatie), a professional group established in 2011 by five major teaching unions and organisations. Registration has been voluntary since 2012 and is intended to indicate that members keep abreast of the latest developments in their field through regular professional development activity.

Education systems vary enormously across Europe. The Eurydice network explains how they are structured, how they work and how they change in response to new challenges. 

Eurydice's work is coordinated by the European Commission's Education, Culture and Audiovisual Executive Agency, working with a network of national units across all countries participating in Erasmus+, the EU programme for education, training, youth and sport. 

Eurydice at NFER is the Eurydice unit for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  Based at the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), we are jointly funded by the UK Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the European Commission. 

Eurydice supports European cooperation in education by providing information on and analysis of systems and policies. We contribute the national perspective to all network publications (available from the Eurydice network website). In addition, we produce Education in the News, a bi-monthly round up of policy developments across Europe, and a range of policy briefings.  Details of all of these outputs are available on our publications pages.
