Welcome to the ITQ website.

The ITQ - project aims at developing reflection tools for teachers to reflect on their professional quality.

The aim of the project was to support teachers in Europe to strengthen their professional quality through the development of a toolbox with tools that enables teachers (and other stakeholders) to recognize, reflect upon and to evaluate teacher quality.

The results of the project are now available and can support teachers throughout Europe in raising their voice  in national and European debates on teacher quality.

All outcomes are published on the ITQ website and can be used free of charge by teachers, teacher educators and policy makers throughout Europe.
