TALIS is the first international programme to focus on the learning environment and the working conditions of teachers in schools.

It offers an opportunity for teachers and school principals to give their input into education analysis and policy development in some key policy areas. Cross-country analysis from TALIS allows countries to identify other countries facing similar challenges and to learn from other policy approaches. Read more
