We commissioned a study to look at the process of initial licensure of teachers in every country in the world and we want to make that data available to researchers and policy advocates everywhere. You can find each country's requirements as well as contact information for government officials responsible for teacher licensure.Licensure Data

"In the developing world, education provides a pathway for improving the social and economic conditions of its citizens. Obtaining a global teaching license would be a game changer for the teachers who are eager to validate their skillset and the countries that are prepared to raise the bar and reimagine what instruction looks like in the 21st century."

“As someone who has traveled to 109 countries and taught history and literature in Japan, Egypt, and China, I understand the immediate and direct impact a global teaching license will have on the education sector. Credentials matter, both in terms of signaling to potential employers that one is qualified to teach and also in helping prepare teachers for the real-life challenges of teaching."
