Professional Certification: Promoting, Recognising and Rewarding Accomplished Teaching
This paper focuses on the challenge of developing a national system for recognising and rewarding accomplished teachers. What might be involved and how might this be achieved? It draws on the experience of several countries that have sought to reform teacher career structures and pay systems so that there is a closer alignment between career progression and developing expertise as a teacher. I understand that Brazil has been moving in this direction and I hope this paper will make a useful contribution to the debate here.
