This invited consultation aimed to explore teacher education policy and provision in Scotland to inform the Education Council of the Netherlands on the teacher training work programme. Three key questions were considered in relation to the councils recent report: • What is the government’s role in teacher education? • Are the existing proficiency standards adequate for teacher education? • Is harmonization of teacher training programmes in other respects possible and desirable? Effective teaching does not let itself be contained in a unidimensional definition. A vision of what constitutes a good education or what a well-prepared new teacher might look like is attainable, yet needed changes cannot occur without risk. Perhaps the most enduring and powerful influences on teachers are those that enrich their images of the possible.
