TE21: A Teacher Education Model for the 21st Century: A report
Issue Date: 
National Institute of Education (Singapore)
NIE TE21 is the outcome of the Programme Review and Enhancement (PRE) initiative which was launched in 2008. In September 2009, NIE published the final report on the review initiative entitled "A Teacher Education Model for the 21st Century (TE21). The report presents six key recommendations that aim to enhance the delivery of teacher education at NIE, leading to a stronger teaching force. The enhancements to the existing model encompass the entire initial teacher preparation – teacher professional development (ITP-TPD) continuum, and focus on key areas of a values-based philosophy of teacher education, teacher outcomes, curriculum refinements and accelerated academic pathways. They are aimed at refreshing, updating and strengthening the NIE model by putting the 21st century learner at the heart of our teacher education goals. The successful implementation of the recommendations is the focus of the TE21 programme which kicked off in November 2009. As one of the key thrusts of the NIE strategic plan or 3:3:3 Roadmap, this implementation programme will be crucial in driving genuine transformation in terms of what we teach, how we teach and how we assess.
