Our intention is to discuss the training of educators and teachers
in Portugal, from pre-school education to the 2nd grade school
teaching, as well as its evolution from the beginning of the new
millennium, taking into account the processes of Europeanisation
and its impact on the nation-state and its educational policies.
Within this perspective, we will proceed with an analysis of
documents taken from a broad range of sources in an attempt to
cast a more intelligible light on the options of educational policy on
the initial training of educators and teachers, namely with respect
to recruitment, training structure and the professional profile.
