In this project, we adopt a post-comparative mixed-method design and combine four methods:

  • teacher policy analyses at the European and national levels (teacher policy);
  • secondary data analyses of relevant national and international datasets on teacher supply and the profession’s attractiveness (teacher supply);
  • a qualitative, in-depth study of three labour-market spaces in Brussels, Lyon and London (labour markets for teachers);
  • multilevel multi-group analyses of original datasets on teacher mobility, and semi-structured interviews with non-entrants and early leavers (teacher mobility).

The project situates the analysis of teacher policy, supply and mobility in the three national cases of England, France and Belgium in the wider field of European and global education and employment governance.
