Pestalozzi Programme of the Council of Europe

The PESTALOZZI Programme is the Council of Europe programme for the professional development of teachers and education actors. It bases its work on the standards and reference texts of the Council of Europe, such as recommandations and conventions. It also produces training and teaching resources. 
You will find in this section the relevant reference texts and publications as well as the pedagogical resources and reports that result from the various training activities.

The Pestalozzi Programme is the Council of Europe’s special tool for offering professional development activities to education professionals. Under the responsibility of the Council of Europe Steering Committee for Education, it provides them with a variety of training enabling them to enhance their knowledge and improve their skills in respect of the Council of Europe’s priorities in the education field: democracy, human rights and the rule of law (see section on “The Council of Europe”).

Although the importance of these three areas has been acknowledged by political leaders and education professionals, it is a harder task to translate these aims into practical and meaningful educational activities for the younger generations. Pestalozzi Programme activities are specifically intended to bridge the gap between theory and practice and to enable participants to prepare approaches and materials which they can subsequently use directly in their own professional activities.

Two main kinds of activities are available under the programme: European Modules for trainer
training and European Workshops and Seminars.
