The paper presents recent data on teacher issues and trends which reveal the points of convergence among European countries and also indicate the gap between general policy formulations and their translation into national practices. The first issue addressed is the selection of future teachers and the retention of the best qualified by securing the sustainability of quality education. In the attempts to achieve high teacher quality the greatest convergence among countries occurred in the area of teacher initial education involving "the universitation" of study programmes for all teacher profiles. Another convergence point has been the formulation of the common principles underlying teacher profiles and competences. The fourth common issue refers to the need for improvement of the induction procedure and/or supervision support to beginning teachers. One of the most emphasised topics of discussion and action has been the further professionalization of teaching including implementation of the mechanisms of external and internal evaluation of teaching.
