Study on diversity within the teaching profession - expert for Greek and Cypriot national reports

IES worked with Ecorys on a project for the European Commission looking at diversity within the teaching profession, with a particular focus on those from migrant/minority backgrounds. The study aimed to:

  • provide a comprehensive analysis and overview of the diversity of teaching staff in the EU with regards migrant and/or minority background
  • analyse the barriers to entering and remaining in the teaching profession for candidates with a migrant and/or minority background
  • map and analyse policies, strategies and initiatives in Member States which aim to encourage more migrants and/or cultural minorities to enter the teaching force
  • develop conclusions and recommendations at EU and national level, based on the evidence gathered in the study.

IES was responsible for the Greek and Cypriot national reports.
