Teaching is one of the noblest professions among all. A teacher is the one who is responsible for the overall development of a child.
A child spends most of the time with his or her teacher and so in this way, it is the teacher who can leave a lasting impression in a child’s heart and mind.
The responsibilities of teachers are paramount, and therefore, it becomes more necessary that a teacher should have proper experience and knowledge in ones’ subject but also on the moral ground.
Several governments and non-government organizations are constantly working in promoting teachers’ education.
One such organization is the Association for Teacher Education in Europe.
