About the publication

If a qualified and motivated teaching force is key to achieving the Education 2030 goals, teacher career structures may represent a powerful leverage to improve teachers' motivation. What is the relation between teacher motivation and organization of careers? What models of teacher career organization exist around the world? Which are most successful according to available research? What lessons can be drawn for the design and implementation of career ladder systems? Drawing on the experience of a wide range of countries, this book explores the links between career structures and teacher motivation, identifying different models of teacher career organization and related implementation challenges. It offers valuable guidance to educational planners and human resource managers seeking ways to make the teaching career more attractive to potential candidates and to motivate those already on the job.
