London Economics were commissioned by the European Parliament to undertake an analysis of teacher mobility within the European Union. The study undertakes a quantitative and qualitative analysis of teacher mobility across the European Union Member States where information exists. It explores the relative benefits, costs, strengths and weaknesses of the various mobility programmes. On the basis of case studies we identify mobility practices that have been successful but also look at areas where some improvements may be made.

The study provides policy recommendations at European, national and school decision-making levels that might be useful to improve the design and the implementation of mobility programmes.
