The project has four objectives:

[1] to explain continuities and changes in the nature and formation of teacher policy over the last thirty years and their outcomes in different educational systems (Belgium, France and England)

[2] to understand the changing status of the teaching profession and its impact on the diversification of the teaching workforce

[3] to analyse the processes by which teachers are allocated into increasingly diverse working and professional conditions;

[4] to model and predict teacher attrition and migration within a common but differentiated multilevel framework.
